About the company
Since the foundation of the company in 1921, the idea of quality has been in the foreground. Surgical instruments are manufactured with skilled craftsmanship by a qualified and long-standing workforce.
Despite the upcoming challenges in the medical technology sector, the third generation of the entrepreneurial family was able to position and develop the company for the future.
Sale 100% of the GmbH shares due to age-related succession of the shareholders.
KERN accompanied the process from the preparation of the sale, the search for the purchase candidates to the sales negotiations.
The task began with the preparation of the sale, followed by the search for purchase candidates as well as their screening and finally ended with the support of the sales negotiations, up to the successful conclusion of the purchase contract.
The entrepreneurial families were particularly concerned with continuing their life's work and, above all, securing the jobs of their long-serving employees.
After an intensive monitoring process that was repeatedly stalled by the ongoing pandemic, the project was successfully implemented.
