Apleona Buys German HVAC Specialist

Apleona has acquired the ventilation and air conditioning company Air for All, based in Gerlingen near Stuttgart.

Air for All’s existing management team will continue to run the company, which will become part of Apleona's Building Technology division: Apleona Wolfferts. The company’s sixty employees, including technicians and HVAC specialists, will also move over.

Air for All has specific expertise in facilities such as cleanrooms and laboratories for clients in the automotive and healthcare sectors. The deal means Apleona will be able to expand its range of technical systems and presence in the southwest region of Germany.

This comes after several other acquisitions in 2023 to secure Apleona’s position in key European FM markets, including a merger with FM provider Gegenbauer Group in July. 

The CEO of Apleona Wolfferts, Horst Kever, said: “Air for All is an established regional provider of ventilation and air conditioning technology in South-West Germany with an excellent reputation, an impressive customer base and highly qualified employees. Its team will optimally complement Apleona Wolfferts’ existing portfolio in the South-West and has the potential to make an important contribution to our growth in the region. With an eye to the future, I am also delighted that we will be able to serve our customers in other regions with innovative concepts and integrated solutions for cleanrooms and laboratories thanks to Air for All’s specialism in this area.”

The Air for All management team, which includes Manfred Ahrens, Steffen Eiting, Günter Kapfer, Stephan Kolland, Jürgen Walther, commented: “We have known Apleona Wolfferts for a number of years and appreciate its expertise as a proven building technology specialist. Apleona Wolfferts is the ideal platform for the continued development and growth of our company. It will provide the foundations for a successful future for our employees and the many customers we have in common.”
