Cherry signs deal to sell electric vehicles
A waste management company headed by Barbadian entrepreneur Anderson Cherry has established a new partnership and Canadian entity, Envirotech Vehicles Inc, led by Phillip Oldridge.
It will see Cherry’s company Joseph Holdings, Inc, a member the Jose Y Jose Group of companies, promoting and selling Envirotech’s products throughout the Caribbean.
That company is said to be a provider of new zero-emission, purpose-built electric vehicles.

The vehicles will initially be used as demonstration vehicles and may also be sold to customers”.
In a joint announcement of the arrangement, Cherry, who chairs Joseph Holdings, stated: “Our partnership with Oldridge and the [Envirotech] team brings with it a viable solution to meeting our desire to be a key contributor to each of the region’s governments’ and agencies’ push to go green, and we are excited to be able to do that.” (SC)
