Clearwater advises BACHL on the sale of BACHL Steinwolle to Kingspan

Clearwater advised BACHL Unternehmensgruppe (BACHL), one of the leading German players in the construction and building materials industry, on the sale of its stone wool factory, BACHL Steinwolle, to Irish building materials group Kingspan.

Founded in 1926 in Deching, in the Bavarian Forest, the BACHL group with over 3,000 employees is one of the most important players in the construction and building materials industry today. In addition to the German production sites, the company operates plants and trading branches in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, and Croatia. Following the initial production of bricks, a steady upward trend led to an expanded range of products and services for the construction and modernisation sectors. Besides the large business lines of insulation and plastics processing as well as the areas of building materials, construction elements, and precast concrete production, the construction sector consists of the divisions of building construction and civil engineering, road construction, future-proof houses, as well as turnkey industrial and commercial construction that remain a mainstay of the BACHL group.

The takeover by Kingspan will allow BACHL to focus more strongly on its core business in the future. The Irish building materials group intends to use the takeover to further expand its capacities and complete its range of insulation materials on the market. With the acquisition by Kingspan, the employees at the Ronneburg site of BACHL Steinwolle will also become part of the Irish building materials group.

Founded in 1965 in Ireland, the Kingspan group is a global leader in advanced insulation and building envelope solutions. Kingspan is organised around five operating divisions, consisting of insulated panels, insulation, light, air and water, data and flooring, as well as roofing and waterproofing, which together make a range of high-performance products to help deliver future-proof buildings. The group operates in more than 80 countries worldwide and employs 22,000 people. Kingspan’s mission is to accelerate a net zero emissions future-built environment with the well-being of people and the planet at its heart. With BACHL Steinwolle, the global building materials group is adding another insulation material to its portfolio which allows it to provide a full spectrum of solutions.

„Working with Clearwater as our M&A adviser proved essential for the swift and successful sales process. Clearwater’s support and professionalism were exemplary, leaving us highly delighted with the outcome. We are more than happy to have found a partner in Kingspan that will further drive the growth of BACHL Steinwolle.“ – Michael Küblbeck, CEO, BACHL

„This is a significant strategic investment for Kingspan, and we are delighted that such a modern facility is our first acquisition within mineral insulation. We will continue to build the capability to create a significant market presence in the sector and complete the envelope of our insulation offer to the market.“ – Ken Munro, Managing Director, Kingspan

„It was a great pleasure assisting the BACHL group throughout this rapid process. We firmly believe in the ideal synergy between BACHL Steinwolle and Kingspan. Thanks to both parties for the great collaboration during the process.“ – Axel Oltmann, Managing Partner, Clearwater
