HOW TO HELP THE BACKBONE OF THE GERMAN ECONOMY REGAIN ITS STRENGTH.
The mechanical and plant engineering sector is facing major challenges
The last ten years have been a roller coaster ride for Germany’s flagship industry: after stagnation and strong growth came the Corona shock in 2020. Even though we have returned to normal levels, the challenges are not getting any less. Skyrocketing energy and material prices, supply chain issues, digital transformation, international competition: there is a lot to do.
It is important that you have the right advisors on your side who are familiar with these issues in an M&A process.
What goals are on the agenda – and how to achieve them.
Aside from the current energy and material price crisis, the big issue in this and all other industries remains digital transformation and how to master it successfully. The potential for improvement is obvious: faster processes, optimized production workflows and, last but not least, significant cost savings.
But technology trends such as AI, Big Data, Smart Factory, digital twins or changed sales processes will also play a decisive role when it comes to the future of many hidden champions.
What shapes the industry – and what we know all about
- Expansion of own market position through acquisitions
- Acquisition of software and technology companies as part of digitization strategies
- Purchasing activities by Chinese companies on the rise again
- Carve-Outs of subdivisions outside the Group focus
