Success story: Naser Khaliqyar – Chances with Picosens

Our story about Naser from Kabul / Afghanistan, who lives in Bühl today, is a real success story. Naser had no chance to finish his education due to the war in Afghanistan and came to Germany in 2016.

In November 2016, we were asked to give the young man, who has learned German very well within a very short time, a chance to complete an internship, and to complete his extra-occupational school in Rastatt.

After we got to know Naser, we quickly decided that we would like to support him. “That was an important step for me and I am very happy that it worked out,” says Naser today. Naser learned to carry out measurements, to carry out analysis of sample parts and to undertake smaller experimental setups. As Naser convinced us very quickly with his competent, friendly and open manner, we have now taken Naser on after his successfully completed occupational school and his internship with us.

“I appreciate Picosens very much, that I can contribute with my ideas and that I can develop like this.”

-Naser Khaliqyar, Laboratory Assistent-



Future ideas for today

Our passion for research and our pioneering spirit goes back to our founder Gerd Reime, who produced his first inventions during his apprenticeship. He started as an apprentice at Grundig, his ingenuity was quickly recognized by company founder Max Grundig. In gratitude for a significant improvement in video recorders, he had him trained as a “lateral thinker and inventor” in various disciplines.

After the death of Max Grundig Gerd Reime moved to the company Nokia, who had just entered the entertainment industry. One of his then outstanding inventions (ASO) brought the video recorders, with which Nokia broke new ground with at that time, in terms of image quality to the best in the world within two years.

During the early era of mobile phones, he led the R & D department for Advanced Products and explored future technologies with his team. Despite many offers to switch to the research areas of well-known companies, Gerd Reime ventured in 1994 into self-employment. With the invention of the HALIOS technology (automotive rain sensor), the foundation was laid for the later founding of the Picosens.

For many years he has motivated, supported and encouraged young and talented employees to think laterally and to invent. The success of this can be seen in our new technologies and unusual products.
