Heyaru (India) diamonds in Flanders’ sky

In 2016, Heyaru Engineering opened a local venture in Lommel, Flanders to produce extremely hard and advanced materials for various industries. Two years later, the Indian company is announcing a EUR 26 million investment in this city. In the Kristalpark, which literally translates as ‘Crystal Park’, Heyaru will build a diamond factory and R&D center.


Foundations of a diamond ecosystem

It’s not by chance that Heyaru decided to expand its business in Lommel, being close to both the Port of Antwerp and Diepenbeek, where Hasselt University is currently exploring the use of synthetic diamonds in technological applications. In addition, Lommel will soon host a large solar energy park that will provide the large amount of electricity needed to process diamonds.

Other factors that compelled Heyaru to settle in Lommel are Flanders’ stable electricity grid, open economy, tax incentives for R&D activities and strategic location in the center of Western Europe.

Bling bling & high-tech

In the first phase, the company will focus on the production of diamonds for jewelry-making, thus becoming a new supplier of the renowned Antwerp diamond district. Over time, Heyaru’s services will extend to technological applications, such as quantum computers with diamond-integrated optomechanical circuits, which today constitute a research project in its early and experimental stages.
