Brisbane-based EV fast charger specialist Tritium has unveiled plans for expansion of its American footprint with a new manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Tennessee.
Tritium said the new facility would house up to six production lines for its DC fast chargers, including for its award-winning RTM and all-new PKM150 models.
CEO Jane Hunter said the move was designed to boost sales, localize production and expand EV charging infrastructure in the US.
“Tritium’s investment in a US-based, cutting-edge facility for manufacturing is part of our strong push toward global growth in support of the e-mobility industry,” Ms Hunter said.
“With the help of the hard-working residents of Tennessee, we expect to double or even triple our charger production capacity to further our product distribution throughout the United States.”
Tritium, which also expects to announce expansion of its European manufacturing capacity in 2023, said production at the Tennessee facility would commence “sometime in the third quarter of 2022”.
According to the company’s statement, it will produce more than 10,000 DC fast charger units per year, with the potential to scale production approximately 30,000 units per year at peak capacity.
