Purmo Group signs an agreement to acquire majority share of a Bosch Thermotechnology radiator factory in Russia
Tomasz Tarabura, Vice President for the Radiators Division of Purmo Group, says:
This joint venture with Bosch, a leading global technology supplier, will bring us closer to our vision of being the leader in sustainable indoor climate comfort. It enhances our leading position in the Russian market and makes it possible for us to serve our local customers even better than before. We are very enthusiastic about this opportunity and look forward to developing the activities in Russia together with Bosch.
Hansjürgen Overstolz, President of Bosch in Russia, adds:
We look forward to further developing the factory together with Purmo Group, a well-known manufacturer of radiators. Therefore, we expect a significant increase of the output of the factory and also more jobs available in future.
The factory was established in 2014 for the production of radiators for the Russian market and currently has approximately 110 employees.
The completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions such as merger control clearance from authorities in some countries. At this stage, it is envisaged that Purmo Group is able to deliver radiators to its customers from the new factory in Engels, Russia, from the second quarter of 2021, onwards. The new factory will be included in the Radiators division of Purmo Group.
