Lincoln International advises the owners of WMK Group on an Owners-Buy-Out
In April 2008, the owners of WMK Group successfully completed an Owners-Buy-Out by means of a recapitalisation. The entire borrowed capital was supplied by the Frankfurt branch of Investkredit Bank AG.

The company is predominantly the sole supplier for the leading commercial vehicle manufacturers (such as Daimler, MAN, Scania, Krone, Bomag) and cars, off-highway motors as well as casting and forging components.
