When ambition meets ambition

Gimv is investing to enable Coolworld to realize its growth ambitions: expanding its activities in its current home markets, broadening its portfolio of energy-efficient, sustainable solutions, and further increasing its operating efficiency. This process can include buy-and-build in existing and new markets.
