Miami Beach, FL – Blink Charging Co., a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced further international expansion through a variety of hardware and software upgrades and newly signed distribution agreements. Blink and its subsidiaries currently have equipment deployed or provide EV charging services in 18 countries.
The Company has recently completed an international upgrade of the Blink Network, making the proprietary software available in 17 countries and US territories with local currency support and four languages. It expects to add another five countries to the Blink Network in the coming weeks. In addition, the Blue Corner Network, Blink’s wholly-owned subsidiary network, is offered in four other European countries.
The software enhancements include onboarding all hardware and EV driver members from the Greek joint venture, Blink Charging Hellas, onto the Blink Network. The addition of 210 EV chargers in Greece to the Blink Network will provide a more streamlined EV driver experience.
Due to increased interest in EV charging infrastructure in Mexico, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Brazil, a variety of reseller and distribution agreements have been signed for Blink expansion in Latin America. These agreements allow Blink to quickly expand its footprint with local partners to provide Blink hardware and software across the region. Indeed, recently, the Company has deployed or sold Blink charging stations in Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama, Jamaica, and Aruba.
As the Company expands internationally, it has also grown its international operations and support teams opening Blink entities in El Salvador, Chile, and Mexico. So far, Blink has hired 54 employees in territories outside the US to support its global expansion.
