With Zobel Values AG, the Kaltenbach Group has secured a strong strategic partner for itself. The Swiss Family Office has invested a double-digit million amount in the Kaltenbach Group, and thus secured the long-term future of the traditional company in Lörrach.
The Kaltenbach group of companies is a German family-owned company with a focus on machine and plant construction in the metalworking industry and can look back on almost 130 years of family-run, medium-sized company history.
“The repositioning with Zobel Values AG as a strategic partner opens up a wide range of new opportunities for the Kaltenbach Group to expand its strong position as a quality leader and solutions provider in the market,” said Valentin Kaltenbach. “We would like to thank the Kloepfel Corporate Finance team for their high level of commitment and professional approach throughout the entire process. With Zobel Values AG, we have not only gained an ideal partner with a long-term orientation and classic values, but have also restructured our entire corporate financing.”
The company Zobel Values AG will take over the entire corporate financing and intends to strengthen its finances as well as provide funds for inorganic growth. The restructuring of the Kaltenbach Group, which began in 2015, is expected to be completed in 2017. Zobel Values AG is backed by a successful family of entrepreneurs with a long tradition in the mechanical engineering sector, which manages its own industrial companies.
Kloepfel Corporate Finance structured the entire M&A process and exclusively supported the Kaltenbach Group as well as Valentin Kaltenbach and the management in close cooperation in all phases.
