Acquired in

KÖHL s.à r.l.

The success story of KÖHL Group began over 40 years ago in Trier, Germany, when Edith and Wilfried Köhl founded their electrical company in 1971. Today, KÖHL s.à r.l. is headquartered in Wecker, Luxembourg and employs around 100 highly skilled individuals responsible for the company's continued growth and success. They are dedicated to developing cutting-edge solutions that keep them ahead of the competition in the market.
KÖHL s.à r.l.


In January 2022, Adeleon expanded its portfolio by acquiring KÖHL s.à r.l., a Luxembourg-based electrical company founded in 1971. KÖHL specialises in power distribution solutions in switchgear and primarily supplies data centres, large chemical plants, the energy industry and the renewable energy sector. With decades of experience, an adaptable, customer-oriented approach and continuous innovation, KÖHL has built a strong market position. With customers, renowned partner companies such as Bayer, Bosch and Shell, as well as suppliers worldwide, the company maintains long-term and successful relationships in order to jointly pursue the megatrends of automation and Industry 4.0.

"We are pleased to have found such a good strategic partner as Adeleon, which will continue to carry on, positively complement and expand KÖHL's values in the future. For us, a decisive criterion in the sales process was that two family-owned companies can exchange and complement each other at eye level and that, in addition to the company's goals, the employees will continue to have an absolutely high priority as the most important asset. Based on the very positive experience in the first transaction, we directly agreed to a second sale of another part of the company and would repeat this step today without reservation!"
