Acquisition at ADCURAM: Grating specialist ASM becomes part of the MEA Group

13. March 2019

Munich — Only a few months after the take­over by the Munich-based indus­trial holding ADCURAM, the MEA Group has reali­zed an important acqui­si­tion: With Adolf Schrei­ber GmbH (ASM) from Münsin­gen, a tradi­­tion-rich specia­list supplier beco­mes part of the inter­na­tio­nal cons­truc­tion supplier head­quar­te­red in Aich­ach. The tran­sac­tion has alre­ady been comple­ted; the parties have agreed not to disc­lose details.

ASM, the former Adolf Schrei­ber Metall­wa­ren­fa­brik, was foun­ded in 1872 and focu­sed on the produc­tion of high-quality gratings made of steel and stain­less steel more than 50 years ago. Nume­rous natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal custo­mers from indus­try, plant engi­nee­ring and cons­truc­tion rely on the company’s expe­ri­ence and high quality stan­dards. ASM produ­ces gratings for them indi­vi­du­ally in diffe­rent sizes, mate­rial thic­k­nes­ses and mesh widths on modern equipment.

As a future part of the Metal Appli­ca­ti­ons busi­ness area, ASM comple­ments MEA’s port­fo­lio with further high-quality stain­less steel gratings and contri­bu­tes important auto­ma­ted manu­fac­tu­ring capa­ci­ties for MEA’s steadily growing order volume.

“With the acqui­si­tion, MEA can further tigh­ten stra­te­gic levers in terms of busi­ness expan­sion with exis­ting custo­mers, deve­lo­p­ment of addi­tio­nal market segments, streng­thening of the distri­bu­tion network as well as further tech­no­lo­gi­cal deve­lo­p­ment,” says Dr. Phil­ipp Gusinde (photo), CEO of ADCURAM Group AG and member of the advi­sory board at MEA. Tors­ten Wende, Mana­ging Direc­tor of MEA Metal Appli­ca­ti­ons adds: “We plan to expand ASM’s company site in Münsin­gen, Swabia, into a compe­tence center for all of MEA’s high-quality stain­less steel produc­tion. We are very plea­sed to welcome ASM to the MEA Group.” ADCURAM had acqui­red the family-owned company, foun­ded in 1886, in the summer of 2018 and has since been imple­men­ting an ambi­tious stra­tegy for further growth and expan­sion. MEA employs around 700 people and, as one of the leading suppli­ers to the cons­truc­tion indus­try, manu­fac­tures not only special gratings but also, among other things, light wells, windows and drai­nage systems.

ADCURAM is a priva­tely owned indus­trial group. ADCURAM acqui­res compa­nies with poten­tial and deve­lops them actively and sustain­ably. For the future growth of the Group, the capi­­tal-strong indus­trial holding company has a total of 300 million euros available for acqui­si­ti­ons. With the help of its own 40-strong team of experts, the indus­trial holding company conti­nues to deve­lop the port­fo­lio compa­nies stra­te­gi­cally and opera­tio­nally. Toge­ther, the group gene­ra­tes nearly 500 million euros in sales world­wide (2017) with six holdings and over 2,500 employees.

ADCURAM sees itself as an entre­pre­neu­rial inves­tor and invests in succes­sion plans and corpo­rate spin-offs.
