27. June 2018

Düssel­dorf — ARQIS has advi­sed BWK GmbH Unter­­neh­­mens-Betei­­li­­gungs­­­ge­­sel­l­­schaft (BWK) on the acqui­si­tion of a majo­rity stake in H & R Indus­trie­rohr­bau GmbH.

H & R Indus­trie­rohr­bau GmbH is head­quar­te­red in Gold­bach, Bava­ria, and specia­li­zes in the main­ten­ance and new cons­truc­tion of pipe­lines in produc­tion plants. In 2017, the company gene­ra­ted sales of just under 16 million euros with 80 employees at three loca­ti­ons — inclu­ding two “on-site loca­ti­ons” within indus­trial parks in the Rhine-Main region. H & R’s custo­mer base includes well-known major corpo­ra­ti­ons in the chemi­cal and phar­maceu­ti­cal indus­tries (e.g. Akzo­No­bel, Boeh­rin­ger Ingel­heim, Sanofi or Clari­ant) as well as medium-sized indus­trial customers.

“H & R is an excel­lently posi­tio­ned company in the market with an excel­lent repu­ta­tion. We are convin­ced that we can cons­truc­tively accom­pany H & R’s growth course,” says Dr. Bernd Berg­schnei­der, BWK Mana­ging Direc­tor. Rainer Miller, member of BWK’s manage­ment board: “Toge­ther with H & R, we will estab­lish further loca­ti­ons and, if neces­sary, also be present in other indus­trial parks via Buy&Build.”
