Participation in start-ups is a good opportunity for established industrial companies to invest in promising developments and business models without having to build up their own capacities. Buying” external know-how and expertise is often more efficient, easier and quicker than acquiring it “with onboard resources”. The participation of the Oldenburg chemical company BÜFA in the start-up InProSens should probably be seen against this background.

Innovative process sensors for substance and material analysis
InProSens – for “Innovative Process Sensors” – is a young company founded in 2018 from the University of Oldenburg. The company develops intelligent sensors for process analysis in the field of liquids and solids as well as for material analysis. The sensor systems offer a simple, fast and reliable way of quality assurance and quality control in industrial processes. They can be used in a wide range of applications – for example in the textile industry, in leather production or in the plastics industry. BÜFA is particularly interested in the InProSens near-infrared sensor NIRScreen for the identification of textile materials and for the analysis of textile soiling – a good addition to the BÜFA range of products in the Cleaning Systems business area.
BÜFA is a traditional Oldenburg company that was founded in 1883. Under the roof of the company holding BÜFA GmbH & Co. KG, three main subsidiaries – BÜFA Chemikalien GmbH & Co. KG, BÜFA Cleaning Systems GmbH & Co. KG and BÜFA Composite Systems GmbH & Co. KG – operate in the business areas Chemicals (chemicals), Cleaning (cleaning systems) and Composites (composite materials). The BÜFA Group employs over 500 people and achieves an annual turnover of more than 250 million euros. The Group is thus a typical representative of Germany’s medium-sized industrial companies and has been able to maintain its independence from large chemical corporations to this day.
