We tap into growth potential
Our investments grow with us
We make targeted investments to strengthen the Viessmann Group and offer companies the opportunity to grow in parallel with us. With our portfolio companies, we expand the product range and branch into new regions and markets. Our acquisitions support our goal of diversifying the Group in a sustainable manner and transforming it into a global provider of climate solutions.
We build up our portfolio companies
We target family-run companies within the global heating, cooling, and ventilation market for our acquisitions. Our target markets are in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. We invest in companies with a very flexible mandate. Depending on the situation, we can have a long-term involvement in companies either through minority or majority shareholdings.
Viessmann Investment offers medium-sized companies a professional framework in which to grow together. After being invested in, the companies continue to operate independently and can thus hold onto their success factors, such as their specific corporate culture, brand, and management. We also support our portfolio companies actively, and build them up in a targeted way by using Viessmann’s expertise in purchasing, production, and sales.
Our newly established Investment business area has been active since 2019. Led by Managing Director Timo Tauber, it is made up of a Deal team and an Operations team. The Deal team searches for and identifies strategic investments to then close on. It also provides transaction services to other business areas. The Operations team works on behalf of the shareholders and is dedicated to the operational management of the portfolio companies.
Viessmann Investment portfolio
The Viessmann Investment portfolio currently comprises twelve shareholdings with which we jointly create value for our customers. With a total of around 3000 employees, we generate a total turnover of approx. 480 million euros. These not only strengthen our range of products and services for our customers, but also our international presence – from Finland, to the UK, South Africa and Australia.
