System water quality specialist Spirotech is acquiring Austrian business EDER for its expertise in the field of pressurisation in HVAC installations.
The two family businesses have been working together for more than a decade and, as of January 1, all pressurisation activities and approximately 90 employees of EDER Heizung (service provision) and Anton EDER (production and sales) will become part of Spirotech.
Spirotech says the acquisition of EDER’s high-quality technology, knowledge and services for pressurisation means it will strengthen its range of solutions for improving system water quality. This will enable customers and partners in the HVAC sector to benefit through Spirotech’s global sales network.
EDER sales director Alfred Eder said: “We chose Spirotech based on our experiences during a decade of collaboration. Spirotech, like EDER, is a family business in which quality provision has been paramount for over 65 years and where the knowledge and experience of all employees is seen as an important distinguishing asset. This means that our employees will become part of a company with the same culture and values they are fully accustomed to.”
Hans Jacobs, chief operating officer for Spirotech, added: “Combining the knowledge and experience of Spirotech and EDER with innovation and the delivery of quality products and services enables us to provide future-proof solutions better and faster.
“The production of the Spirotech range will remain located in Helmond, in The Netherlands, and will be expanded here in the coming years so that we can continue to meet the expected market growth.
“In addition, we have already purchased additional land in Leisach in Austria to enable us to expand our production capacity for the expected increase in demand for pressurisation products.”
