With the acquisition of H-TEC SYSTEMS, from now on we will cover all processing steps of the hydrogen economy under the umbrella of MAN Energy Solution. By doing so, we are strategically investing in our expertise as tomorrow’s provider of sustainable energy solutions and providing H-TEC SYSTEMS with complete access to our resources and sales networks at the same time. However, the current other shareholder GP JOULE will remain an important sales partner.”

We are pleased to see that two pioneers of hydrogen technology, namely MAN Energy Solutions and H-TEC SYSTEMS are rooted in Bavaria.”
