Gabler Thermoform

Location: Lübeck, Germany

Sector: Packaging industry

Key industries: Food industry

Acquisition year: 2013

The Lübeck-based Gabler Thermoform GmbH & Co. KG was taken over completely by PMB in September 2013. Gabler Thermoform GmbH & Co. KG is a well-known producer of thermoforming machines for the packaging industry – with a focus on food packaging, such as yoghurt and margarine cups. The product range extends from compact single machines to large-area complete systems with extrusion and process chaining. 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 area, 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.”
“With Possehl Mittelstandsbeteiligungen as the new owner, we can systematically implement our innovation strategy and expand our market position in the long term.”Peter Grolla, CEO
