Munich/Nuremberg — The clam­ping tech­no­logy company SAV GmbH, Nurem­berg, announ­ces a capi­tal increase. The new capi­tal comes from BayBG Baye­ri­sche Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft, which takes over 20 percent of the company’s shares as a mino­rity share­hol­der and at the same time contri­bu­tes a silent part­ner­ship. BayBG’s invest­ment will enable SAV, which has annual sales of €27 million at sites in Nurem­berg, Mitt­weida and Göppin­gen, to conti­nue its deve­lo­p­ment into an engi­nee­ring specia­list and thus successfully complete the restruc­tu­ring process of recent years.

As one of the few full-range suppli­ers, SAV can draw on many years of exper­tise in magne­tic, rotary and statio­nary clam­ping and auto­ma­tion solu­ti­ons, giving the company a high level of solu­tion compe­tence for all clam­ping tech­no­logy requi­re­ments in a wide range of indus­tries. Well-known compa­nies from the fields of mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, trans­port and traf­fic, agri­cul­tu­ral tech­no­logy, aero­space and medi­cal tech­no­logy are among SAV’s custo­mer port­fo­lio. Inde­pen­dent product deve­lo­p­ments form a focal point of the further orientation.

SAV is also incre­asingly rely­ing on intel­li­gent auto­ma­tion concepts, such as the robot cell deve­lo­ped in-house. Martin Schach­erl, Mana­ging Direc­tor of SAV, is very plea­sed with the new inves­tor: “With BayBG, we have gained a very expe­ri­en­ced new part­ner. The newly acqui­red network and the addi­tio­nal capi­tal give us the free­dom to leverage growth poten­tial, for further deve­lo­p­ments and for opening up new markets. We are convin­ced that the coope­ra­tion will be very successful for both sides.”

Thomas Becher, Senior Invest­ment Mana­ger of BayBG, adds: “We were parti­cu­larly convin­ced by the expe­ri­en­ced and compe­tent SAV manage­ment team. With its consis­tent further focus on beco­ming an engi­nee­ring specia­list, the company is tapping addi­tio­nal poten­tial as a provi­der of clam­ping tech­no­logy solutions.”
