Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, tech company Altum Technologies has announced EUR 5 million raised in new growth funding and a collaboration with one of the largest steel producers in the world, Japanese Nippon Steel Engineering (NSE).
The collaboration agreement includes licensing of Altum’s software-operated ultrasound technology (ZPD), that process industries can use to clean and prevent fouling of their production equipment, for the Japanese market.
“Altum is one of the most promising tech start-ups in Finland, and Tesi is glad to support the next stage in the company’s growth story. Altum’s ultrasound-based cleaning solution enables the customer plants to operate more energy-efficiently. The growth capital raised strengthens the company’s global operations and further broadens the already significant customer base,” comments Samppa Sirviö, Investment Manager at Tesi.
In the recent financing round, Altum received investments from Maki.vc, LähiTapiola and Tesi (Finnish Industry Investment Ltd). Tesi’s investment was made from the Venture Bridge special investment programme.
