„Through the comprehensive support of the Hamburg M&A team I was able to institute a sound succession plan for my company, with its special business model.“

Uwe Schüschke
Managing Partner Schüschke GmbH & Co. KG

TRANSACTION BACKGROUND

Since its founding in 1986 Schüschke GmbH & Co. KG near Stuttgart has positioned itself as a specialist in washbasins made of mineral materials for various markets. Especially in the aviation industry, the company has established itself as a reliable partner of leading manufacturers, and an important supplier for aircraft interiors.
The sole shareholder and CEO, Uwe Schüschke, was looking for a succession solution, operatively as well as on the capital side. In December 2015 this goal was reached through the sale of a majority of the shares to Silver Investment Partners. Together the new partners will manage the transition and align the company for future growth.
