The European Commission has cleared the acquisition of Italian company, Eco, by the Finnish group, Luvata, subject to the divestment of one of Luvatas plants. Eco is an Italian manufacturer of heat exchange products such as coils, while Luvata is active in metal fabrication, component manufacturing and related engineering and design services. The Commissions investigation showed that the concentration would lead to competition problems in the coil market, due to the high market shares of the two companies and the structure of the market. Coils are systems which enable the transfer of heat from one fluid to another without mixing the two. They are used in air-conditioning and refrigeration systems. The Commission decided to clear the deal following a commitment by Luvata to divest the plant where most of its coil production takes place.
