About the deal
The forteq group is a global supplier of highly complex plastic components that primarily supplies the automotive industry and the healthcare sector. In order to fully concentrate on the development of its successful, fast-growing automotive business, the forteq Group wants to focus its management capacity and financial resources on this business. It has therefore sold its healthcare business, launched some 20 years ago, to Liberta Partners, a multi-family holding located in Munich, German, on 25 November 2020.
forteq’s healthcare division had contributed around 15% to the Group’s total sales with approximately 100 employees. The healthcare division which produces complex drug delivery devices for large pharma and medtech players had performed well over the past years and with many secured development and industrialization projects it is well prepared for the next important stage in its expansion plan.
Liberta Partners was founded in 2016 and is a multi-family holding company based in Munich. Liberta Partners invests in companies in German-speaking countries with clear operational and strategic development potential, particularly in succession situations and corporate spin-offs. These are actively developed within the framework of the long-term “100% Core & Care” concept and benefit from Liberta Partners’ innovative entrepreneurial understanding. The Liberta Partners team currently consists of 12 employees working in M&A, Operations and Legal, as well as an active industry advisory board.
