Initial situation

Metallbau Glawion GmbH was founded in 2004 and specializes in ball slewing rings and metal components/assemblies for the products of the future such as wind turbines, tower cranes, high-tech medical products, the railroad industry, electrical industry products, the construction industry and many other industries. With economical offerings, high reliability and excellent quality level, the company has been able to expand its customer base to more than 250 customers and now processes more than 500 tons per metal per year as base material. In 2022, the company could deliver more than 10,000 ball cages. Due to an age-related succession, the shareholder approached CARL.


In order to provide ideal support for the project, CARL worked together with the specialist Advisers Dr. Hamann from intelligentis. During the discussions with the management, it quickly became clear that a strategic investor from similar industries would be the most suitable buyer. In this context, the company benefited from the fact that, due to long-standing business relationships, it had a wide range of trustworthy contacts that could be utilized.


With Thiedig Holding GmbH, a strategic investor from an adjacent industry could be found, which can make very good use of the company's potential. Through vertical integration, an efficient value chain can be ensured, which offers the company a strategic advantage in the market. Thus, the succession could be solved very well.

"Through an efficient division of labor with CARL and good coordination, we were able to find an ideal investor for the company who was a good fit." - Dr. Hamann, intelligentis, Partner Consultant at CARL
