Why we backed them

  • To support the company’s value proposition as a one-stop shop for HVACR components and further differentiate DiversiTech as the market leader (more than twice the size of the next largest competitor today)
  • To benefit from a resilient business model with underlying demand largely driven by recurring replacement, repair and maintenance of a large and growing installed base of 87+ million HVACR units in the U.S.
  • To back a strong management team that is well known to the Permira team (COO and CFO of DiversiTech were former senior executives of Arysta LifeScience, a former Permira IV portfolio company)

The investment strategy

  • To build wallet share with existing customers and improve the overall offering through product expansion and M&A
  • To optimise supply chain and distribution through procurement savings and operational improvements
  • To drive improved decision making through enhanced business intelligence capabilities, leveraging product and customer-level data and analytics
