Siemens to acquire Heliox

Siemens AG has signed an agreement to acquire Heliox, a Netherlands-based technology company in fast charging solutions, serving e-Bus and e-Truck fleets and passenger vehicles. The acquisition will complement Siemens’ existing eMobility charging portfolio, adding products and solutions for DC fast charging focused on eBus and eTruck fleets.

Heliox’s portfolio will also extend Siemens’ market reach, primarily in Europe and North America, while improving capabilities in power electronics. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval.

“This is an important milestone that adds value to our fast-growing eMobility charging business. In addition to expanding our offering, we see digitalisation and software potential with regard to energy and depot management and services,” says Matthias Rebellius, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Smart Infrastructure.

Siemens eMobility is part of Siemens Smart Infrastructure. It offers IoT-enabled hardware, software and services for AC and DC charging from 11kW – 300kW for a broad range of applications.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Heliox employs around 330 people. Siemens acquires the company from private equity firm, Waterland, and an entity owned by a group of employees and individual shareholders.
