Liberta Partners acquires stake in FMA Mechatronic Solutions

15. Octo­ber 2019

Munich / Schaan — Liberta Part­ners (“Liberta”) acqui­res a majo­rity stake in FMA Mecha­tro­nic Solu­ti­ons AG (“FMA”), a medium-sized manu­fac­tu­ring service provi­der for mecha­tro­nic assem­blies, based in Schaan, Liech­ten­stein, as part of a succes­sion part­ners­hip. The previous main share­hol­der, Stefan Dürr, will remain active in the company as mana­ging part­ner. FMA was acqui­red through Liberta-initia­­ted Liberta Part­ners Fund II, which was laun­ched in April 2019. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose the purchase price.

FMA deve­lops and manu­fac­tures highly complex mecha­tro­nic assem­blies and system compon­ents and supplies custo­mers in the semi­con­duc­tor indus­try, water manage­ment, medi­cal tech­no­logy and the alumi­num indus­try, among others. FMA’s unique selling points include, in parti­cu­lar, its many years of exper­tise in mecha­tro­nic manu­fac­tu­ring and its outstan­ding effi­ci­ency, precision and deli­very relia­bi­lity from batch size 1.

Stefan Dürr, mana­ging part­ner of FMA, said: “With Liberta, we have an opera­tio­nal part­ner at our side who acts with long-term and fore­sight. With our custo­mi­zed product solu­ti­ons, we plan to expand our custo­mer base in Germany and neigh­bo­ring coun­tries. Liberta will actively support us in our further development.”

Dr. Peter Franke and Florian Korp, Part­ners at Liberta, add: “We are very plea­sed that Stefan Dürr has chosen Liberta to manage his succes­sion and success­fully align the company for the future. FMA will bene­fit from our broad indus­try network as well as our M&A exper­tise for suita­ble add-on acqui­si­ti­ons. In the coming years, we will provide FMA with entre­pre­neu­rial support in imple­men­ting the jointly defi­ned growth targets. In doing so, our top prio­rity is to conti­nue to meet the high inno­va­tion demands of our customers.”
