HögforsGST is developing its technological capabilities with an investment in Bithouse
HögforsGST has made an investment in Bithouse, a hardware and software development company based in Tampere, Finland. The investment is a natural continuation of the collaboration between HögforsGST's software development team and Bithouse, which has focused e.g. on the development of HögforsGST's Fiksu Control System.
Antti Hartman, Managing Director of HögforsGST, is pleased with the cooperation between HögforsGST and Bithouse. The aim of the investment is to support Bithouse's growth and secure HögforsGST's foothold as a pioneer in heating technology.
- The investment in Bithouse brings us additional momentum for the development of smart solutions, such as the Fiksu Control System. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best heating systems in the world, and we believe that joining forces with an expert like Bithouse makes reaching this goal possible.
The collaboration between HögforsGST's own software development team and Bithouse has already been long and fruitful, but the investment takes it to a new level. Tommi Nummelin, CEO of Bithouse, which specializes in hardware and software development for building and industrial automation, thinks that the cooperation between Bithouse and HögforsGST is significant for both parties.
- From Bithouse's point of view, it's great to have a top heating and cooling expert like HögforsGST as a partner. An even deeper partnership will also allow us to invest more in the development of new technology.
The heating industry is currently undergoing a major revolution as heating systems are becoming a part of smart and low emission living environments. Investments in smart technologies are also an integral cornerstone of HögforsGST's growth strategy.
- Bithouse's expertise in software and protocol development strengthens our own Fiksu development team. Additional investment is needed as the demand for smart and integrated control systems like Fiksu is constantly growing. For example, the district heating industry is currently making a major shift towards smart and low-emission fourth-generation district heating. We aim to meet this demand even more in the future, Hartman concludes.
