Crijn Bouman studied, just like many of you, at the Delft University of Technology. As a student, he had big dreams, he wanted to be an entrepreneur. At the end of his studies, he founded his first company, Epyon.
Epyon, was based in Rijswijk, the Netherlands, and developed, marketed and sold battery-charging products and services for optimized fast charging of electric vehicle batteries, serving customers across Europe with its unique solutions. Together with local installation partners Epyon offered maximum value to customers in the ultrafast charging infrastructure, fleet and industrial electric vehicle markets.
Due to its unique technology and the competitive tension and growth in the EV charging market Epyon was acquired, by ABB, in 2011.
After he sold Epyon, he worked as VP, Product Line Management, Global Product Group Electric Vehicle Charging at ABB. In 2019 he founded his second company, ROCSYS.
ROCSYS develops a soft robot arm and computer vision technology that makes it possible to charge an electric vehicle fully automatically. Because people aren’t involved anymore, plugging in and out of the plug can be done faster and safer. For example, the technology makes it possible to safely use high voltages when automatically charging professional vehicles.
