Initial situation

KA Metallbau GmbH was founded in 1997 and is located in Bamberg, Germany. Within only 20 years, KA was able to develop from a small locksmith to an established solution provider. In addition to a 3D drawing program for commercial, industrial and administrative objects in steel and aluminum construction, the company offers a wide range of solutions for active and passive fire protection.


CARL acted as co-Advisers for the sale of KA Metallbau GmbH. The focus was on identifying and approaching potential buyers. In particular, access to management buy-in candidates on the CARL platform was crucial. CARL contacted over 150 potential investors in a nine-month process. It succeeded in finding the right investor for the company.


The Company Owner initially attempted a self-energy sale for three years.A selective approach and targeted negotiation enabled proceeds from the sale to be 30% higher than the first binding offer.

"I am proud that after a successful handover, all employees are still employed. I was able to accompany the company for another year. The business development with the new owner is very good. A handover cannot go any better."

Founder & former Managing Director
