Benchmark International is pleased to announce the acquisition of S&R Eisenmann GmbH by private investor, Marcel Brinkwirth.
The seller, S&R Eisenmann, based in Hemmingen, Germany, is a well-known brand in the automotive and tuning sector, manufacturing exhaust systems, catalyzers and roll over bars for sports cars in series and individual production. The company provides both to aftermarket customers and to Germany’s premium OEMs.
In January, private investor and MBI-candidate, Marcel Brinkwirth, took over 51% of the company’s shares and now serves as managing director. Mr. Brinkwirth has extensive experience, working for over 10 years in the automotive, consultancy and private equity sectors. He worked not only as an executive freelance consultant for Germany’s premium OEMs but also had several management positions during his career.
