Alder will partner with Centriair’s founders and management to continue the growth journey of the Company.
Centriair, founded in 2007, designs, develops and delivers airborne odour and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions abatement systems for process industries, resulting in lower concentrations of harmful gases and aerosols.

Centriair has a recent history of strong growth, increasing its revenues by an annual growth rate of 50% in the past six years. The growth is attributable to a competitive technology offering and growing demand based on changing customer preferences and stricter regulation.
Environmental sustainability is an important aspect of Centriair’s business model, offering solutions that help remove harmful aerosols and gases from process air, providing clean air within industrial processing environments and public spaces. The Company is headquartered in Sävedalen, Sweden, and has an annual turnover of ca. 100 MSEK with ca. 40 employees. Alder will provide capital, network and experience from other investments in related fields such as air filters and gas emissions analysis. Furthermore, Mats R Karlsson will join as Chairman providing considerable industrial and growth experience.
“Centriair is a company in an attractive market that has shown impressive growth in the past few years. Run by a highly competent and entrepreneurial team, the Company continuously aims to deliver a leading technology offering within its field. We look forward to working in unison with the founders, management and Board to continue the Company’s growth journey”
