The owner of Oertzen GmbH changes in 2014

HGK Global GmbH and 13 other investors provide equity for the takeover and will be the new shareholders of the company!

Lemgo / Hamburg / Munich: As of now Lampe Privatinvest is the Majority shareholder in OERTZEN GmbH, a specialist of high pressure cleaner and cleaning systems, based in Ammersbek near Hamburg. The traditional company was founded 65 years ago, engages nearly 80 employees and generates sales of around 10 million euros p.a..

Lampe Privatinvest has acquired the shares of the independent investment company ARCUS Capital AG from Munich. CEO Patrick Graef will still stay as the Managing Partner. He has been with OERTZEN for 30 years and will keep the loyalty to the company - continuity is ensured.

“I feel confident; with Lampe Privatinvest we have a strong, entrepreneurial-minded partner next to us. This ensures that we will continue our business with high pressure and we are also well prepared for the challenges of the future", Mr. Graef said.

In 2007 ARCUS has acquired OERTZEN GmbH by the founding family and developed further together with the management. The main focus was preparation for international expansion as well as the optimization of operational business processes. After a holding period of 7 years the company was sold because of new investment potential of ARCUS. Both parties decided to maintain silence about the purchasing price. “I’m sure, the success history will go on with Lampe Privatinvest”, ARCUS-managing board Stefan Eishold said.

Victor Antunes, Managing Director of Lampe Privatinvest Management GmbH is now looking forward to attend the next development phases of OERTZEN GmbH together with the management. “One of our significant investment criteria is an excellent, well-established management team, which continues to be available even after a transaction. This is absolutely given by von OERTZEN.”
