Munich, 16th August 2018 - The Acco­un­ting and Con­sul­ting firm Ebner Stolz advi­sed the owner-mana­ged MAJA-Maschi­nen­fa­brik Her­mann Schill on the sale of the com­pany to the Ice­lan­dic lis­ted Marel-Group. Ebner Stolz sup­por­ted MAJA with the pre­pa­ra­tion of a Finan­cial and Tax Fact­book as well as with exten­sive Sell Side Sup­port.

Since its foun­da­tion in 1955, MAJA-Maschi­nen­fa­brik Her­mann Schill GmbH & Co. KG has been a highly inno­va­tive manu­fac­tu­rer of food pro­ces­sing machi­nery, spe­cia­li­zing in skin­ning and por­tio­ning with main focus on the meat mar­ket as well as ice machi­nes for the pre­sen­ta­tion of fresh food. Based in Kehl-Gold­scheuer in Ger­many, on a group level MAJA has around 200 emp­loyees and gene­ra­ted reve­nues of about EUR 30 mil­lion in 2017.

The pro­ven MAJA mana­ge­ment team around the bro­thers and mana­ging share­hol­ders Rein­hard and Joa­chim Schill will remain wit­hin the com­pany.
“To­ge­ther with Marel and with our high qua­lity and inno­va­tive pro­duct port­fo­lio, we believe that we can add more value to our glo­bal custo­mers, part­ners and emp­loyees by offe­ring a com­pre­hen­sive and cut­ting edge pro­duct and ser­vice port­fo­lio. Toge­ther we will play an even more important role in the inter­na­tio­nal mar­kets for skin­ning/der­in­ding, por­tion con­trol sli­cing and ice making solu­ti­ons.“, says Rein­hard Schill.
Joa­chim Schill adds: “For me and my bro­ther, the sale of the com­pany to Marel is an opti­mal suc­ces­sion solu­tion also for our qua­li­fied emp­loyees at the Kehl-Gold­scheuer loca­tion. As part of the glo­bal Marel-Group, we have ideal con­di­ti­ons to mas­ter the glo­bal chal­len­ges and eco­no­mic con­di­ti­ons in our tar­get mar­kets and to offer our emp­loyees a sta­ble future.“, adds Joa­chim Schill.
