Electromin, an eMobility turn-key solutions company wholly owned by Petromin Corporation (“Petromin”), a leading mobility solutions provider in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has entered a strategic partnership with pioneers in sustainable e-mobility, Quantron AG.

The strategic partnership between Electromin and Quantron was formalized on the opening day of the EV Auto Show, Saudi Arabia’s first ever EV Auto Show, held in Riyadh from November 1-3.

Electromin, as one of the leading e-mobility companies, is offering bespoke and future-proof solutions for private residences, workplaces, and public spaces, to enable the e-mobility evolution for everyone at every touchpoint.

Built upon 140 years of experience, Quantron AG creates holistic service solutions to achieve Zero emissions with real positive environmental impact for people and goods – in particular for trucks, buses, and vans with fully electric powertrains and H2 fuel cell technology.

As a high-tech spinoff of the renowned Haller KG, the German company combines over 140 years of commercial vehicle experience with state-of-the-art e-mobility know-how.

Quantron AG also offers innovative mobility solutions for environmentally friendly goods and passenger transport.

Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Kalyana Sivagnanam, Group CEO of Petromin said, “QUANTRON has appointed Electromin as a distributor for the QUANTRON QARGO 4 EV light truck in KSA as well as a feasibility for other last mile vehicles.

“With time, this agreement will be extended to include other emission-free products, based on market suitability and requirements.  This is the start of a bigger partnership as we are also exploring other avenues of mutual interest to strengthen this alliance.

“At Petromin, we strongly believe in sustainability and are guided by our principals of responsible corporate citizenship. Two years ago, we embarked on an exciting journey with an ambitious goal to transform our storied successful company, from primarily a premier lubricant manufacturer and operator of the largest network of quick service facilities, to a world class automotive technology, advanced mobility, and avant-garde transportation solutions company. As part of that journey, we introduced Electromin, a technology driven, turn-key e-mobility solutions provider that is now leading the electrification of the Kingdom and GCC.”

Based on its strategic partnership with Electromin, Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG added, “QUANTRON is a very successful player in Europe by being technology agnostic and offering BEV and FCEV solutions to our clients to enable them on their journey to become zero-emission transport, solution providers and most recently launched at the IAA in Hannover the European H2 Range Champion with the QHM FCEV and up to 116 KG Hydrogen on board.”

Andreas Haller, Chairman of the QUANTRON board and founder added: “We explored international growth and KSA was one of our key markets. In Electromin and the Petromin Corporation we discovered a huge overlap in our strategy and vision and decided to join forces. We look forward to building a unique skill set together for zero-emission solutions in KSA.””

The collaboration between the two companies will include the promotion, distribution, and servicing of Quantron AG products in Saudi Arabia with an initial focus on BEV last mile vehicles – the QUANTRON QARGO 4 EV light truck.

Strategic ambitions between both companies will be further explored. The distribution agreement is just the first step on a journey, where both companies will bring their complementary skills to the table to become game changers in KSA.
