Aquin advises the Shareholders of Kümpers Composites on the takeover by an international investor group

June 29, 2020

Effective June 29, 2020 a Singapore based investor consortium acquired 95 percent equity in Kümpers Composites GmbH & Co. KG.

The acquisition has allowed the investors to secure the technological know-how, along with the perfected product quality from a leading manufacturer of reinforced carbon-fiber structural components. Through the investment consortium, Kümpers Composites has gained access to the promising Asian composite and lightweight construction market. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

Kümpers Composites GmbH & Co. KG, headquartered in Salzbergen-Holsterfeld (Germany), specializes in high-tech materials made out of carbon-, glass- and aramid fibers. The company relies on its proven, perfected technology along with a fully automated, robot driven production, to deliver high-strength composite solutions to the automobile, aviation and wind power industries. In the proven and mature technology of Kümpers Composites and the fully automated production at a high quality manufacturing level using robot applications, the group of investors sees the cornerstone for advancing via the Asian market to become one of the world's leading solution providers and volume manufacturers of carbon composites. For managing director and co-owner Franz-Jürgen Kümpers, who has continued to manage the company post acquisition, the takeover opens up the opportunity to expand into the future market Asia. A production facility in Taicang, near Shanghai (China) is already under construction.

Aquin was engaged by the shareholders of Kümpers Composites as the sole M&A advisor. Tax and legal advice was provided by HLB Schumacher. Taylor Wessing provided legal advice to the buyer side.
