Halder expanded Aqua Vital by focusing on the point-of-use water dispenser business via new customer wins. Besides organic growth, three add-ons were made, two of them in Germany. With the acquisition of Kalimba, Aqua Vital expanded into the Benelux market, while further internationalization was achieved by opening a new Austrian subsidiary.
In addition, the unique IT-supported tele sales capacities were strengthened alongside the well-established logistics network and an expanded technical service department.
During our holding period, sales more than doubled, the customer base grew by 50% and Aqua Vital increased its international presence. In 2018 Aqua Vital was sold to Culligan International, US, an international leader in water treatment solutions.
