Hamburg-based BPE has sold DuoTherm to StellaGroup, a portfolio company of PAI Partners and ICG

DuoTherm is the German specialist for innovative, high quality and individually adaptable products in the roller shutter and window shading market. Headquartered in Nettersheim-Zingsheim, Germany, DuoTherm operates two manufacturing facilities with more than 130 employees. The company provides innovative window shading systems such as top-mounted roller shutter boxes and front-mounted roller shutter boxes, among other window awning elements. DuoTherm’s customers are comprised of window manufacturers, specialist dealers and craftsmen, trade customers and internet retailers.

The acquisition of DuoTherm supports StellaGroup’s strategy to become a true European leader in closures and sun protection systems, now achieving more than half of its turnover outside of France.

Lincoln International was mandated by the owners of DuoTherm, led by BPE, as the exclusive financial adviser to manage a structured and competitive sell-side mergers and acquisitions process. Lincoln International advised the owners and the management team throughout the entire process from a comprehensive preparation during pre-marketing to an efficient due diligence and signing phase, providing valuable strategic guidance.
