Techinvest Holding AG, the parent company of Scanlab GmbH, is taking a 25 % stake in the Israeli firm Holo/or Ltd. They are recognised as a pioneer in developing diffractive optical elements for industrial applications. By integrating these innovative micro-optical components, such as beam shapers, into its scan solutions, Scanlab can multiply the fields of application for its products. Diffractive optical elements (DOE) can be used to specifically shape laser beams. To achieve the ‘diffractive effect’, DOEs employ microstructures etched into a substrate using a lithographic process. Glass is typically the substrate — but plastics, metals or semiconductors can also be used. Techinvest Holding acquired a quarter of all Holo/or shares in August 2020. Over coming years, the holding company will take over all remaining shares. The acquired company will retain its independence and collaborate with sister company Scanlab on a number of projects.

“I am very pleased in finding a suitable partner to whom I can gradually transfer responsibility for my company – and thereby entrust ‘my life’s work’ to good hands. As a founder and entrepreneur, one has not only responsibility for his team, but also a wish to see his vision carried forward. And this is exactly what our collaboration feels like,” states Israel Grossinger, Owner and President of Holo/or.
