Honsberg’s shareholder solves the corporate succession problem by integrating his business into a mid-sized group of measurement technology companies.

After careful consideration, Michael Seulen, shareholder of the Honsberg & Co. KG, sold the shares of his company and of its dutch sister company Honsberg BV to the Greisinger Beteiligungs GmbH, the holding company of the Greisinger electronic GmbH in Regenstauf, Bavaria. Greisinger electronic is a measurement and control technology company, producing mainly devices for laboratory use and portable measuring instruments.

Honsberg in Remscheid will continue to operate under the name Honsberg Instruments GmbH and it will continue to successfully develop and assemble mechanic and electronic measurement and monitoring devices that can be used to control flow, level, pressure and temperature of liquid or gaseous media. Those devices can be found in waste water Systems, diesel engines, hardening machines, compressors, construction machinery, paper or printing machines, machine tools, or cooling devices.

The aim of Greisinger Beteiligungs GmbH, which will operate under a new company name soon, is the creation of a mid-sized group of companies in the field of measurement and control technology with a revenue of € 25-30 million. In this process, ensuring continuity in the company’s management is crucial. The aim is to combine the advantages of an effective mid-sized technology company with the synergy effects of a small group, e.g. regarding international distribution. The companies Greisinger and Honsburg complement each other’s product Portfolios in an optimal way.

The new holding’s majority of shares is being held by BPE Private Equity in Hamburg (formerly Berenberg Private Equity), while Guenther Oehler will be the company’s managing partner. Furthermore, former shareholders Otmar and Elisabeth Greisinger as well as Michael Seulen continue to hold shares in the business.
