Heytex Gruppe an neuen Investor veräußert
Bramsche/Germany in January 2023
Deutsche Beteiligungs AG, headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, is selling as planned the ventures of the Heytex Group, headquartered in Bramsche, Germany, after 10 years of investment to Bencis, an investor with offices in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Bencis has been successful as a private equity firm in its European locations for over 20 years in various sectors. In 2022, the company received the M&A Award in the Best Private Equity House Mid-Market category.
Bencis supports the current direction of Heytex, which has undergone significant strategic development in recent years.
Company acquisitions and significant investments in machinery and equipment played an important role here. With the acquisition of BondCote corp., USA in December 2014, the market entry into the USA was realized. Furthermore, Heytex has succeeded in the operational turnaround of its Chinese production site since 2018. The acquisition of TenCate Outdoor Fabrics, a market leader in the tent and awning industry from the Netherlands, in 2021 was another important step towards broadening the global production base and complementing the product portfolio.
At the Bramsche site, considerable investments have been made in machinery, equipment, and infrastructure in recent years. Likewise, the sites in the USA and China have been equipped with modern and efficient coating lines.
This enables Heytex, as the only supplier in this industry with production sites on three continents, to respond in the best possible way to the technical and regional challenges of its customers.
“The Heytex Group has been able to master challenges such as Corona or the current energy crisis very well. This is also due to the good international positioning of our company as well as the investments made. We are pleased that with the long-planned sale we have a new, competent partner at our side who will further support our orientation and development and we thank DBAG for its previous role in this”, says Hans-Dieter Kohake, CEO of the Heytex Group.
