Wetz­lar / Wesel / Munich — Nach­fol­ge­kon­tor, toge­ther with sonn­tag corpo­rate finance a leading German M&A advi­sory boutique, has successfully advi­sed RMS GmbH (“RMS”), known for its special LÜRA storage products, on its sale to the new majo­rity share­hol­der Hohn­haus & Jansen­ber­ger Group (“HJG”). With this tran­sac­tion, RMS GmbH, which specia­li­zes in steel cons­truc­tion and bulk goods storage tech­no­logy, is aiming for further natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal growth.

RMS GmbH was foun­ded in 1996 with a focus on the deve­lo­p­ment, produc­tion and sale of highly specia­li­zed products for the storage and sort­ing of bulk mate­ri­als and thus offers tailor-made system solu­ti­ons for bulk mate­ri­als logi­stics. Their robust, multi­func­tional LÜRA parti­tion walls made of steel form the basis. They are used for the flexi­ble cons­truc­tion of mobile-modu­lar box systems and a wide range of hall opti­ons inclu­ding roof constructions.

New pros­pects for RMS through stra­te­gic majo­rity shareholder
RMS intends to conti­nue its growth trajec­tory of recent years in the future: Foun­ded in 2013, the Hohn­haus & Jansen­ber­ger Group (“HJG”) is an invest­ment company focu­sed on medium-sized compa­nies in German-spea­king count­ries that has exten­sive indus­trial expe­ri­ence, parti­cu­larly in metal proces­sing. The company focu­ses on opera­tio­nal support for acqui­red compa­nies and pursues a long-term invest­ment approach. In total, around EUR 30 million has been inves­ted in SMEs in the DACH region since the company was founded.

With the majo­rity stake now held by Munich-based HJG, RMS will expand its posi­tion in the market and at the same time clarify the future succes­sion of RMS Mana­ging Direc­tor Stephan Lüger. He will remain with RMS as mana­ging direc­tor and share­hol­der; Peter Jansen­ber­ger, part­ner at HJG, will also join the manage­ment team.

New name, same values: RMS beco­mes LÜRA as part of the acquisition

RMS takes the start of the fourth decade of the company’s history and the new owner­ship struc­ture as an oppor­tu­nity to set the course for the future: At the same time as the chan­ges at share­hol­der level, the company is being rena­med from RMS to LÜRA. From a stra­te­gic point of view, this is a sensi­ble step, as the brand name alre­ady stands for unique products that combine inno­va­tion and quality in the bulk solids market.

Stephan Lüger, Mana­ging Direc­tor of RMS: “For around 30 years, we have been crea­ting flexi­ble, dura­ble system solu­ti­ons for bulk goods logi­stics with LÜRA — solu­ti­ons that are only available from us. I am deligh­ted to have gained the Hohn­haus & Jansen­ber­ger Group as a strong part­ner for my company. We agree on our busi­ness philo­so­phy. For us, the corner­sto­nes are appre­cia­tion and long-term part­ner­ships with custo­mers, suppli­ers and employees.”

Peter Jansen­ber­ger, Part­ner of the Hohn­haus & Jansen­ber­ger Group, adds: “We got to know Mr. Lüger and RMS very well in advance and are looking forward to shaping the future toge­ther with an entre­pre­neur of such compe­tence and integrity.”

We are convin­ced that this synergy has the poten­tial to take RMS to a new level of growth and market presence.”
