NIBE Industrier AB reached an agreement to initially acquire 50% of the shares in the Swedish company Air-Site AB, which will be included in the NIBE Energy Systems business area.
Air-Site AB is located in Lindome just south of Gothenburg and was founded by the current management team in 2007. The business has expertise in the field of ventilation with several years of innovative thinking and qualitative product development behind them. The company has 14 employees, annual sales of about SEK 26 million and an operating margin of around 10%.
“We’ve been looking for a heat pump partner for a while now so we’re very pleased to have NIBE as a joint owner. Now we’ll be able to integrate heat pump technology into our ventilation units and develop the concept, especially for large buildings,” says Air-Site’s CEO and owner Tomas Nilsson, who will continue to lead the company.
“Air-Site’s entrepreneurship and technical competence is an excellent complement to our business, and at the same time we get off to a flying start in the area of ventilation," says Kjell Ekermo, Business Area Manager for NIBE Energy Systems.
“Through this acquisition NIBE will take another strategically important step towards integrating heating and cooling with ventilation,” says Gerteric Lindquist, MD/CEO of NIBE Industrier AB.
Air-Site AB will be consolidated in NIBE from 4 April 2016.
