Epyon, a European leader in the development and marketing of smart charging solutions for the emerging electric vehicle (EV) market, today announced the opening of a new office in the UK as part of its ongoing global growth strategy. The new UK office is in addition to two new offices just opened in the Netherlands and Japan.
To most effectively meet the rapidly growing market demand for EV charging solutions Epyon’s UK office will provide customer support and a base for business development into the UK & Ireland. In addition to its existing offices in Rijswijk, the Netherlands, Epyon has also opened an office in Eindhoven located at the prestigious High Tech Campus (http://www.hightechcampus.nl/). The location gives Epyon unparalleled access to software skills and resources. Additionally the office is close to the Automotive Technology Centre (http://www.atcentre.nl/) in Helmond which is at the forefront of Dutch innovation in the automobile industry.
Completing Epyon’s current expansion round, an office has been opened in Japan. This office is strategically located to take advantage of the Japanese EV market, always at the forefront of trends and new developments. The location also ensures Epyon is physically represented at the CHAdeMO (http://www.chademo.com/indexa.html), an association for the standardization of quick-charging protocols, headquartered in Japan.
“We are excited to announce the opening of the three offices,” says Hans Streng, CEO of Epyon. “The expansion of Eypon’s footprint signifies the rapid growth in the EV market and is also a testament to our commercially available, and operational, solution. We have aggressive growth plans to meet the market demands for EV and this development is a further step in our ambitious strategy”.
Epyon currently employs 40 highly skilled people and anticipates a significant increase of staff by the end of 2010. New hires will be made in the areas of customer support, business development and R&D. The company has planned further regional expansion in Europe for the remainder of 2010. In May 2010 Epyon announced the opening of the first commercial fast charging station in Europe.
