IMAP advises GESLENCHEM Chemical Products GmbH on its sale to a private investor

The two long-term shareholders of GELSENCHEM Chemical Products GmbH, Miguel Fábrega and Thomas Lüllemann, have sold all their shares to Höppner Finanz Holding, a company owned by Dr. Nils-Oliver Höppner and Mr. Rüdiger Funke. Given their previous activities in the chemical industry, the two new shareholders will bring new expertise to the company. This will enable GELSENCHEM to build up a new business segment and to expand their offering beyond the current product portfolio.
