The HEINZMANN Group announces a strategic investment in the Swiss based gas sensor and analyzer manufacturer Bright Sensors SA.

Through this step, Bright Sensors SA will be in the position to accelerate product development, marketing and sales of state-of-the-art gas sensors. These sensors are aimed at reliably determining the quality characteristics of various gas compositions in gas grids and in the area of engine applications, which is particularly important for HEINZMANN.

The investment provides Bright Sensors access to HEINZMANN`S over 120 years of technical leadership and expertise in product development and manufacturing whilst simultaneously obtaining access to HEINZMANN`s global sales network.

HEINZMANN will obtain access to Bright Sensors propriety gas sensor technology allowing for ultra-low cost, real-time, and accurate gas quality measurement which enable efficiency increases and make the use of gaseous fuels with various compositions (e.g. biomethane, hydrogen containing gas blends, etc.) technically and economic possible already today.

Bright Sensors` CEO Bart Riemens stated: "We are extremely proud to welcome HEINZMANN as a strategic investor in our company since it demonstrates our technology is essential in a world that needs to decarbonize rapidly. The support and expertise of HEINZMANN is exactly what we need in the current phase of our young company."
HEINZMANN Group CEO Markus Gromer stated "On the way to decarbonization, it is to be expected that the composition and consequent quality of the gaseous energy carriers offered will vary greatly. With this strategic investment, HEINZMANN is going to assist Bright Sensors in further development of technology for gas quality measurement which will become absolutely necessary in gas, combustion engines and gas turbine industries for achieving future environmental goals by use of "green" fuels.”
