Siemens Limited has announced that it will acquire the electric vehicle division of Mumbai-based Mass-Tech Controls Private Limited. The division is engaged in design, engineering and manufacturing of a wide range of AC chargers and 30-300kW capacity DC chargers for EVs. The purchase consideration is ₹38 crore on a cash free and debt free basis and subject to other adjustments that are mutually agreed between the parties to the transaction.
“Post the acquisition, the EV division of Mass-Tech Controls will be fully integrated into the e-mobility business unit of the Smart Infrastructure Business of Siemens Limited. While Siemens is active globally in the e-mobility infrastructure space for more than a decade, the addition of products will complete Siemens India’s portfolio of e-mobility solutions and will address the needs of the Indian market. The Indian market has unique requirements such as lower power rating and parallel charging,” the company said in a statement.
