Wicor Holding AG acquires Optocon AG

The Wicor Holding AG (Weidmann International Corporation) is pleased to announce its recent acquisition of Optocon AG, a leading producer of fiber optic technology and signal conditioners for temperature measurement.

Optocon has a more than 20 years history of providing innovative and technologically advanced solutions for a wide variety of industries. Weidmann has been at the heart of the global transformer industry for over 140 years, supplying a comprehensive range of specialized products, materials and services. In recent years, Weidmann embarked on an ambitious strategy to equip transformers with SmartInsulation™: embedding unique sensors directly inside the transformer. The acquisition of Optocon, as well as the redesign of the InsuLogix® T, takes us one step closer to realizing this mission.

Weidmann will continue the Optocon AG operations in Dresden, Germany, through a new legal entity: Weidmann Technologies Deutschland GmbH.

With the full backing of the Wicor Holding AG, we endeavour to provide high quality products, unique technical solutions and services, as well as an enhanced product portfolio in order to meet customer requirements in the future.
