Deal Announcement Automotive - HMP Felss

The Felss Group acquired machine tool manufacturer and automotive supplier HMP (Heinrich Müller Pforzheim) and acquired all shares in two HMP companies, Heinrich Müller Maschinenfabrik GmbH and HMP Umformtechnik GmbH, from shareholders Dr. Bernhard and Dr. Frank Müller. The shareholders were advised by an IMAP team that had already advised the Felss Group on the sale to Swiss private equity investor Capvis in January 2017. 

HMP will become part of the Felss Group, while the existing jobs and the two locations will be maintained. A technology leader in the rotary swaging, axial forming, rolling, drawing and straightening market segments, HMP designs and manufactures machines and components for the automotive and several other industries.

The Felss Group, based in Königsbach-Stein (Northern Black Forest), is a solution provider in the field of cold forming of tubes and solid materials for the automotive industry. The Group employs around 800 people at seven locations  worldwide in Germany, Switzerland, the USA, China and Slovakia. 

An IMAP team led by Dr. Carsten Lehmann and Mathias Bosse initiated the transaction and advised the shareholders of HMP in the negotiations and structuring of the transaction until completion.
