Heyaru Engineering will start building its factory in Lommel. In the first three years they will focus on juwelry diamond. The next step is to explore diamond applications in electronic applications.

“In the longer term, the ambition is to work together with IMO-IMOMEC to investigate the possibilities of synthetic diamond for quantum computers and sensors. One of the reasons why we come to Lommel is indeed the diamond research at IMO-IMOMEC (UHasselt).” says Vikram Shah (Herayu Engineering).

Heyaru and Bronkhorst join forces in the production of diamonds

Heyaru Engineering, manufacturer of laboratory grown diamonds, plans for a multimillion Euro investment in Lommel, Belgium for which they have received STS support from the Flemish government.

A couple of months back Heyaru created their first Belgium grown diamond. Once the complete project is installed (in about 5 years) Heyaru will be able to produce about 200 Kilos of Laboratory grown diamonds per year. The company will be the largest diamond grower in Europe.

For reaching to that amount of production quantities, Heyaru will need couple of hundred of reactors. Bronkhorst High-Tech, with its headquarters based in The Netherlands, have entered into a relationship with the Bulgarian partner of Heyaru, supplying state of the art, plug & perform gas flow controllers for the fully automated reactors.

Bronkhorst will play a crucial role in designing, building & implementing the flow controllers to increase reliability, improve yield, and enhance safety of Heyaru’s employees and the process. By joining forces with Bronkhorst, one can say that Heyaru generates indirect employment in The Netherlands.

Focus On Belgium

In the Flemish town of Lommel, Heyaru Engineering has started the production of authentic Belgian synthetic diamonds, also called laboratory diamonds.

Today, synthetic diamonds already represent 2% of the jewellery market and celebrities such as Lady Gaga have already been noticed with them. As it happens, because diamond conducts electricity well, the company is thinking of using it for other purposes as well, especially for energy applications or in super-powerful computers. Over the next ten years, Heyaru will invest more than 200 million euros in additional diamond furnaces in order to increase the production capacity to approximately 200,000 kilos per year.

The Indian company Heyaru Engineering wants to expand its site in the Lommel Kristalpark in five to ten years into the largest diamond factory in Europe, with 120 to 150 employees.

The Indian company Heyaru Engineering is investing 26 million euros in a company that will make synthetic diamonds in Lommel. Flanders supports the investment with 2 million euros. This was announced by Flemish Minister of Economy Philippe Muyters (N-VA) this weekend. Heyaru has the ambition to expand its site in Lommel over the next five to ten years into the largest ‘diamond factory’ in Europe. An investment of 262 million euros, good for 120 to 150 employees in the long term. The proximity of Antwerp, where all the diamond expertise is, almost certainly played a part in the decision of the Indians.

2 million euros in aid for synthetic diamond production at Heyaru in Lommel.

On the proposal of the Flemish minister Muyters, the Flemish government grants 2 million euros in aid to Heyaru Engineering NV. The company wants to develop synthetic diamonds in Lommel.

The synthetic diamond industry is still quite young and even completely new in Flanders. However, synthetic diamonds are used for more and more applications. Only 2% of natural diamonds have the necessary hardness to be used in industrial and technological applications such as optics, telecommunications or energy. Synthetic diamond therefore fills an important gap there. The limited number of suppliers active today cannot meet current demand and the global market is expected to grow by as much as 82% in the period 2016-2025.

Flanders Today

€2 million support for synthetic diamond production

“Heyaru, which is now producing synthetic diamonds on a small scale in India, is aiming to open the first such plant in Europe in Lommel,” Muyters said in a press release. “The production facility will become the group’s central hub for production and for research into new techniques and applications. The company is investing more than €24 million. For such an important development, the Flemish government is contributing €2 million.”

The first phase will see approximately 15 jobs created. Heyaru aims to grow into a facility with hundreds of reactors and 120 to 150 employees within the next five to 10 years.

“The investment in Heyaru not only brings with it new jobs; the company also wants to contribute to the expansion of a Flemish knowledge cluster based on synthetic diamonds,” Muyters said. “An important part of the project is the establishment of its own research and development centre, working with Flemish knowledge institutions. Heyaru’s presence will provide important pulling power for other businesses – something that’s good for the future of the Flemish economy.”
