Oppenhoff & Partner advises Vaillant Group on its acquisition of Cogenon
The Remscheid-based heating, ventilation and air-conditioning specialist Vaillant Group on 2 May 2012 acquired the Hamburg manufacturer Cogenon, which specialises in the manufacturing of combined heat and power systems for larger properties. With this acquisition, the Vaillant Group is further expanding its business in energy-efficient and environment-friendly combined heat and power plants and, as the sole supplier, offers the entire power spectrum for decentral combined heat and power for properties ranging from single-family homes to commercial premises.
An Oppenhoff & Partner team, led by M&A partner Myriam Schilling, advised the Vaillant Group on this transaction. Further team members were Anna v. Girsewald (M&A/corporate law), Dr. Christoph Poertzgen, Dr. Marc Häger (both commercial) and Jörn Kuhn (employment law).
