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 have been leading 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 due to the personal support and space you and your company get at VADO.”Learn more
