Schlüssel-Industrie: Ocean engineering

Acquisiton year: 2013

In September 2013, PMB also took over the Lübeck-based Gabler Maschinenbau GmbH. The company is a world leader in the development of marine technology and components for marine and maritime applications. It is known world-wide for its high innovative power and technological leadership. Gabler can look back on more than 50 years of company history. Mario Schreiber, CEO of POSSEHL, who is responsible, among other things, for the SME business division, sees the acquisition of Gabler as a further confirmation of the company strategy of POSSEHL: “We acquire companies to keep them over the long term and to develop them sustainably and profitably, not just to sell them again in the short term. We also keep the company name and the operational independence of the individual companies. This makes us different from many other investors. In addition, our companies can always rely on the strength and cohesion of the POSSEHL Group.” Regarding the acquisition of Gabler, Schreiber adds: “It goes without saying that we are very pleased with the fact that Gabler will be another company at our Lübeck headquarters in the POSSEHL Group.”
“Over the past decades, we have achieved a lot with Gabler. However, further growth and increasing internationalisation require a strong and powerful shareholder. With PMB, we have found an owner who will lead the two companies securely into future and will maintain the location and jobs in Lübeck over the long term. The latter is particularly important to me.”Sören Kayser, CEO and majority shareholder of Gabler Maschinenbau GmbH
