Trainee to the M&A and Business Development Team of Centriair Holding



About Centriair

Centriair Holding is a clean tech company focusing on process gas treatment and is owned by the management and Alder, a private equity firm. We have achieved annual revenue growth of 54% during the past seven years, accelerated by a broadened product portfolio and expansion in Europe.


We are emerging as a technology leader in a large and rapidly growing market area suffering from limited innovation and fragmentation. We provide proprietary, technology leading solutions for energy efficient elimination of airborne emissions with proven environmental and economic benefits.


We have offices in Sweden, Germany and Norway. We work internationally and have references in Asia, Europe and North America, however most of our business is concentrated to Europe. We work across a broad range of industry sectors, including in the Food Processing, Biogas and Waste Processing industries.


The challenge

In 2021, the company brought in Alder, a Swedish private equity investor to further boost growth and build a larger structure. Here, acquisitions will play a very important role.

Climate change and air pollution are global issues threatening human health and life on earth. Pressure to deal with these problems is mounting. The market demand, which is already huge and growing, will grow even faster going forward. At the same time, on the supply side, we see very small, regional and specialized companies, addressing only a fraction of the market and struggling to grow.


Our aim is to acquire profitable companies within process gas treatment that shares our vision to provide technology leading solutions within their field. By building a larger and more diversified structure, combining organic growth with acquisitions we will establish a leading position in our field.
