Germany : Nanostart invests in HOLMENKOL

Abstract:
Nanostart AG has taken a 50-percent stake in HOLMENKOL, a supplier of nanotechnology-based sports products.

The renowned German company, with worldwide headquarters in Heimerdingen near Stuttgart, has managed to build on its rich tradition as the oldest brand of ski wax to become a driver of nanotechnological innovation in the sporting goods industry.

HOLMENKOL is successfully pursuing an aggressive growth strategy, particularly through the production of sophisticated nanotech-based coatings which intelligently organize themselves into very thin films which function in entirely new ways.
