Are you the owner of such a company and would like professional help creating your marketing strategy? For example, is your succession plan unresolved, or do you want to release your tied-up capital? Do not hesitate to contact us.

Ensuring the right sale of a company (which may be your life’s work) is a sensitive and labour-consuming task. Often, such tasks require 2 years or more. However, by our process-oriented approach, we strive for a significant reduction of these long periods while still achieving outstanding results.
If necessary, we can market also worldwide, by involving our supra-regional associated partners. We are in the position to create and provide all necessary information for marketing –: documents, presentations, etc. – very quickly and to submit them in a professional layout.
