Robotic EV charging specialist Rocsys has announced the opening of a second office location. Driven by the closing of its recent 5.25-million-euro investment round, the Delft-based company selected Portland, Oregon as the site for its new offices. With this opening, the startup is accelerating its ambitions to expand into the North American market and has its foot in the door of the American West Coast, where the EV market is rapidly growing.

With this westward expansion, Rocsys is now busy tailoring its charging solution and setting up local production in the region to comply with the Buy American Act, which restricts federal government contracts on products that are less than 50 percent domestic. “The electric vehicle market is growing tremendously fast, and we’ve developed a solution to help it scale even further. We chose Portland, Oregon to be close to our customers and manufacturers on the West Coast,” says Rocsys CEO and co-founder Crijn Bouman. “In addition, Portland serves as a robust hub of the community and industry stakeholders who are committed to transportation electrification. We’re glad that there’s so much trust in our company. Not only from our customers but also from our investors who enable us to expand rapidly.”
