About Kempower

Kempower is a member of Kemppi-Group. Kemppi-Group is best known from the global welding machine brand Kemppi. Since 1949 Kemppi has delivered thousands of welding machines. In 1977, the group introduced the very first inverter-based DC power source in the world.

As other applications regarding DC power became more interesting, Kempower was founded originally in the 90’s to target the non-welding part of the DC power source market. The most famous reference from the project was the CERN particle accelerator where Kempower delivered almost 1000 pcs of 2000 A power sources and received the supplier of the year award.

In 2009, the project business ended due to several reasons and the Kempower technical team was transferred to work as the research department of Kemppi. One research area was new businesses – and it included EV charging.

After several studies and piloting projects in Finland with 20 kW CHAdeMO fast chargers in 2014-2017, Kemppi Group decided to restart Kempower in the autumn of 2017 as an independent company from Kemppi Welding with 100% focus on EV charging.

Official operation started in 2018. The core technical know-how from both Kempower special projects and Kemppi research department formed the backbone of the team. This would be the beginning of creating technology that Defines Charging.
