GAUSSIN – (EURONEXT GROWTH: ALGAU – FR0013495298), a pioneer in clean and intelligent freight transport, announces the creation of a subsidiary in the United Kingdom, to be based in Wickford, Essex. GAUSSIN UK Ltd. will be responsible for the deployment of GAUSSIN’s range of electric and hydrogen vehicles with the major players in logistics, retail and transport in the UK. A strategy which will also involve licence sales to local partners.
The British government has recently launched initiatives to provide financial incentives for electric trucks in the form of subsidies and tax breaks, tightening emission regulation, and falling battery prices provide growth opportunities for companies like GAUSSIN, by making the capital investment required to purchase electric trucks more attractive relative to their diesel counterparts. Given this increased focus on clean transportation, it makes the UK a logical focus for expansion for GAUSSIN to support strategic opportunities with major players in the logistics space.
“The decision to expand our presence into UK was a logical step in our business growth strategy,”
said Christophe Gaussin, CEO of the GAUSSIN Group.
