The MCLA follows the signing of the term sheet in September 2021. The 20-year joint-venture and licencing agreement will see the local assembly and supply of Gaussin's range of zero emission vehicles and systems for port terminals, airports, logistics and people transport applications.
Headquartered in Héricourt, in the east of France, Gaussin is a technology and engineering company that designs, assembles and offers zero-emission, smart and connected on/off road vehicles for freight and small passenger transport vehicles.
Both parties will create an Australian jurisdiction Joint Venture, owned 51% by Nexport and 49% by Gaussin.
The MCLA marks a major step forward in the progression of an agreement that will bring a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future for Australia and New Zealand through the implementation of locally manufactured net zero vehicles and systems.
Nexport is currently in discussions to secure a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility around metropolitan Sydney with a shortlist of sites currently being considered. The partnership is expected to create around 80 jobs.
Nexport CEO Michel van Maanen said: "The transport industry is the third largest polluter in Australia. As the first truly integrated solutions provider, Nexport connects infrastructure, assets, and applications through a local value chain helping government and industry transition towards zero emissions.
This joint venture will produce the best-engineered, most cost-effective ZEVs and lead Australia to a cleaner future. Progressing this agreement with Gaussin highlights Nexport's commitment to this cause and establishing Australia as the leading manufacturer in a rapidly growing sector."
Gaussin CEO Christophe Gaussin added: "We are very proud of this new ambitious partnership with Nexport. Gaussin and Nexport are complementary and our partnership paves the way to a large scale distribution of zero-emission vehicles in the Australia and New Zealand markets quickly and efficiently. Our companies share a common ambition to fight against climate change and to help the mobility and transportation sectors to become carbon free."
