Momenta Leads Investment in SprayVision

Momenta leads Series A investment round in SprayVision, revolutionizing industrial coating operations.

 

Momenta, the leading Industrial Impact® venture capital firm, has led the Series A investment round in SprayVision, an Ostrava, Czechia-based leader in process control and simulation of paint coating operations. Momenta invested along with the participation of J&T Ventures. This strategic funding will accelerate the company’s global operations, creating an even greater industrial impact.

 

SprayVision’s intelligent coating solution enables dynamic process control and optimization of paint lines. Their innovation significantly reduces time, scrap, paint waste, and emissions. With a simulation prediction accuracy of over 98%, SprayVision empowers customers to accelerate the transition from automation to autonomous operations. The company’s solutions support customers from digitizing manual processes to enhancing automation environments where human-robot collaboration is integrated into fully autonomous operations.

 

Petr Jahn, Co-founder and CEO of SprayVision, remarked, “We are excited to partner with Momenta, a venture capital investor that deeply understands our industrial customers and their pain points. We look forward to their practical support as we expand into North America and fully penetrate the European Automotive market. We still have a lot of work to do.”

 

“We believe our investment in SprayVision is pivotal in accelerating the shift toward autonomy in manufacturing and bridging the expertise gaps within the labor force, “said Miroslav Kriz, Venture Partner at Momenta. “These factors are vital amid the growing resurgence and reshoring of manufacturing in the Americas and Europe.”

 

This is the seventeenth company to receive investment from Momenta's Digital Industry Fund III, anchored by Advantech, the global leader in digital industrial solutions. This also marks the fourth company to receive investment from Momenta's Digital Industry Fund IV. The funding will boost Spray Vision's growth and innovation, solidifying the company's role in the digital transformation of coating operations.
