Mr Ilkin Bananyarli from PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH succeeded in finding an investor for the industrial services provider QSSL Industrieservice GmbH. The restructuring expert is selling the business operations with effect from 1 April 2019 to the well-known TRIGO Group. All of the 73 members of staff of the company in Fellbach near Stuttgart will be kept on. The new owner is TRIGO Böllinger Technik GmbH & Co. KG based in Bremen, a subsidiary of the TRIGO Group, which has its headquarters in France.
The corresponding contract was signed yesterday. The two parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality about the purchase price. The Local Court of Stuttgart opened the proceedings and appointed the PLUTA attorney Mr Ilkin Bananyarli as the insolvency administrator on 28 March 2019. He had previously acted as the provisional administrator for QSSL, since February 2019. “We are very pleased about the solution we have found. All of the main customers have remained loyal to the company in these challenging times. The staff has also shown great commitment and has pulled together with us to find a solution,” said Mr Bananyarli, who was supported in the proceedings by the business management expert Mr Michael Hieber.
On a growth course in Germany
TRIGO Böllinger Technik has been known in the German automotive market as a brand of the TRIGO Group since 2016. The company was able to achieve the first successes on its growth course in the last two years, while its range of services was continuously enlarged. The investment now made will allow the company to strengthen existing customer relations and to win new customers.
Mr Hans Gerd Düsterwald, TRIGO Executive Vice President Continental Europe, said, “The negotiations were very constructive. This takeover means that we are now in a position to continue on our growth path vigorously.”
The transaction will also be of benefit to the existing TRIGO sites in Stuttgart and Berlin and will allow the new sites in Fellbach and Mannheim to penetrate the market even more. “It is now important to integrate our new colleagues very well and very rapidly so that we can provide our existing and new customers with excellent services without any interruption and in well-known TRIGO quality,” added Goran Nikolic, Head of Automotive at TRIGO Böllinger with responsibility for operations.
