The Bubenhofer family has taken over all the shares of the German, medium-sized coating material manufacturer in the context of a succession solution. Until now, the company has also been a family business and will continue to operate with its locations in Switzerland and abroad as an independent company under the roof of the Swiss Group.

For GEHOLIT+WIEMER, the merger between the two family businesses is a future-oriented further development, "Together we are uniting more than two centuries of experience, knowhow and innovation in the field of paints and varnishes. The experienced collaboration also highlights the shared values of our companies. The ideal condition for a fusion" declares Christian Wiemer, managing associate to date. He will lead the company as managing director until the end of 2021.

The takeover was preceded by decades of partnership. Since 1988, GEHOLIT+WIEMER and KARL BUBENHOFER AG, have been operating a distribution company for powder coatings in Germany.

Dr. Stephanie Bubenhofer, who manages KARL BUBENHOFER AG together with her brothers Andreas and Christoph Bubenhofer, points out the advantages of the acquisition, "We have known each other for a long time. The cooperation has always been constructive and friendly. Our products and the GEHOLIT+WIEMER portfolio complement one another perfectly. This strengthens us as a group and makes our offer even more competitive on the markets."

GEHOLIT+WIEMER is a specialist for corrosion protection and industrial coatings.
