Press release: Juice Technology AG expands into the Asian markets
Incorporation of Zhejiang Juice Technology Co., Ltd.: Juice Technology AG expands into the Asian markets
Juice Technology AG announces its newly incorporated subsidiary Zhejiang Juice Technology Co., Ltd.
Juice Technology AG, producer of electric charging stations and software and the market leader in portable charging stations for electric vehicles, is expanding its market territory into Asia and has founded a subsidiary, Zhejiang Juice Technology Co., Ltd. based in Hangzhou, China.
Hangzhou, the capitol city of China’s Zhejiang Province, has a population of some nine million people. The metropolitan area is a major technology hub, home to important academic and training institutions, research facilities and development centres of multinational corporations such as Siemens. Numerous major Chinese companies are likewise headquartered here, including the Alibaba Group which counts among the world’s largest online retailers. Hangzhou is thus host to significant economic clout.
China eagerly awaits portable wallbox chargers
The electric charging infrastructure producer Juice has continuously expanded its portfolio over the past seven years, perfecting and adapting it to current demand and circumstances. Although already the global market leader in portable 22-kW charging stations, the company is by no means resting on its laurels, and is now founding Zhejiang Juice Technology Co., Ltd. with head office in Hangzhou, China to advance their business in Asia.
The location was not chosen by chance: China plays a leading role in electromobility, with roughly one half of all electric cars sold worldwide plying the roads of the world’s most populous nation. The high demand for mobile charging infrastructure reflects this trend.
“China is a huge market, and growth is particularly strong in the electromobility sector. Hence, it was only a matter of time before we would move to strengthen our position in this region with a flexible and diverse team on site,” says Christoph Erni, CEO and founder of Juice Technology AG. “The entire industry is growing on an exponential scale. Consequentially, the time is right to pro-actively expand our business operations in Asia.”
Juice is launching its Hangzhou office with Marius Portmann at the helm of a versatile team covering sales, e-commerce, aftersales, marketing, logistics and human resources. Portmann’s profound knowledge of the country, its culture, language and business customs qualify him well to lead this expansion in China.
Marius Portmann, General Manager China, explains: “The business world in China demands not only intercultural background knowledge and proficient language skills, but also an understanding of the administrative procedures and a professional knack for negotiation. I look forward to contributing now to Juice the skills that I acquired over my eight years of professional activity to date in China. My energy-charged team is highly motivated to drive Juice to new heights of success in the technology hotspot of Hangzhou.”
Juice Technology AG enjoys worldwide presence at multiple locations with its own branch offices, subsidiaries and partner companies, and also has a global network of resellers at its disposal. The company’s in-house workforce meanwhile numbers 170 employees active in development, production, marketing, sales and logistics. The Group is now expanding to include Zhejiang Juice Technology Co., Ltd.
