Odewald KMU II invests in heizkurier GmbH – your mobile heating system

Heizkurier GmbH in Wachtberg rents and sells mobile heating systems to corporate customers in Germany, with the main focus on renting. Heizkurier was founded in 2007 and currently employs around 40 people. The portfolio of products that can be rented includes oil/gas heating systems, electric heating systems, fresh water modules, fan heaters, heating and hot water treatment systems and related accessories, serving the customers as a temporary source of heating and hot water supply. The heating systems are mainly used in emergency or special situations (e.g. in the event of a heating failure), for heating renovations, for screed drying and construction site heating, for generating process or industrial heating, for heating biogas plants or event heating. The customers mainly come from the areas of specialist sanitary/heating companies, construction, energy and real estate as well as from the event management sector. The systems are developed and built by Heizkurier and are rented and sold nationwide via a distribution network of currently five locations of its own. As a full-service provider, Heizkurier not only covers the production and delivery of mobile heating devices, but also advises customers on the selection of the right devices right up to the on-site connection.

The market for mobile heating systems is in a phase of growth and Heizkurier has already successfully developed a leading market position in a very profitable niche thanks to the quality of its products, a structured sales approach and comprehensive customer support.

In order to support further growth and to establish a successor solution, the managing partners, Ms. Britta Kaets and Mr. Martin Hecker, have entered into a partnership with the investment company Odewald KMU of Berlin, which specialises in high-growth small and medium-sized companies. To this end, Odewald SME has acquired a majority stake in Heizkurier. The founders continue to have a significant stake in the company. The joint goal of the shareholders is to achieve market leadership in Germany through organic and inorganic growth in the coming years and to open up markets in other European countries. The parties have agreed not to disclose the amount of the investment and other details of the holding.
