Assemblin acquires Kylkompanjon
Assemblin Ventilation has acquired the company Kylkompanjon AB and will take over the business and its employees with effect from 1 May.
“This acquisition enhances our customer offering in Östergötland through the addition of valuable expertise within cooling systems,” says Peter Hjertström, Branch Manager for Assemblin Ventilation.
Kylkompanjonen was established five years ago and has since become a strong player within cooling installations in Östergötland. Last year, founders and joint owners Christer Hjert and Ulf Ingvarsson received the Enterprise of the Year Award in Söderköping, where the company is based. The company installs cooling systems and provides cooling services in most types of buildings, particularly retail premises.
– “The acquisition of Kylkompanjon will boost our expertise within cooling systems. We can now offer our customers in the region attractive turnkey solutions within ventilation and cooling systems,” says Peter Hjertström.
An increasingly important segment
– “Cooling is a segment that is set to grow in importance. Demand for high-quality comfort cooling solutions is on the up, and certain coolants in existing systems will also have to be replaced by 2020 as a result of regulatory changes,” says Peter Hjertström.
From 1 May, the staff and both joint owners of Kylkompanjon will become part of Assemblin Ventilation in Linköping and Norrköping. Existing business agreements will transfer to Assemblin, and Christer Hjert will become head of the cooling department within Assemblin Ventilation in Östergötland.
– “For those of us in Kylkompanjon, this is yet another step to developing both as a business and individuals. It feels good to become part of Assemblin - a modern and well-structured company and a leader within installations.
Together, we can benefit from each other’s contacts and knowledge, and continue to grow here in Östergötland,” says Christer Hjert.
