Munich — The share­hol­ders of Swibox Holding AG have sold 100% of their shares to the Munich-based private equity fund EOS Part­ners. — The Munich and Frank­furt offices of the inter­na­tio­nal law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP have advi­sed the share­hol­ders of Swibox Holding AG toge­ther with the Swiss law firm MLL Legal AG and the subse­quent re-inves­t­­ment in a joint holding company.

Swibox AG is a leading provi­der of elec­tri­cal enclo­sures and enclo­sure solu­ti­ons. In addi­tion to its own product lines and paten­ted new deve­lo­p­ments, inclu­ding in the field of safety tech­no­logy, the company plans to market its products not only on the Swiss market, but also inter­na­tio­nally. In order to meet this objec­tive, the Swibox Group was merged with the alre­ady inter­na­tio­nally estab­lished SRG & SERVE Group from Germany and Luxem­bourg under a joint holding company. Both groups will conti­nue to be mana­ged as inde­pen­dent compa­nies that operate auto­no­mously. The manage­ment of the Swibox Group will remain share­hol­ders in the new group of companies.
