GAF is an owner-managed company in the field of measurement and control technology. Founded in 1992, it now has a total of 13 employees. GAF is managed by Uwe Heinrich and two other shareholders: a project engineer and a software development manager. All three decided unanimously to sell the company. After almost 30 years, the main shareholder Uwe Heinrich, in particular, would like to take his well-deserved retirement in order to have more time with his family and to travel. Nevertheless, it was a matter close to his heart to know that his life's work would be in good hands, that the jobs of his employees would continue to be secured and that the company would remain in its form after the sale. On the recommendation of their house bank, Deutsche Bank AG, the company owners sought professional help. Goal-oriented preliminary talks and the characteristics of a fast and at the same time individual process handling of transactions finally convinced them to find the perfect succession for the company together with the advisory team of our partner.
