Investment AB Latour has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Swegon Group AB, acquired SLT Schanze Lufttechnik (SLT), a supplier of diffusers in Germany with the engineering capability to provide complex and customized solutions for its customers. The company was founded in 1985 and has 70 employees with head office and manufacturing located in Lingen, Germany. Net sales in 2019 amounted to EUR 10 m.
The acquisition strengthens Swegon’s portfolio within Room Unit products and increases Swegon’s position as one of the leading companies for indoor environment solutions.
“We are very happy to welcome SLT into the Swegon Group. SLT has an ability to think outside the box and provides top quality customized solutions with a focus on high indoor environmental quality. This acquisition gives Swegon a renowned and highly competent room units supplier in the largest ventilation market in Europe”, says Andreas Örje Wellstam, CEO at Swegon Group.
“SLT started out as a distributor of diffusers in Germany 35 years ago. At that time, we sold Swegon products. Since then, we have grown and developed our own product portfolio and manufacturing. Becoming a part of Swegon is like going back to our roots and I am confident that our customers will experience a very attractive combined offering”, says Joachim Schanze, founder of SLT.
