Succession: ADCURAM acquires Berlin-based Garbe Group

2. August 2019

Munich — With the Garbe Group, Adcu­ram Group AG acqui­res a regio­nally leading and successful provi­der of complex cons­truc­tion services with 370 employees. Under the name RWG, the company bund­les its specia­liza­tion in tech­ni­cally complex demo­li­tion projects. Thanks to further in-house exper­tise in the field of pollutant reme­dia­tion and its own buil­ding mate­ri­als recy­cling centers, the Group alre­ady has an excel­lent posi­tion, an outstan­ding market posi­tion in Berlin and sustainable opera­ting margins of over 10%.

With ADCURAM’s parti­ci­pa­tion, the succes­sion of the foun­der and mana­ging direc­tor Eckhard Garbe will be sett­led and the proces­ses and struc­tures of the group will be further impro­ved. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose details of the tran­sac­tion, which has alre­ady been completed.

“ADCURAM will streng­then its own capa­ci­ties, selec­tively comple­ment its range of services and further expand its market posi­tion. We see very attrac­tive market condi­ti­ons and oppor­tu­ni­ties for regio­nal expan­sion in Berlin in the coming years,” says ADCURAM CEO Henry Bricken­kamp (photo) . His Execu­tive Board colle­ague Stefan Weiß adds: “During the nine months in which we nego­tia­ted the tran­sac­tion as exclu­sive part­ner, we were alre­ady able to demons­trate our relia­bi­lity and deve­lop the stra­tegy for a successful succession.”

Eckhard Garbe added: “I am deligh­ted to have found a new main share­hol­der in ADCURAM, which will conti­nue to write our success story to date.”

ADCURAM is a priva­tely owned indus­trial group. ADCURAM acqui­res compa­nies with poten­tial and deve­lops them actively and sustain­ably. For the future growth of the Group, the capi­­tal-strong indus­trial holding company has a total of 300 million euros available for acqui­si­ti­ons. With the help of its own 40-strong team of experts, the indus­trial holding company conti­nues to deve­lop the port­fo­lio compa­nies stra­te­gi­cally and opera­tio­nally. Toge­ther, the group gene­ra­tes more than 400 million euros in sales with six holdings and over 2,500 employees worldwide.
