A finan­cial investor from the region takes over the most impor­tant assets of the insol­vent GEMAC — Gesellschaft für Mikro­elec­tron­ikan­wen­dung Chem­nitz mbH:“We have found an investor for the com­pa­ny who wants to pre­serve the loca­tion and the jobs”, con­firms Dirk Hüb­n­er, who will be respon­si­ble for the tech­ni­cal area of the com­pa­ny in the future. This is good news for the 70 employ­ees after the com­pa­ny went bank­rupt in Feb­ru­ary 2017. Insol­ven­cy admin­is­tra­tor Rüdi­ger Bauch from the law firm Schultze & Braun and his team led by lawyer Dr. Dirk Herzig have worked hard over the past few months to find a solu­tion for medi­um-sized busi­ness­es. Dur­ing this time, busi­ness oper­a­tions con­tin­ued unrestrictedly:“We would like to thank our cus­tomers, sup­pli­ers, busi­ness part­ners and employ­ees for sup­port­ing us and enabling us to make a fresh start in the first place,” reports Dirk Hüb­n­er. The law firm Schultze & Braun and ABG Con­sult­ing have also pro­vid­ed us with sub­stan­tial sup­port in the process.

Good future prospects for the medi­um-sized com­pa­ny

The ABG Con­sult­ing Part­ner GmbH & Co. KG was entrust­ed with the search for investors as part of an M&A process. With v-design GmbH from Dres­den, we have suc­ceed­ed in find­ing a region­al and strate­gic investor who wants to main­tain the core areas of GEMAC and fur­ther expand the busi­ness “, says Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Simon Leopold. We have held talks with a large num­ber of inter­est­ed par­ties in recent months. Ulti­mate­ly, the acqui­si­tion con­cept of v-design GmbH con­vinced all those involved. We are there­fore very pleased with the final solution:“As of July 31, 2017, the insol­ven­cy pro­ceed­ings are to be sus­pend­ed and the offi­cial restart will take place on August 1, 2017. v-design GmbH’s Man­ag­ing Direc­tor, Robert Her­mann, will strength­en the man­age­ment of GEMAC with imme­di­ate effect. As the own­er of a medi­um-sized Sax­on­ian hold­ing com­pa­ny, he has expe­ri­ence in realign­ing com­pa­nies and open­ing up new mar­kets for fur­ther growth. In the future, we will be con­cen­trat­ing pri­mar­i­ly on our own prod­ucts in the field of incli­na­tion sen­sors. In addi­tion, the EMS divi­sion, the busi­ness area with CAN diag­nos­tic sys­tems and devel­op­ment are to be fur­ther expand­ed,” reports Her­mann. The com­pa­ny enjoys an excel­lent rep­u­ta­tion on the mar­ket and has excel­lent growth oppor­tu­ni­ties thanks to its exten­sive range of prod­ucts and ser­vices and com­pre­hen­sive know-how.

The medi­um-sized com­pa­ny is now trad­ing under the name of GEMAC Chem­nitz GmbH.
