Brisbane-based manufacturer of DC fast-charging solutions for electrical vehicles, Tritium, has been named as the Premier of Queensland’s Exporter of the Year.
The company also won the Manufacturing Award and progressed as a national finalist in the next Australian Export Awards.
The Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards acknowledge the contribution that exporting businesses make to the state’s economy through job creation and increased prosperity in the community. The Queensland Exporter of the Year Award and the Manufacturing Export Award were accepted by David Finn, co-founder and CEO of Tritium.
“While the Australian EV market continues to expand, global markets, particularly in parts of Europe and in the US, are far advanced and so 98 per cent of our business is exported,” said Finn. “It has been very satisfying to compete so successfully on the global stage and I thank all our team and our supporters in Australia for making this possible.”
Tritium EV chargers are deployed in 26 countries. The company also claims more than 70 per cent market share in Australia. This year, the company won a major deal with the IONITY network – a joint venture of the BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group including Audi and Porsche – to supply up to 400 chargers across 100 sites in Germany, France, UK, Norway and Sweden.
Tritium CEO, David Finn, said the company is expanding its operation in Australia to cater for its continued expansion internationally and nationally.
“We now have more than 200 staff and counting and are expanding our Veefil-PK operations in Brisbane, as well as having offices in the US and Europe,” said Finn. “We continue to design and manufacture all our chargers in Brisbane and we’re proud to call Queensland home.”
In addition to offering high-performance chargers, the company is also present in the 50kW DC Fast Charger market, locally and globally. Earlier this year Tritium signed deals to supply at least 40 Veefil RT-50kW DC fast chargers for the NRMA’s charging network rollout across New South Wales in Australia, and to supply 12 Veefil-RTs to NKM Mobilitas (Mobiliti) in Hungary.
