Frank­furt am Main — Beyond Capi­tal Part­ners Fund II, advi­sed by Beyond Capi­tal Part­ners GmbH (“BCP”), has inves­ted in Wiethe Content GmbH & Co KG (“Wiethe”), based in Georgs­ma­ri­en­hütte and Bremen. Signing and closing was comple­ted in Septem­ber 2021.

Wiethe is one of the leading German digi­tal agen­cies and market leader in the fashion sector. With the largest e‑commerce photo studio in Europe, Wiethe specia­li­zes as a service provi­der in the area of content crea­tion & produc­tion and bene­fits from the acce­le­ra­ted change of statio­nary trade to e‑commerce. Over the past 15 years, under the custo­­mer-centric leaders­hip of its foun­der and names­ake Markus Wiethe, the company has deve­lo­ped into the rele­vant service provi­der for custo­mers in the fashion sector. With 150 employees at 2 loca­ti­ons and over 50 custo­mers, Wiethe is thus a funda­men­tal full-service provi­der in the e‑commerce scene and the one-stop-shop fulfill­ment provi­der for digi­tal content for its custo­mers, which include global brands such as adidas, Reebok, Hugo Boss, G Star, Stylebop, Deich­mann and many more.

“Beyond Capi­tal Part­ners has convin­ced us with its profes­sio­nal manner and under­stan­ding of a conti­nuously growing medium-sized company like us. Toge­ther with the BCP team, we want to use the coming years to conso­li­date our leading posi­tion in Germany and further roll out our service port­fo­lio for both exis­ting and new clients. For me, in addi­tion to Beyond’s profes­sio­nal exper­tise, it was above all the confi­den­tial and perso­nal exchange at eye level that confir­med a long-term part­ners­hip,” says Markus Wiethe, foun­der and mana­ging direc­tor of the company.

“Wiethe convin­ced us from the first moment with its clearly defi­ned focus on the needs of its custo­mers and the profes­sio­nal struc­ture of the company. Toge­ther with Markus Wiethe as foun­der and also future mana­ging part­ner as well as his team of moti­va­ted employees, we see a clearly focu­sed orga­nic growth story. In addi­tion, we will also take the oppor­tu­nity for selec­tive acqui­si­ti­ons in the DACH region and Europe in order to signi­fi­cantly support the company in its core area as well as adja­cent services and to be able to deve­lop it to a new reve­nue and size level,” adds Chris­toph D. Kauter, Foun­der and Mana­ging Part­ner of Beyond Capi­tal Partners.
