BRISBANE, Australia, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tritium DCFC Limited (Tritium) (Nasdaq: DCFC), a global leader in direct current (DC) fast chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), welcomed Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese to the company’s campus in Brisbane, Australia earlier today. During his visit, the Prime Minister toured Tritium's state-of-the-art test and R&D facilities, which feature the world's highest power-enabled electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing chamber, thermal testing chambers, impact testing, and more. The Prime Minister’s visit with Tritium comes on the heels of the introduction of the National Reconstruction Fund, which is part of the Government’s plan to rebuild Australia’s industrial base.
During his visit, the Prime Minister said, “This is my third visit to Tritium. Every time I come back, I hear about more revenue, more jobs being created, and more countries where Australia is exporting to. This is a great success story here and I congratulate everyone at Tritium for their achievements.”
The $15 billion National Reconstruction Fund will provide loans, guarantees, and equity to support projects that create secure and well-paid jobs, drive regional development, and build Australia’s sovereign capability. The National Reconstruction Fund will support existing and emerging industries to capture new opportunities, including from the transition to net zero emissions. Tritium’s business encompasses many of the Fund’s identified key priorities for investment, including renewables and low emission technologies, transport, and advanced manufacturing.

"Tritium represents one part of the Australian industrial base of the future, diversifying the economy through an advanced technology global export and manufacturing business, which derives most of its revenue from the European and North American markets. The fact that our infrastructure technology also reduces dangerous emissions and builds a cleaner, greener planet, is the icing on the cake.”
