IMAP advises financial investor Nimbus on the sale of RCP Ranstadt

The family office Zobel Values AG has acquired the packaging specialist RCP Ranstadt GmbH from the Dutch financial investor Nimbus hands-on investors, who has successfully realigned the company over the last eight years.

Founded in 1953, RCP Ranstadt, headquartered in the Hessian Ranstadt, manufactures disposable products for detergents and personal care products, as well as food and is one of the leading providers in the flexible packaging sector in Europe. With the support of state-of-the-art facilities, moist lens cleaning tissues or cosmetics tissues, for example, are packaged. Customers are well-known brand companies as well as trading companies with private label products. With nearly 150 employees, the company generated revenues of approximately €30 million in 2016.

In 2009, following the financial crisis, Nimbus acquired the company from the Dutch Budelpack Group, making comprehensive investments in the company and realigning it. Nimbus describes itself as a “hands-on-investor” specialized in special situations.

The buyer, family office Zobel Values AG, specializes in succession solutions. The successful entrepreneurial family, with a long tradition in the mechanical engineering sector, manages their industrial companies themselves. ”We are glad to have found a long-term-oriented investor for our well-established company and are expecting valuable support for our growth plans“, commented Karl Koob, Managing Director of RCP Ranstadt.

The IMAP-Team consisting of Karl Fesenmeyer, Mario Flory and Lisa Haug advised the seller on the implementation of the structured sales process and was able to complete the transaction within just a few months. Karl Fesenmeyer, Managing Director of IMAP in Germany, commented: ”The company, with its innovative cost leadership, has an exceptionally stable and future-oriented business model, which fits perfectly into a family office portfolio."
