Envirotainer is a leading global provider of temperature-controlled air cargo containers.
Headquartered in Stockholm, Envirotainer designs, manufactures and leases active temperature-controlled containers used primarily for air freighting biopharma products, transporting up to two million doses of medicine per day. Envirotainer serves around 600 pharmaceutical companies worldwide, including many of the blue-chip global biopharma companies and operates from regional centres in Stockholm, Frankfurt, Dallas and Singapore, with a portfolio of around 5,800 leased containers globally.
With around 300 employees, Envirotainer developed and marketed the first container with an active temperature control system in 1995 and, since then, has significantly invested in its technology and container fleet.
Cinven’s Sixth Fund originally acquired a controlling interest in the business in September 2018 and then successfully sold the company in June 2022, but chose to reinvest for a 10% minority stake alongside the new majority shareholders. During Cinven’s majority ownership EBITDA grew organically ~50%.
