Jacir announces the acquisition of the German company KTK Kühlturme Karlsruhe GmbH, via its holding company COFINAIR SAS.

This acquisition creates significant value for the COFINAIR group, already recognized by its JACIR and GOHL brands as a European leader in the supply of towers


German company KTK looks back on over 50 years of experience in developing and manufacturing cooling tower technologies. More than 10,000 cooling towers have been supplied to approx. 100 countries.

The KTK will join the existing group of JACIR and GOHL, now offering the most extensive range of technologies, applications and materials on the market. Every brand has been directly positioned for the market. The three companies are pooling their strengths to create synergies in development, product range and sales opportunities.

This new acquisition will strengthen the COFINAIR Group which is now becoming a major player in Europe in the field of evaporative cooling for the premium market. State of the art cooling systems supported by strong R&D will be the path to our future.


This acquisition opens up new opportunities in the field of research & development, enlargement of our product range and increased international sales. This demands new strategies and concepts to deliver attractive solutions which meet customer needs.

In my opinion, the customer comes first. To offer our customers the best solution with the highest customer values in the future, the support from the COFINAIR Group is helpful. Furthermore, it is our aspiration to deliver the best consulting services, price-performance-ratio and delivery reliability.

Karlheinz GEIGER, CEO of KTK Kühlturm Karlsruhe GmbH

Our strategies are based on many years of experience and the combined power of the capabilities and know-how within these organizations. Every single brand brings each one’s core capabilities into focus.

The integration of KTK into the COFINAIR Group allows us to combine our development and engineering capabilities. A new modular construction system allows us to fulfill our customers’ requirements.

Christoph KORINTH, CEO of Gohl

It is important to find the balance between flexibility, customer driven solutions and the advantages of serial production. A really exciting task.

KTK, GOHL and JACIR brands are already available on the international market through a common existing sales network.
