Charger deployment arrives as the Maryville location continues to transform into a manufacturing hub for DENSO electrification and safety systems
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – DENSO, a leading mobility supplier, has deployed five EV ARC™ solar-powered charging systems from Beam Global, a leading clean technology provider, at its Maryville, Tennessee, location. The charging systems, which have been installed at buildings across campus, are available to all DENSO employees with battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
In addition to providing employees with convenient vehicle charging options, the EV ARCs make and store their own electricity to deliver clean and renewable energy. They also monitor how much carbon is saved compared to combustion engine vehicles with each use. Together, these capabilities contribute to DENSO’s Two Great Causes: Green – achieving carbon neutrality by 2035 – and Peace of Mind – creating a safe and seamless world for all.
“The charger deployment helps us support our employees and represents a key part of DENSO’s future vision: helping society become greener and safer through innovative technology,” said Mark Moses, vice president of Electrification Systems at DENSO. “We’re doing this by reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing operations, of the energy we use and of the products we produce. Beam’s technology contributes to these efforts, providing a sustainable solution that helps protect our local communities and the planet.”
The charger deployment comes as DENSO is transforming its 2.6-million-square-foot, 4,500-person Maryville location into a manufacturing hub for electrification and safety systems. Such technologies are critical to the automotive industry as it continues to create vehicles that are more electrified and connected than ever before.
“DENSO is empowering its team members to get to and from work more sustainably with the carbon-free electricity that EV ARC systems provide. And they’re removing environmental impact from the EV charger installation because EV ARC deploys without construction,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “We applaud DENSO leadership and look forward to providing for their expanding needs and the needs of the many corporations who will do the same thing.”
