Next step in the strategic expansion of the service portfolio in the Healthcare Business
At the beginning of the year, Simon Hegele Gesellschaft für Logistik und Service mbH acquired 50% of the shares in Georg Schrepfer GmbH. The other 50% remain with the previous owner, Thomas Bach. For Simon Hegele, this is a further step towards expanding its market leadership in the healthcare environment.
The company Georg Schrepfer was founded in 1928 and is owner-managed. The self-image is that of an experienced partner for professional packaging solutions of all kinds. The portfolio ranges from planning to the design, construction and production of packaging solutions, including all related services. The company specialized in the production of customized wooden transport packaging solutions and offers high-quality disposable as well as reusable packaging.
By acquiring the shares, the Simon Hegele Group is expanding its portfolio of services to include the production and design of special constructions, cases, pallets, packaging made of wood, and cut-to-size products made of wooden panel materials. Thus, the production of further customer-specific packaging solutions can be ensured within the own group and the company portfolio can be extended by the area of sustainable reusable packaging. This is particularly necessary in these volatile times, to anticipate supply bottlenecks and to ensure material availability on a permanent basis.
Thomas Bach, Managing Director of Georg Schrepfer GmbH, thinks that this is "the perfect match": "Simon Hegele's participation creates a strong partnership that offers significant advantages to both sides. For Georg Schrepfer GmbH, the new shareholder Simon Hegele opens the door to new product and customer segments. Simon Hegele thus supports Georg Schrepfer on its way to becoming the leading packaging specialist for disposable and reusable packaging as well as packaging services."
Mike Winter, Managing Director of Simon Hegele Gesellschaft für Logistik und Service mbH, is also very pleased: "The continuous development of our 360° portfolio is an essential component for us to remain true to our value proposition #wemakehealthcarework. By acquiring the shares, we can further expand our expertise as a market leader in the healthcare environment and offer additional attractive solutions and respond even more effectively to new and our existing customer needs in the field of medical technology. This, once again, illustrates how important strategic partnerships are."
