CCC Holdings Europe receives €18m investment

Greg Deldicque: “on our way to creating a company with over €200m in revenues”

ITALY: CCC Holdings Europe, which purchased CO2 refrigeration company Enex and heat exchanger manufacturer Roen Est earlier this year, has received €18m from the Italian Energy Efficiency Fund II (IEEF II). 

Formed by former Carrier management personnel in 2018 with the intention of investing in the HVAC and refrigeration market, CCC Holdings Europe acquired both Roen Est and Enex Srl in February. 

Commenting on the new investment, Greg Deldicque, chairman and CEO of CCCHE, said: “We are honoured to welcome such a prestigious institutional investor as one of our shareholders, alongside our original investors Italmobiliare SpA, and Luca and Alberto Pretto.”

Deldicque added that the company was now well positioned to finalise its equity commitment target of €75m-€100m by early 2021. “This capital increase allows us to execute actions planned to significantly grow the two companies we have already acquired, as well as execute our next acquisition, on our way to creating a company with over €200m in revenues.”

Andrea Marano, a founder and Co-CEO of IEEF II fund management company Fondo Italiano per l’Efficienza Energetica SGR, said: “CCCHE first two companies, Enex Srl and Roen Est SpA, have energy-efficiency leading technologies in key products such as refrigeration racks, air conditioning chillers, heat pumps and heat exchangers. Helping them grow will have significant impact on Europe’s CO2 footprint.”

CCCHE makes control investments in middle-market European HVACR companies with revenues between €10m and €150m. It is said to be in advanced conversations with several other potential acquisitions.
