Back in September, last year, German zero-emission vehicle manufacturer Quantron expanded to North America by founding Quantron USA. Shortly thereafter, a first framework agreement was signed with TMP Logistics Group Ltd. for an order of up to 500 FCEV Class 8 trucks with FCEV drive system to be delivered by 2024. To meet this challenge and further build the company in the U.S., CEO Richard Haas has now brought more top-qualified executives onto the team.
