Achieving an optimal succession for a family-owned company
Stadtmühle Schenk AG, one of the top three flour mills in Switzerland, has been acquired by Kowema AG, a group of companies owned by a number of Swiss pension funds.
Stadtmühle Schenk is a family-owned company founded in 1844. It produces a wide range of quality flours for the most demanding clients. As part of their succession plan, the owners decided to sell their shares to a long-term investor that will guarantee the continues existence of the company in the future.
In addition to their individualized consulting approach and professional support, we were also impressed by Oaklins’ reach, which enabled us to find suitable interested parties outside our environment.STEFAN SCHENK, CHAIRMAN, STADTMÜHLE SCHENK AG, SWITZERLAND
