How Tritium has rapidly become a major global player in EV infrastructure
Tritium is an innovative technology-led company that, through extensive R&D, continually pushes the boundaries of what is possible in energy management. In just four years it has become an international specialist in developing EV fast charging infrastructure solutions and has made a major impact on traditional fast-charging markets around the world. Here are six key contributors to Tritium’s success:
- Innovative technology - developed the Veefil range of fast chargers recognised as the most technologically-advanced in the market. The size, weight and unique liquid-cooling systems significantly reduces cost of ownership through low installation and shipping costs and reduced maintenance costs - compared to competitor models.
- The Veefil has revolutionised the style and look of fast chargers - transforming the product from a cumbersome unexciting box into stylish, colourful and attractive street furniture, ergonomically designed. The Veefil’s distinctive design is easily identifiable and a pleasure for end-users to interact with.
- The Veefil’s unique design offers branding opportunities, facilitating additional revenue stream from advertising.
- Tritium owns the whole of the manufacturing processes, with complete control of units from design, tailoring solutions, manufacturing to servicing practices. Tritium partners with its customers for optimum results, rather than sell standardised products.
- Tritium provides flexible, scalable technology solutions to suit individual customer requirements.
Tritium is independently owned and not aligned with any auto manufacturer. This enables it to work in a confidential environment with each customer, to deliver tailored solutions that best meet their interests.
