Radius launches electric vehicle charging with Chargepoint Europe B.V.
Radius Payment Solutions has made a significant investment in Chargepoint Europe B.V., a leading supplier of electric vehicle charging points in Europe.
Based in Zevenaar near Arnhem, Chargepoint has developed a wide range of high speed commercial units to suit the needs of the rapidly growing market for electric vehicle charging. The customer base includes hotels, companies and local government. By combining Radius’ sales and marketing expertise with Chargepoint’s excellent range of charging units, Radius believes it will have a compelling offer for customers as they invest in this new technology.
Bill Holmes, Radius’s CEO, commented: “This is a really exciting step for Radius into the world of E-Mobility, which is becoming an increasingly important sector. As the sales of electric vehicles continue to accelerate over the decade ahead there is going to be a huge demand for charging units and network access. This acquisition will give Radius a strong position right at the heart of Europe. Chargepoint has a great team and we look forward to partnering with them to accelerate growth, as well as investing in further technological developments over the forthcoming years.”
Hans Loohuis, Managing Director of Chargepoint Europe, said: “We are invigorated by this investment of Radius and we are looking forward to jointly accelerating the European transition to sustainable electric mobility. Radius adds unique expertise in expanding across international business markets. As we are entering the next growth phase across different countries, this will enable us to set the pace in providing smart charging solutions to meet the needs of a broader range of clients.”
