Perusa Fund invests in the MÜPRO Group

30. Janu­ary 2018

Munich / Wallau / Burg­bern­heim — The fund Perusa Part­ners Fund II L.P., advi­sed by the inde­pen­dent Perusa GmbH, toge­ther with other insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors, acqui­red the Swiss Secura Indus­trie­be­tei­li­gun­gen AG inclu­ding the MÜPRO Group and UBB GmbH as of Janu­ary 23, 2018.

MÜPRO is a leading global provi­der of fastening, noise control and fire protec­tion solu­ti­ons with conso­li­da­ted sales of around EUR 95 million. Its fastening solu­ti­ons are used in buil­dings, commer­cial proper­ties and indus­trial plants, espe­cially in the assem­bly of heating, air condi­tio­ning and venti­la­tion tech­no­logy, as well as in the mari­time sector for marine equip­ment and various indus­trial appli­ca­ti­ons. The aim of the acqui­si­tion is to accom­pany the long-term inter­na­tio­nal growth of the group and to focus MÜPRO on its core compe­ten­cies — deve­lo­p­ment, consul­ting and project support.

The previous company owner, Harald Müller, as well as part of the former Secura manage­ment will focus on buil­ding digi­tal products and services for medium-sized busi­nes­ses with the newly foun­ded SYMBIONET AG as of Febru­ary 2018. SYMBIONET’s areas of exper­tise are sales soft­ware and plat­form solu­ti­ons, auto­ma­ted logistics services as well as online trading and marke­ting services. The foun­da­tion for the new busi­ness model has already been laid in recent years as part of the digi­tiz­a­tion process at the Secura Group.

Dr. Chris­tian Hollen­berg (photo), foun­ding part­ner of Perusa, explains, “MÜPRO has an impres­sive history as a leading supplier in this market. In the future, the company will focus enti­rely on its core compe­ten­cies in engi­nee­ring, consul­ting, project support, and the deve­lo­p­ment and produc­tion of high-quality fastening tech­no­logy.” Harald Müller elabo­ra­tes: “The tran­sac­tion provi­des MÜPRO with addi­tio­nal resour­ces to imple­ment its stra­tegy in the long term. Both groups — MÜPRO and SYMBIONET — can now conti­nue to grow profi­ta­bly in the future based on their diffe­rent busi­ness models.”

The buyer Perusa Part­ners Fund II L.P. and its co-inves­­tors were advi­sed in the tran­sac­tion by KPMG (Commer­cial), Deloitte (Finan­cial, Tax), Gütt Olk Feld­haus (Legal), Valleé & Part­ner (Logistics) and TÜV Süd (Envi­ron­men­tal).
