Bowie, MD., (March 11, 2024) - Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading global manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced the Company has established its global corporate headquarters in a 15,000 square-foot facility in Bowie, MD.

Complementing this pivotal move, Blink has announced plans to increase its manufacturing capacity by constructing a new LEED Gold-certified 30,000 square-foot production facility. The new facility will include an extra production line to streamline operations for expedited and increased production of EV charging units. The Company plans to significantly increase its manufacturing capacity by constructing a new, modern facility that demonstrates Blink’s dedication to responding to the increasing global demand for EV charging infrastructure.
