IMAP advised the shareholders of WSH Wurzinger Group, an installation and maintenance company for technical building equipment with focus on refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation, on the sale to Kaelte Eckert Group, a portfolio company of the financial investor Triton. With this transaction, the Wurzinger family resolved the succession of founder Guenter Wurzinger and found an ideal partner to continue his life's work.
