FORUM Family Office ("FORUM") has acquired the majority of the shares of Nutricon Umweltschutztechnik GmbH ("Nutricon"), based in Karlsruhe, Germany. Since its foundation in 1998, Nutricon has developed into one of the leading distributors of chemicals for wastewater treatment in Germany. In addition to precipitants and flocculants, numerous special products are offered, combined with intensive application advice.
With 8 employees, the company generates sales of over € 20 million. This is made possible by a lean and unbureaucratic corporate structure and intelligent partnerships with suppliers. Nutricon thus offers its customers both a remarkable price/performance ratio and exceptional supply and delivery stability. The market is rewarding this positioning with significant growth rates in sales.
Nutricon expands FORUM's existing water technology group to 6 companies. Approaches for closer cooperation arise in particular with our subsidiary cobos Fluid Services GmbH, which is active in the wastewater treatment segment for industrial customers.
As always, FORUM's continuation concept provides for the retention of the existing corporate strategy in all essential aspects.
The managing director Georg Buser will continue the business, supported by Thomas Strobel in sales. Dr. Hermine Göhr will build up her planned future successor competence and hand it over to her in the medium term. All employees will of course be taken over.
"With FORUM, a strong partner takes over the shares of Dr. Göhr and Mr. Strobel without changing the concept of Nutricon. We will benefit from the group's experience in many areas and in return bring additional professional expertise to the FORUM family. A win-win for both sides!" - Georg Buser
