Duly note, in early 2007 the Tognum Group (Friedrichshafen Tognum GmbH), headquartered in Friedrichshafen, Germany, acquired the Katolight Corp.

We believe the acquisition will propel the Katolight Generator line to even a higher standard.

Says, Volker Heuer, the CEO of Tognum, “With the acquisition of Katolight Generators, we have passed another milestone on our track to become a globally leading provider of decentralized power generators… Katolight is a perfect element in our growth strategy, because it is a well-positioned brand and an excellent supplement to our product range in the important and further growing North American market.
