Exclusive Financial Advisor to the Suter Group

Exclusive Financial Advisor to the owners of Suter Group on the successful sale to Heizkurier Group


On 29 September 2023, the two companies Suter Gruppe AG (Suter Group) and Heizkurier Group (Heizkurier) announced a transaction. The German company Heizkurier (owned by NH130 Beteiligungs GmbH) takes over the Swiss pellet pioneer Suter Group and positions itself as market leader for equipment-as-a-service of mobile heating solutions in the DACH region. Both companies distinguish themselves to customers through highest service quality and availability and enjoy a high demand. The combined group benefits from significant synergies from the innovative pellet technology of the Suter Group as well as the extensive market access of Heizkurier in the DACH region. This creates an ideal starting position to benefit from the megatrend towards energy renovation in the building sector (“bridging to green”). In addition, other relevant application areas exist in construction heating and drying, industrial heating, agriculture, emergencies and events. The existing management and the founders of the Suter Group participate in the merger.
