As part of its strategic development plan to take service, support, sales, training and manufacturing of its electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging solutions closer to customers around the world, Australia-based Tritium has announced the official opening of a European Headquarters in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The facility will be the center for its sales program across the territory and also house a state-of-the-art training and accreditation unit for technical servicing and customer support. In addition, it has the capability to customise its product range to meet local market needs and specific customer requirements.
A major feature of the Amsterdam site is its in-confidence testing center, available for use by car manufacturers. As a privately-owned company with no strategic partnerships in the automotive sector, Tritium is able to offer comprehensive and confidential testing facilities for any automotive vehicles‘behind closed doors.
Tritium is developing infrastructure solutions for the EV sector globally and is already a major supplier of fast chargers to the region, having taken around 20% of the west Europe market since the launch of its Veefil 50kW DC range in 2013.
It has supplied more than 50% of the DC fast charging units operational in Norway and is looking to develop its sales further in regions such as Germany, UK, France, BeNeLux and Scandinavia, where its distinctive Veefil range is already installed on charging highways and in city centers.
Tritium is also in the process of building a network of service partners across Europe (who will receive specialist training and Tritium accreditation) as part of the company’s continuing development of customer support.
Amsterdam is the second overseas facility opened by Tritium in just over a year—its first international facility in Torrance, California, US opened in 2017. Four months ago Tritium moved into a larger global HQ facility in Brisbane, which has given the company the capability to increase production seven-fold.
