Shares of investing company Vela Technologies (LON: VELA) are rising on Friday after it noted the announcement of a partnership between Sprintex and Aeristech Limited. 

In February, Vela invested £350,000 into Aeristech as part of a £5.1 million pre-IPO funding round into the global tech firm.

The deal between Sprintex and Aeristech was announced earlier this week and will see Sprintex's penetration into the high-growth and lucrative hydrogen energy and clean air markets. In addition, Sprintex is establishing a new production and testing facility in China to produce several electrical compressor (eCompressor) platforms.

Aeristech's proprietary designs will form a component of these platforms for use in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

Sprintex recently opened a 1,500 sq metre manufacturing facility in the country.

“This strategic collaboration will stimulate the excellent synergy between the two companies on product development, global resources for supply chain and sales,” said Jay Upton, CEO of Sprintex.

Vela Technologies' share price has initially climbed over 2% following its note this morning. However, it is now trading at 0.838p, up 1.52%.
