VADO investment rationale
Culobel supplies a number of essential components in systems for air conditioning, compressed air and heat pumps. These markets are growing. Culobel is a Tier 1 supplier to the major manufacturers in these markets, who increasingly outsource more parts to Culobel and concentrate on assembly themselves.
“Culobel has been part of the VADO family for nearly 30 years. That in itself is unique! I myself have been at the head of Culobel for 25 years and have always enjoyed working for VADO. The no-nonsense entrepreneurial mentality greatly appeals to me. Culobel has grown strongly over the past 20 years, and this was only possible because of the personal support and space you get with your company at VADO.”Learn more
