Radius fuels expansion with US office launch

Bill Holmes

A Crewe-based company that provides fuel cards to businesses is pushing ahead with its ambitious growth plan with the opening of an office in the US.

Radius Payment Solutions’ Boston office will create six jobs initially, with more to follow in 2018.

Radius will be focused on promoting its Kinesis telematics product, which has been developed through the technological expertise of its in-house software development team, to small and medium sized businesses.

The vehicle tracking solution enables live updates on location and performance as well as driver behaviour to be assessed remotely using iOS & Android Apps by fleet managers, facilitating more efficient fuel use and driving style.

Bill Holmes, CEO at Radius Payment Solutions, said: “The opening of a Radius US office marks a major new step in the development of our international business. We have chosen Boston as our launch location for a variety of reasons including ease of access to Manchester, availability of bright local talent and good North America transport connections. We have started by selling our award winning telematics solution Kinesis and will be following on with fuel cards and a full suite of fleet solutions as the business develops.

“We will be supporting our new local employees with some of our experienced European managers.”

The announcement follows Radius’ expansion into the Asian market in 2016 with office openings in Singapore and Malaysia to build a more global client portfolio and to push sales of Kinesis and its Shell fuel card to new customers.

Radius is one of the fastest growing companies in the telematics sector and Kinesis is currently used by more than 55,000 vehicles across the globe.
