MUMBAI, India, May 19, 2023 – In a step to address the fast-growing demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in India, Siemens Limited, signed an agreement to acquire the EV 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 to 300kW capacity DC chargers for various end applications for EVs. The purchase consideration is Rs. 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.
Closing of the acquisition is subject to fulfilment of condition precedents as agreed between the parties and receipt of requisite regulatory, statutory and other approvals. 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, 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 acquisition will help us to accelerate our growth plans in the e-mobility business segment and will expand our portfolio of sustainability solutions for our customers.

Subhash Patil, Chairman and Managing Director, Mass-Tech Controls Private Limited, said, “We are extremely delighted with the acquisition of our business by Siemens, one of the most well-recognized and respected organizations globally.
