Having an extensive product portfolio is just as important as a well-developed, international network – this is exactly what we are aiming for with the acquisition of French climate specialist Kalori SAS.
Being a system supplier for customized air-conditioning applications, we offer intelligent solutions all from a single source. With the acquisition of French air-conditioning specialist Kalori SAS, we are improving our existing range in the field of heating for special-purpose vehicles. For our customers and service partners, this means that our heating and cooling systems are covering even more ground. Our products for ideal thermal management can be combined in an individual system and controlled collectively. They are designed for a wide spectrum of power ratings and requirements, and range from pre-heaters, electric heaters and convection heaters to integrated and roof-mounted air-conditioning systems.
Kalori’s experience in HVAC development, application and production ideally complements Eberspächer’s existing portfolio: Whether it's hot outside or temperatures are below zero, we provide ideal temperatures in the driver's cab. Not only is this more comfortable, it's also more efficient: Drivers of machinery demonstrably perform better and are more alert in a cab with a pleasant climate. In addition, we help customers to comply with statutory workplace regulations, for example in special-purpose vehicles such as construction, agricultural or forestry machinery. If the available installation space prevents this, we can also provide special design components for each specific case. Our engine pre-heaters not only keep special-purpose vehicles ready for use at all times, even at sub-zero temperatures, but also achieve considerable cost savings by removing the need to keep the engine running (anti-idling). The immediate operational readiness of ambulance vehicles is particularly important. Here, we help to ensure that vehicles are at operating temperature when needed, and that the interior is always at the specified temperature for patients and rescue personnel. We provide the right climate for drivers and passengers in mini- and midibuses, and are also specialists in cooling and heating vans, enabling the safe transport of temperature-sensitive goods.
Eberspächer has a network that spans the globe. We distribute all the solutions in our extensive product portfolio of heating and cooling systems globally through our 19 subsidiaries and our extensive Eberspächer dealer and service network. Wherever you require Eberspächer's services, subsidiaries and highly specialized partner workshops worldwide provide fast and uncomplicated help, while offering competent experts for consultation in your immediate vicinity at all times. This is a clear advantage for our customers and service partners. It also furthers our strategy to become a world leader in thermal management solutions for special-purpose vehicles, with a strong market position.
