S&B Strategy advises HomeServe Germany on the acquisition of Eckel Wasser-Wärme-Energie

Our team advised HomeServe Deutschland, a portfolio company of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners, on the acquisition of Eckel GmbH Wasser-Wärme-Energie. The transaction was signed in June 2023.

HomeServe is one of the leading HVAC trade groups with a focus on private end customers and residential construction. With a presence in eight countries and a total of around 9,000 employees, HomeServe focuses on actively strengthening trade companies in the respective regions by bundling central functions. This allows the companies to concentrate on consulting, installation and service in the HVAC and electrical trades. With this acquisition, HomeServe is expanding its presence in the greater Oldenburg area.

Eckel, an established HVAC company with over 30 employees, specialises in plumbing, heating and air conditioning installations and maintenance services with a strong focus on end customers. The acquisition of Eckel by HomeServe secures the long-term succession of the company and enables the further expansion of high-quality services in the Oldenburg area.

Our team supported HomeServe comprehensively as lead M&A advisor during the entire acquisition process up to the successful signing as well as with an operational due diligence.
