The Schramm entrepreneurial family, which owns, among others, Schramm Werkstätten GmbH (Winnweiler, Germany), together with the regional financial investor MB Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH, acquires the traditional German company Interlübke through its investment company Schramm Holding GmbH. During the transaction, both parties were accompanied by currentis GmbH.
Axel and Philipp Schramm explain: "After careful examination as well as the positive momentum of the imm cologne 2018 for Interlübke, together with CEO Patrik Bernstein we are convinced that the company and the brand Interlübke can be led into a successful future."
The company Interlübke was founded in 1937 and currently employs about 160 people at the Rheda-Wiedenbrück site. The previous shareholders, whose interests are represented by Rigeto Unternehmerkapital GmbH, have in recent years intensively promoted the brand and corporate image, the market development of specialist retailers and the development of the product range. Among other things, this led to the presentation of the German Brand Award in 2017.
In order to accelerate the growth of the company and to facilitate an improved, especially international marketing, the shareholders have decided to sell their stake for strategic reasons. The shares in Lübke GmbH and the Interlübke brand should therefore be sold to a sector-experienced, strategic investor who will ensure the future of the traditional company Interlübke in a challenging industry environment.
"With Schramm as a reliable strategic partner, the expertise of Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH and the motivated Interlübke team, we will continue to develop the extremely well-known and esteemed brand and tradition company in the high-end furniture sector, and in future trust it and strong partners for specialist retailers and end customers, "concluded Axel and Philipp Schramm.
