Arneg Kühlmöbel is one of the leading suppliers of cooling technology in Austria. In 2014, the revenue of Arneg Kühlmöbel was about EUR 7.0 million. The company employs about 35 people in the city of Leonding in Upper Austria.
“With this step Caverion broadens its regional position in offering cooling technology throughout planning, installation, service and maintenance.

“With Caverion, Arneg Kühlmöbel will be part of a well-established company for building solutions and in particular cooling technology in Austria. After my retirement in 2016, I know the company I established will be in good hands with sustainable prospects for the Leonding area,” says Alfred Lotter, the founding partner and Managing Director of Arneg Kühlmöbel.
The acquisition will not change the earlier communicated outlook for Caverion Group.
