Amster­dam / Munich / Rosen­heim — Egeria acqui­res Isop­lus, a leading manu­fac­tu­rer of pre-insu­la­­ted pipe systems for district heating supply. Egeria, a family-owned, pan-Euro­­pean invest­ment company, will acquire 100% of the shares in Isop­lus, based in Germany. Isop­lus is a leading Euro­pean supplier of pre-insu­la­­ted pipe systems with an outstan­ding market posi­tion in the district heating supply sector. In the future, the exis­ting manage­ment will run the company as co-owners and imple­ment the growth stra­tegy toge­ther with Egeria. The acqui­si­tion is subject to custo­mary closing condi­ti­ons and is expec­ted to close in the first quar­ter of 2022. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose details of the transaction.

Isop­lus was foun­ded in 1974 and has become a leader in the Euro­pean district heating market. The company opera­tes 8 produc­tion sites, employs appro­xi­mately 1,200 people and is active in over 30 countries.

Isop­lus’ main market, district heating, is consi­de­red a key element in the tran­si­tion to CO2-neutral heat genera­tion. With many years of expe­ri­ence and a complete product port­fo­lio, as well as a broad Euro­pean market posi­tion, Isop­lus is excel­lently posi­tio­ned to bene­fit from this attrac­tive and dyna­mic market, which is driven by a clear need for the expan­sion of envi­ron­ment­ally friendly heat. Egeria’s invest­ment provi­des the company with the finan­cial backing and opera­tio­nal support to further acce­le­rate growth and deve­lop the company into a leading provi­der of sustainable, envi­ron­ment­ally friendly heating services throughout Europe.

Through conti­nuous entre­pre­neurs­hip, Isop­lus has estab­lis­hed a leading posi­tion in an attrac­tive market. The company is a great plat­form for future growth, and we want to further streng­t­hen its posi­tion as a leading provi­der of sustainable, envi­ron­ment­ally friendly heating solu­ti­ons. We look forward to working with manage­ment and suppor­ting the company in its next phase of growth.”

Wolf­gang Blum­schein, Roland Hirner and Jörg Kauschat, Isop­lus Manage­ment: “We are deligh­ted to have Egeria as a new main share­hol­der of Isop­lus. In recent years, we have conti­nuously deve­lo­ped Isop­lus into one of the market leaders for district heating pipes. We are convin­ced that Isop­lus is ready to acce­le­rate its growth as a provi­der of sustainable heating services and see Egeria as the ideal part­ner to realize the next phase of growth.”
