IMAP advises the shareholder of KÜBLER Group on a majority sale to Kapital 1852

KÜBLER Group, the German innovation leader for energy and CO2-saving hall heating systems, has been acquired by the "MidCapPlus" fund as part of a succession solution. The "MidCapPlus" fund is managed by the private equity firm Kapital 1852 Beratungs GmbH. The founder and former sole shareholder, Mr. Thomas Kübler, remains invested in the company and will continue to act as managing director.

KÜBLER Group, headquartered in Ludwigshafen, is the leading specialist for hall heating solutions and automated heat management systems ("HEAT 4.0") with particular expertise in energy-saving infrared heating technology, intelligent controls, and innovative heat recovery systems. Since the company’s foundation in 1989, the multiple award-winning, innovative, and highly efficient all-in-one solutions have sustainably contributed to reducing CO2 emissions and to saving up to 70% energy. KÜBLER’s hall heating systems are also available as "heat-as-a-service" rental solution under the name "HeizWerk".

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe Privatbank AG, Düsseldorf-based Kapital 1852 Beratungs GmbH combines the extensive experience of the Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe Group in the field of equity investments. The private equity firm has been running a successful investment business based on its deep understanding of the German Mittelstand for around 10 years. The "MidCapPlus" equity fund carries out direct investments in medium-sized companies headquartered in Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

"We were very impressed by KÜBLER’s technology leadership. We look forward to further developing the company jointly with Thomas Kübler, a proven expert and innovation driver in the field of energy-saving hall heating systems. Together, we will expand the service and rental business and sustainably position KÜBLER for the future," states Sebastian Wilde, Partner at Kapital 1852.

"I am delighted to have found a highly-capable partner for KÜBLER Group in Kapital 1852, with whose help the upcoming entrepreneurial challenges can be managed even more effectively in the long term," adds Thomas Kübler.

The IMAP team, comprising Peter A. Koch, Florian Müller and Constantin vom Bauer, exclusively advised the shareholder of KÜBLER Group in a structured M&A process through all phases until the successful closing of the transaction.
