ELDICO appoints former CEO of Bruker AXS to the board

ELDICO Scientific will now be supported on its board of directors by Dr. Martin Haase, an experienced top manager in the high-tech industry.

“ELDICO has the opportunity to bring decisive new momentum to structural elucidation with a  highly innovative instrument concept. I look forward to working with the team of founders and trust that my many years of industrial experience in the field of highly complex, technically demanding analytical and imaging instrumentation will contribute to the company’s success”, says Dr. Martin Haase about his appointment according to a press release.

Haase, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, has many years of experience in the field of X-ray analysis. From 1994 to 2004 he was Managing Director of SIEMENS Röntgenanalytik and Bruker AXS, the world's leading supplier of X-ray diffractometers. He then held other management positions in industry, including as CEO of Heraeus Kulzer, the dental division of the precious metals and technology group Heraeus, and Managing Director of Leica Microsystems CMS. Today he is active as an investor and interim manager in the technology and health care sectors with several investments.

“A welcome addition to our board”, says Nils Gebhardt, chairman of the board

“Martin Haase is an experienced top manager with a long track record of operational success in the high-tech industry. As Managing Director of SIEMENS Röntgenanalytik, he played a major role in the sale of the division to Bruker and the subsequent IPO of Bruker AXS. He knows our market well and is very familiar with ELDICO's technology. With this experience he is a welcome addition to our board of directors and will be providing additional strategic impetus to ELDICO's corporate development”, Nils Gebhardt explains.

Martin Haase comes to the start-up bringing a wealth of experience in technically demanding analytical and imaging instrumentation. ELDICO is looking forward to the joint work.

ELDICO Scientific, The Electron Diffraction Company, is a Swiss hardware company founded 2019 and is located in Switzerland Innovation Park Innovaare at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), one of the world's leading research centers for natural and engineering sciences. ELDICO develops, produces and sells electron diffractometers for the analysis of solid compounds enabling industrial and scientific researchers to characterise hitherto unmeasurable nano-crystalline systems. So far conventional methods (X-ray) fail, because they require bigger crystal sizes, which are often difficult or even impossible to produce. With support of the Nano Argovia Programme and the Swiss Nanosience Insitute (SNI) the proof-of-concept was achieved in 2018 (ETH Zurich, C-CINA Basel) on scientifically and industrially relevant samples.
