NORD Holding acquires Heizkurier
NORD Holding acquires a majority stake in Heizkurier Group, which is based in Wachtberg, from Odewald KMU. The existing management and the founders will also remain involved in the company. Together with the existing management, Heizkurier aims to further expand its leading market position and to continue its dynamic growth of recent years. In addition, the company's significant ESG potential – in particular through its contribution to achieving climate neutrality in the building sector – is to be further focused in line with NORD Holding's ESG objectives.
Heizkurier is a leading Equipment-as-a-Service (EaaS) provider of mobile heating and cooling solutions. With its extensive and modern equipment, Heizkurier supplies its customers quickly and reliably with individual solutions for heat, hot water, warm air and cold. The company has been able to achieve dynamic growth in recent years, which is to be continued driven by sustainable trends such as climate neutrality in the building sector, new construction requirements in the residential segment and challenges related to increasing temperature extremes. Above all, the megatrend of energy-efficient building renovation is expected to be a further growth driver.
"We are enthusiastic about the agile growth and the leading market position of the company and look forward to supporting Mr. Pehlke and Mr. Heer in their innovative growth course," says Philipp von Mitzlaff, Partner at NORD Holding. Maximilian Frey, Investment Manager at NORD Holding, adds: "We see various positive trends in the relevant market environment for Heizkurier and the company is ideally positioned to benefit from these. "
Marc Pehlke and Stefan Heer, CEOs of the Heizkurier Group: "Our mobile heating and cooling centres offer our customers flexible and efficient product and service solutions in the field of energy-efficient building renovation. Our growth strategy in the DACH region therefore focuses on the availability of a modern rental fleet. With NORD Holding, we have gained a renowned and financially strong partner who not only actively supports us in the context of our further growth investments but is also available to us as an entrepreneur with its experience as a strategic sparring partner."
The investment was carried out by Nord Holding's Smart Industries & Business Services team and underlines its sector competence in the field of heating and cooling technology.
On the part of NORD Holding, the transaction was implemented by Philipp von Mitzlaff, Maximilian Frey and Marcel Rosengarten.
Since 2007, Heizkurier has established itself as a leading rental and sales provider of mobile heating and cooling solutions. With the acquisition of HDS Energielösungen GmbH, which specializes in cooling solutions, in 2018 and the Austrian energy4rent GmbH in 2020, the company's solution portfolio and regional coverage were successively expanded. To address the wholesale segment, the Energiebringer brand was also created in 2021.
The company's rental fleet currently comprises more than 700 mobile heating and cooling centres with outputs ranging from 10 kW to 5.000 kW. All Heizkurier units are "Made in Germany" and are manufactured on the basis of many years of experience and with the highest quality requirements. The offer is supplemented by services such as consulting, planning, delivery, technical emergency service and device return.
A special field of application is the bridging of heating during the energetic renovation of buildings, where Heizkurier can make a significant contribution to saving CO2 emissions in the building sector with their solutions.
Other important areas of application include construction heating and screed drying, bridging of emergencies, expansion and maintenance of district heating networks, industrial applications and events. With its intelligent solutions for construction heating, the company creates the opportunity for higher capacity utilization even in the cold months in order to counter the urgent problem of the shortage of skilled workers in Germany.
Heizkurier Group employs around 110 people at its headquarters in Wachtberg and at its 13 service and sales locations across Germany and Austria.
