Established in Wasserburg near Munich in 1964 by Hans Busch, Thermomess, has always placed the customer at the centre. By focusing on quality and being a reliable one-stop service to its customers, the family-owned business has developed into an innovative, leading medium-sized company in the heating servicer sector that caters for more than 220,000 individual apartments throughout Germany. The company goes beyond the mere billing and rental of equipment to provide support in problematic situations, supporting its customers to comply with increasingly stringent legal requirements and reporting obligations.

“Our decentralised local structure allows us to remain in close contact to our customers providing individual care and a tailored approach to their needs. By joining the Officium family, we will be able to create even more added value for our customers expanding our offering and reach”, says Michael Busch, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Thermomess, who manages the company along with board members Stephan and Max Busch.

Officium’s Managing Director, Stephan Kiermeyer, added: “We are delighted to welcome Thermomess onboard. The acquisition continues to expand our presence, especially in Bavaria, Baden-Wurttemberg, but also in Rhineland Palatinate, Saarland, Hamburg and expand the Officium platform to over 530,000 homes and more than 3.4 million measuring devices. Our regional structure makes us an ideal partner for our customers across Germany. Additionally, in tandem with our subsidiary Einhundert, we can now offer not only the classic submetering service but also photovoltaic systems, tenant energy, competitive metering point operation and much more.”

Stefano Brugnolo, Partner at Arcus Infrastructure Partners LLP, and board member of Officium said: “It is a privilege for Officium to become the partner of choice for Thermomess, a business with a 60-year-long history and such a strong reputation in the market. This new partnership sets a key milestone in the creation of a leading platform to support the decarbonisation of the German real estate market.“
