Schauenburg International Acquires majority share in Engmatec.
SCHAUENBURG INTERNATIONAL acquired majority share in the automation expert ENGMATEC
Mülheim a.d. Ruhr / Radolfzell, 28 August 2019
The SCHAUENBURG INTERNATIONAL Group acquired the majority share in the automation specialist ENGMATEC based in Radolfzell (Lake Constance) and thus expanded its portfolio in the engineering field. The holding company in Mülheim with a long-standing tradition thus came out on top of the search for a successor. “We are happy to welcome ENGMATEC to SCHAUENBURG INTERNATIONAL. Not only is ENGMATEC a well-managed company, it is also future-oriented: strong in innovation and technological development and experienced in the development of individual solutions for various key accounts and industries,” says Florian G. Schauenburg, CEO of SCHAUENBURG INTERNATIONAL.
25 years after the company was established: successor found
A top priority for the company’s founders, Josef and Maria Engelmann, in their search for a successor was entrusting the future of their company – founded in 1994 – to a strong, qualified and empathic family-owned company. “Continuity and reliability for our customers and employees was our main focus in our search for a successor. SCHAUENBURG is a successor that meets our high standards and will enhance ENGMATEC in the best interest of our company,” says ENGMATEC’s managing director Josef Engelmann. “This succession has no impact on existing customer and supplier relationships or employment relationships,” he promises. “Besides, the companies within the SCHAUENBURG Group offer high synergy potential,” Engelmann continues.
Tried and tested management team to stay:
The reliable management team, managing director Josef Engelmann, head of HR and authorised signatory Maria Engelmann and managing director Thomas Lang will stay with the company and continue to be ENGMATEC shareholders. A newly established advisory board is to create space for additional incentives and development opportunities.
