    Parcom and Gimv reach agreement on the acquisition of Climate for Life

    Parcom has reached agreement with Gimv on the acquisition of Climate for Life, a frontrunner in the market for healthy and energy efficient HVAC indoor climate solutions. Parcom will support management with their continued value creation by focusing on the large opportunity in the energy transition of the residential building market.

    Today, Climate for Life has a leading position in the Dutch new build and renovation market and is, driven by its ambition for energy neutral living, leading the market in for instance water-to-water heat pumps and ventilation. Climate for Life has ambitious plans to expand its role in the energy transition, for which it will need to make significant investments.

    Bas Korte, CEO of Climate for Life: “Parcom is an investor who not only fully supports our ambitions, but is known as highly committed to helping Dutch companies in achieving their next phase of growth. Since we will be making significant investments, we will continue to be able to bring differentiating products, systems and concepts to market. This is the only way to realize our ambition. Parcom’s Dutch heritage is a true advantage as they understand the dynamics and opportunities surrounding the energy transition in the Dutch housing market. This is an excellent fit with our growth trajectory, namely to continue to strengthen our market leadership within sustainable indoor climate solutions in the Benelux market.”

    Willem-Jan Merckel, Partner at Parcom: “With its differentiating and market leading product offering, Climate for Life actively contributes to making the Dutch housing market more sustainable. This market is moving and we strongly believe in the many growth opportunities ahead for Climate for Life. We are looking forward to actively support the dedicated management team in the continued realization of their ambitions.”
