ČEZ ESCO has completed the acquisition of Capexus, a Czech company engaged in the design, planning and implementation of modern and energy-efficient office space, as well as the revitalization of older commercial buildings. The merger of the two companies has already been approved by the Office for the Protection of Competition.  

Capexus has a team numbering more than 100 members and, like ČEZ ESCO, operates on the Czech and Slovak markets. The company’s total turnover on both markets in 2020 was approximately CZK 650 million.

“The same revolution is taking place in buildings that took place, for example, in cars,” said ČEZ ESCO CEO Kamil Čermák. “They are becoming sophisticated smart devices, where great emphasis is placed on air quality, lighting or the right temperature settings. The rules for their energy efficiency and climate footprint are also being tightened. Capexus will strengthen our Building Energy cluster and expand our portfolio with office building orders. Capexus will cooperate especially with our subsidiaries AZ KLIMA and HORMEN.”

In addition to industrial contracts, photovoltaics and cogeneration, building services engineering is a key sector for ČEZ ESCO. The company’s subsidiaries like AZ KLIMA, Domat Control System, ENESA, HORMEN, KART and AIR PLUS are all involved in it.

During its 10 years of existence, Capexus has transformed the working environment for more than 400 companies, including Avast, Jan Becher Pernod Ricard, DHL, T-Mobile, Siemens, UniCredit Bank, Vodafone and others.

“We are creating unique offices to help companies grow, but we too want further growth, which is why we have joined forces with ČEZ ESCO,” explains Daniel Matula, managing partner of Capexus. “We have already met some ČEZ ESCO subsidiaries on the market, and by working together, both parties will obtain other clients and interesting contracts. Energy-efficient buildings in connection with the latest trends in sustainable building technologies is a great opportunity for the future.”

ČEZ ESCO (Energy Service Company) is a ČEZ subsidiary that focuses on services related to modern energy, decarbonization and climate change reduction for industrial customers, municipalities and institutions. These include energy audits and energy consulting, construction and operation of cogeneration units, implementation of metering systems, renovation of heating systems and installation of photovoltaic power plants.
