Atom Power Expands Huntersville, North Carolina, Operations

Atom Power, a North Carolina-based electric vehicle charging solutions manufacturer, plans to expand its manufacturing facility in Huntersville, North Carolina. The $4.2 million project is expected to create 205 jobs in Mecklenburg County.

The investment will include the company's corporate headquarters, R&D, manufacturing and support functions and will allow Atom Power to efficiently bring its solid-state circuit breakers for EVs to market.

“Since Atom Power’s founding in 2014, we’ve been committed to growing our footprint within North Carolina,” said Ryan Kennedy, co-founder and CEO of Atom Power. “Our continued expansion in Huntersville will enable us to further tap into the rich and diverse local talent pool, while also supporting the growing demand for our unique approach to EV charging infrastructure.”

Atom Power has developed the world’s first and only UL-listed, solid-state circuit breaker which is being applied to EV charging infrastructures for fleet operators, multi-family residential properties and destination charging.

“Atom Power’s decision to expand in North Carolina reiterates the fact that North Carolina is not only a top state for business but a leader in the EV and clean energy space,” noted Christopher Chung, CEO of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC). “We are proud that a homegrown company like Atom Power has achieved such success that they are able to expand to offer more innovative solutions and to bolster the EV supply chain in the state, the Southeast and throughout the country.”

Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Central Piedmont Community College, the Town of Huntersville, Mecklenburg County, Lake Norman Economic Development, the Mecklenburg County Office of Economic Development, and the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance.
