A pioneer and European expert in electric mobility, the DBT Group (Euronext Growth – ALDBT) offers innovative and sustainable solutions for the energy transition. The French company announces that it has received a grant of EUR1.5m linked to the European recovery fund React-EU. The aid will finance the innovations deployed on its new fast and ultra-fast charging ranges.
Obtaining this grant is a major step in the group’s development strategy. A major player in the fast charging market, DBT is currently experiencing strong development and 3-digit growth made possible by the match between high-performance products and the technical and financial requirements of the market. This aid will strengthen the means put in place to support the three pillars of an industrial policy resolutely geared towards eco-sustainability.
- Even more efficient technology : marketing in 2023 of a new range allowing two to three times faster charging, which anticipates future communication and payment standards
- A robust industrial strategy : Prioritization of local supplies for products manufactured by employees recruited in the Hauts-de-France employment area, with the aim of shortening delivery times and production time
- A commitment to the environment : reliable infrastructures with high maintainability, extending their lifespan and reducing the carbon footprint of projects.
Thanks to this subsidy, which covers almost 85% of the investments of the project until 2023, DBT plans to hire up to 15 people in its plant in Brebières. The announcement of this boost is a reminder of the company’s efforts to finance its development plan. In July 2021, DBT had already announced that it had obtained a France-Relance subsidy which would increase the capacity of its northern plant tenfold by extending the production space and acquiring high-end test equipment.
DBT’s technological project was selected by the Hauts-de-France Region, decision-maker in the allocation of Feder REACT-EU funds. React-EU is the acronym for “Recovery Assistance for Cohesion and the Territories of Europe“. The purpose of this envelope is to provide financial support to project promoters to contribute to economic recovery. The program prioritizes ecological and digital transitions for a smart and sustainable post-pandemic recovery.
“ I would particularly like to thank the Hauts-de-France region, which supported us in obtaining this grant. The race for excellence in the design and manufacture of complex technological equipment leads us to constantly innovate in order to offer the market solutions that are reliable, quick and easy to maintain. This funding will enable us to strengthen our strengths on the strengths that make us successful today: quality products with a sustainable industrial model. This is the challenge of this funding program which highlights the know-how of the territories to develop eco-sustainable solutions for the mobility of the future. », concludes Alexandre BORGOLTZ, Managing Director of DBT
