Tritium opens US office
Australian EV charging specialist Tritium has opened new premises in California, marking its first overseas facility.
The facility will service both the North and South America regions and will offer customer support, manufacturing and R&D.
“Since we launched our first Veefil fast charger in 2013, North America has been one of our largest markets,” said Paul Sernia, Tritium’s commercial director. “As our market share has expanded significantly, and in line with our long-term strategy, we are opening regional facilities to maintain our high levels of customer support and engagement.
“The US office is an opportunity for us to build a local network of partners, who we will train to install and service the Veefil range. We will also manufacture our chargers in Torrance which, combined with a growing local network, will bring new jobs into the region.”
The launch of the new office follows the firm’s recent unveiling of three new products, including a fast charger targeted at fleets and workplaces.
The company added that it is planning for international expansion based on its increased global sales.
“We intend the US facility to become the blueprint for further international offices opening in the near future,” added Sernia.
