Liberta Partners takes over KKS Kemmler Kopier Systeme

11. May 2022

Munich / Kaisers­lau­tern — Liberta Part­ners (“LIBERTA”), with the support of BayBG Baye­ri­sche Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft mbH, acqui­res KKS Kemm­ler Kopier Systeme GmbH (“KKS”), a service provi­der in the field of mana­ged services for office infra­struc­ture, in the course of a stra­te­gic part­ner­ship. The previous sole share­hol­der, Axel Kemm­ler, remains active in the company as mana­ging direc­tor and shareholder.

The company’s core compe­ten­cies are Mana­ged Print Services (MPS) and include in parti­cu­lar the manage­ment of prin­ter infra­struc­ture. This includes the opti­miza­tion, analy­sis and auto­ma­tion of prin­ting, scan­ning and copy­ing proces­ses at custo­mers. In addi­tion, the company offers solu­ti­ons in the area of digi­tal docu­ment manage­ment systems (DMS) and is curr­ently expan­ding this area signi­fi­cantly. The company was foun­ded in 1998 by Axel Kemm­ler and curr­ently employs 34 people. KKS is head­quar­te­red in Kaisers­lau­tern, with addi­tio­nal bran­ches in Pirma­sens and Landau. As the regio­nal market leader, KKS serves around 2,150 custo­mers in Rhineland-Palatinate.

Company foun­der Axel Kemm­ler commen­ted on the part­ner­ship as follows: “With LIBERTA, we have an opera­tio­nal part­ner at our side who acts with long-term and fore­sight. With our custo­mi­zed solu­ti­ons, for the modern office infra­struc­ture, we plan to expand our custo­mer base and to speci­fi­cally extend our service port­fo­lio. LIBERTA will actively support us in our further deve­lo­p­ment. I am looking forward to the joint tasks and goals.”

Nils von Wietz­low, Part­ner of LIBERTA (Photo, © Liberta) and respon­si­ble for succes­sion solu­ti­ons, adds: “We are very plea­sed that Axel Kemm­ler has chosen LIBERTA to jointly shape the company’s future stra­tegy. The excel­lent repu­ta­tion in the market and the conso­li­da­ted custo­mer base will form the basis for further growth. In this context, the digi­ta­liza­tion trend of office infra­struc­ture, in the German SME sector, is the key poten­tial. We plan to map growth both orga­ni­cally and inorganically.”

This is the tenth invest­ment of Liberta Part­ners Fund II, which closed in Octo­ber 2019. The fund invests in group spin-offs and succes­sion situa­tions of family busi­nesses with a strong focus on support­ing the opera­tio­nal deve­lo­p­ment of its port­fo­lio companies.
