Crewe-based Radius Payment Solutions has continued its growth plan with the opening of its first North American office in Boston.
The new office will create six jobs initially, with more to follow in 2018, with a focus on promoting its Kinesis telematics product.
Radius Payment Solutions‘ chief executive Bill Holmes (pictured) 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.
