Munich, August 2, 2022 – AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA ("AURELIUS"; ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) announces the successfully closed sale of Hammerl GmbH (Hammerl), a leading manufacturer of blown film products in Germany, to Karl Bachl GmbH & Co KG (BACHL).
AURELIUS’ operations experts closely supported Hammerl in its transformation and growth during its time under AURELIUS ownership, which began in 2016. Hammerl has established itself as a leading industry player, offers exceptional levels of expertise and maintains a reliable as well as large customer base, with recurring order cycles.
Hammerl was founded in 1956 and has been a pioneer in blown film production since 1977. The products are primarily used in civil engineering, building construction/fitout, renovation, gardening and landscaping. Hammerl is the only company in the German market to cover the entire product range consisting of construction films, special films, dimpled mats and vapour barrier films. The products, which are ‘Made in Germany’, are mainly supplied to wholesalers under their own brand.
BACHL itself is a well-established film producer operating throughout Europe and will stand to benefit from Hammerl's expertise towards capitalising on its own corporate objectives.
