VHF - Deutsche Beteiligungs AG acquires stake in vhf Group

The German mechanical engineering specialist for dental laboratories and dental practices as well as industry and sign making gets a strong partner at its side for the further growth.

Ammerbuch, August 3, 2022: The vhf Group sets an important course for its growth. In the future, Deutsche Beteiligungs AG (DBAG) will hold about one fifth of the shares of vhf camfacture AG. The latter will act as the holding company of the group in the future.

With DBAG, vhf has brought on board a strong and solid partner based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The close and long-term commitment is based on deep mutual trust. DBAG finances Long-Term Investments exclusively from its balance sheet and thus does not invest alongside a DBAG fund. The investment horizon of a Long-Term Investment extends beyond the usual term of a private equity fund. “The signing of the agreement is based on a thorough review of our business model and proves to our stakeholders that we are on the right track with our strategic decisions”, says Frank Benzinger, CEO of vhf camfacture AG.

Further, Mr. Benzinger emphasizes not only the financial aspect, but particulary the wider value contribution of DBAG: “Together with our new shareholder, we are well positioned to achieve our growth targets and to also structurally improve our company. Together, we can move forward faster.” The aim of the investment is to support the company’s further international growth and to achieve capital market readiness.

“We are delighted that we have once again earned the trust of the shareholders of a company with a tailor-made equity solution,” says Jannick Hunecke, member of the DBAG Management Board, on the signing of the agreement. “We are investing into a company with very strong internal value creation that services a structurally growing and barely cyclical market, and that has shown highly profitable growth in the past – this is what makes the investment so attractive for DBAG, especially considering the current environment.”
