Carrier Global Corporation has announced that it has completed its acquisition of Viessmann Climate Solutions from the Viessmann Group.
A statement said that the transaction marks another step forward in Carrier’s portfolio transformation, further strengthening the company’s global leadership position in intelligent climate and energy solutions.
Thomas Heim, who previously led Viessmann Climate Solutions, will lead Carrier RLC HVAC in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which includes Viessmann Climate Solutions and Carrier’s RLC business in the region, including Riello.
David Gitlin, Carrier’s chair and CEO, said: “The combination with Viessmann Climate Solutions creates the most comprehensive and differentiated suite of sustainable climate technologies and services in the industry today.
“The transaction, together with the planned exits of our Fire & Security and Commercial Refrigeration businesses, will transform Carrier’s business into a higher growth business with a clear focus and mandate on global leadership in intelligent climate and energy solutions.”
Max Viessmann, CEO of Viessmann Group, joins Carrier’s Board of Directors. He added: “I look forward to working closely with Dave and his leadership team as well as my fellow board directors, to build a future-proof, truly global, climate champion.
“I could not be more excited about this combination, which lays the perfect basis to capture growth opportunities and maximize impact for generations to come.”
