Simon Hegele acquires majority stake in Oehler Verpackung GmbH


published on 04/03/2023

  • Acquisition of 51 percent of the company shares
  • 49 percent remain with the current managing director
  • Specialization of the service portfolio in packaging development and production

Simon Hegele Gesellschaft für Logistik und Service mbH acquired 51 percent of the shares in the Leipzig-based packaging specialist Oehler Verpackung GmbH in mid-March 2023. 49 percent of the shares remain with the current managing director Thomas Bach. With the share acquisition, the logistics service provider is taking a further step in expanding its expertise in the development, manufacture and optimization of wooden transport packaging and export packaging for air, sea and truck freight.

The traditional medium-sized company Oehler Verpackung GmbH specializes in the entire process chain along customer-specific packaging solutions. Thus, consulting and planning are just as much a part of the service portfolio as packaging development, design and production right through to the packaging process. Oehler currently employs more than 60 people.

Following the successful acquisition of shares in Georg Schrepfer GmbH in May 2022, the acquisition of shares in Oehler Verpackung GmbH is a further step for Simon Hegele to strengthen the company's in-house expertise in packaging development and production and to offer customers an even more specialized service portfolio. 

Oehler Verpackung GmbH and Georg Schrepfer GmbH, since 2017 connected by joint managing partner Thomas Bach, already complement each other and have been able to jointly expand their service portfolios over the past five years. 

Thomas Bach is pleased about the further joint development with Simon Hegele: "We have already been working together with Simon Hegele for a long time and have been able to successfully expand many customer projects together. The current step of taking over shares is a growing together of two specialized companies with the goal of offering jointly developed customer solutions on the market."

Karim-Oliver Darvich, Managing COO of Simon Hegele in the Industry and Retail divisions, is also convinced that the share acquisition is associated with considerable advantages for both companies and their customers: "We are not only united by a company history of over 100 years in each case, but also by the same "spirit"! We are therefore certain that a large number of our customers will benefit considerably from the combination. The acquisition of shares is an important step in the successful further development of both companies."
