SLF Fraureuth GmbH has been acquired by Avedon Capital Partners

The private shareholders of Spindel- und Lagerungstechnik Fraureuth GmbH (SLF) have sold the company to Avedon Capital Partners, a private equity firm with offices in the Netherlands and Germany.

Founded in 1993, SLF has recorded profits over the last 25 years. This considerable success shows the company’s clear focus on the industry and its OEM customers that are fast-growing market leaders in their respective sectors. Customers appreciate SLF’s business approach, broad offering (type and outer diameter range from 32 to 1,600 mm), consistent high quality and short lead times.

Avedon Capital Partners is a private equity company with offices in the Netherlands and Germany. The firm specializes in growth capital, restructuring, expansion capital, mezzanine, buy-outs and buy-ins, and small middle-market investments. It seeks to invest in small and medium-sized companies in Benelux and Germany.

Oaklins’ team in Germany, supported by Oaklins’ industry specialists from around the world, acted as the exclusive M&A advisor to the shareholders of SLF on the sale of the business, and structured a competitive process with the participation of international trade and financial buyers. The team had built a detailed understanding of the business and a trusting relationship with the SLF founders over the two years prior to the sale in January 2019.
