“I am very much looking forward to a very positive global launch with the Quantron team and to win over the rapidly growing potential of the international commercial vehicle markets through our attractive range of battery-electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles along with our system solutions,” said Rachner. “At the same time, we can also offer our customers our complete ecosystem, Quantron-as-a-Service, as a sustainable 360-degree solution.”

Rachner most recently worked at Mercedes Benz as head of Sales & Marketing General Distributors. He was responsible for more than 130 markets in South America, Africa, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Europe. Previously, he was senior general manager Operative Sales Europe at Mitsubishi Motors.

“With our Quantron brand vehicles as well as with the retrofitting business that has already been successfully established in Europe, we are targeting additional international markets,” said Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG. “Our current focus is on developing the hydrogen ecosystem with vehicles and the corresponding infrastructure. Here we are looking more closely at North America and would like to drive forward our hydrogen offensive there together with our partner, Ballard Power Systems. With Utz Rachner’s international experience, we are ideally positioned to achieve these global objectives.”

Quantron said it is also expanding its team in other areas. It already has more than 100 employees, with more than 50% of them in the technical R&D and product areas.
