Private shareholders have sold Mürdter Group to Xandor Mürdter Automotive Holding, a portfolio company of Quantum Capital Partners
Mürdter Group, headquartered in Mutlangen, Germany, is a leading automotive supplier of plastic injection molding components with sophisticated geometries, including complex assembly, gluing and welding processes. The company’s product range contains surface parts as well as structural/functional parts for its long-standing, blue-chip, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and Tier-1 customer base. Further, Mürdter maintains its own tool making facilities, designing and manufacturing tools for both internal injection molding and external customers. The Mürdter Group operates through four sites in Germany and the Czech Republic, with a workforce of approximately 585 employees.
Over the past decades, the Mürdter family built a leading automotive supplier that is well renowned in the industry for its high quality and outstanding engineering capabilities. Due to lack of a family succession alternative, the shareholders decided to let the Mürdter Group become part of a larger automotive supplier.
Joerg Brunner, Managing Director in Lincoln’s Frankfurt office, commented, “The sale of Mürdter Group to Xandor Mürdter Automotive Holding follows a compelling strategic logic. Combined with Xandor Automotive’s Plastics division, Mürdter Group will be in a position to realize its full growth potential. This transaction demonstrates once again that mergers and acquisition are an essential tool for a family succession.”
