Particularly noteworthy in this context is the 40% cross-border quota. This is living international cooperation! In 2015, international transactions were successfully concluded with China, Singapore, France, Serbia, Scandinavia, the USA and Switzerland. Our China Desk was able to provide valuable support for German companies in China as well as for Chinese investors on their way to Europe/Germany ".
In order to meet the increasing global importance of industry specialization, IMAP has bundled its competencies in selected areas into internationally staffed, specialized sector teams. Our customers also benefit from our completed transactions in the respective sectors. In 2015, for example, transactions in the sectors of mechanical engineering, hydraulics, packaging, fluid technology and seals, energy, services such as property management or language travel through to real estate transactions were successfully concluded by our industry experts for our customers.
