Leighton charges into electric vehicle market

Leighton Contractors has taken over the licence of one of the country’s fledgling electric vehicle (EV) support companies as the construction giant expands its network business.

Leighton’s Visionstream unit, whose operations extend from work on the National Broadband Network to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, bought the key assets of ChargePoint, an operator of EV charging stations across Australia and New Zealand.

“The ChargePoint business provides the telecommunications network for the charging of electric vehicles,” said Allan Bradford, general manager of Visionstream.

“We are excited about the ChargePoint business, we see this as a growth opportunity for Visionstream,” he said.

“Visionstream purchased the exclusive licence to the ChargePoint products to expand and diversify our business in Australia and New Zealand.”

Visionstream already had a close working relationship with ChargePoint, having built their network, the company said.

The companies have not released terms of the deal, which has been kept under wraps since its completion in May.
