AAF International expands in Germany with acquisition of RIS Facility Management

AAF International affiliate AAF Lufttechnik GmbH has acquired RIS Facility Management GmbH, a provider of indoor air quality services in Germany.

Headquartered in Eppingen, Germany, RIS provides HVAC inspections, process technology, repairs and maintenance to a range of industries for both supply and exhaust air. The family-owned company has around 100 qualified employees who provide consultancy and service for clean air related process security and value retention of equipment and buildings.

 “Both of our companies’ philosophies are dedicated to ‘Bringing Clean Air to Life’ TM, which is an excellent fit for a new partnership,” said AAF International CEO Philip Whitaker. “Since 2006, RIS has successfully built up their business from zero to now serving the biggest brands in the automotive industry. With this new partnership we are now looking forward to further expand this great track record.”

“This acquisition will immediately help us to meet our customers’ demand for value-added air filtration solutions in Germany,” said Stefan Berbner, AAF International’s chief operating officer in Europe. “In addition, we are now strategically positioned to expand our idea of a true one-stop-shop across all of Europe.”

“We are looking forward to join forces with the AAF team and combine AAF’s high quality product portfolio and unique intelligent data tools with our service offerings,” said Mehmet Tiftikci, management director of RIS.
