In 2018, CAREL INDUSTRIES S.p.A. acquires 100% of HygroMatik GmbH, a major German player in the humidification sector.
The company is based in Henstedt-Ulzburg, near Hamburg. It designs, produces and markets humidifiers and related accessories, in the industrial, commercial and wellness field.
Through the merger, CAREL strengthens its activities in the humidification segment and offers HygroMatik a mature control concept with trend-setting technology for the IoT (Internet of Things).
Indeed, integration with HygroMatik consolidates CAREL's positioning in German-speaking countries and in northern Europe thanks to the strong penetration of the acquired company in these markets and allows for a better positioning in the context of different applications, leveraging the strength of the brand, the industrial excellence and specialised expertise in the field of humidification of one of the main players in the sector.
HygroMatik was founded in 1970 by Rolf Meier and Ullrich Hoehler with the name "Lufttechnischer Apparatebau". It changes its name in 1977 and, in 1988, becomes part of the SpiraxSarco Group.
Right from the foundation of the company, success and continuous growth are part of the tradition of user-oriented thinking. Continuous development and improvement of new and existing products, plus the cost, service and waste saving concept form the basis for the company’s success.
