FGvW Advises Mesa Parts on Sale to Andlinger & Company

We have advised our long-standing client Mesa Parts GmbH on its sale to the new majority owner Andlinger & Company GmbH.

Mesa Parts, a fourth-generation family business with over 760 employees at sites in Lenzkirch (D), Nachod (CZ) and Lerma de Villada (MX), is one of the leading international developers and manufacturers of customised turned parts and assemblies for technology companies, particularly in the automotive and medtech sectors. Beyond that, Mesa Parts has invested in the in-house product development of hydrogen technology in recent years.

After 125 years of running the company, the owner family Meyer has decided to sell a majority stake to Andlinger & Company, as there is no one in the successor generation who will take on the corporate leadership.

Andlinger & Company, founded in 1976, is a private investment group specialising in majority shareholdings in medium-sized industrial companies with growth potential. Andlinger & Company consists of independent offices in Austria, the USA and Belgium.

Mesa Parts was advised by our cross-location M&A team led by our Freiburg partner Gerhard Manz. Shearman & Sterling acted on the buyer side.

Advisors to Mesa Parts:

Gerhard Manz, Partner (Lead, Corporate, M&A, Freiburg)
Barbara Mayer, Partner (Corporate, M&A, Freiburg)
Mike Weitzel, Local Partner (Commercial, Cologne)
