Clearwater has advised the shareholders of Konrad Böhnlein GmbH & Co. KG (Konrad Böhnlein), a market leader for meat and sausage products in the Franconia region of Germany, on the sale of a majority stake to E3 Holding AG (E3 Holding), an industrial holding company focused on long-term investments in the SME sector. With the sale to E3 Holding, company owners Alexandra Böhnlein-Schaudienst and Bernd Böhnlein are securing the future of this successful and traditional company, for which no successors within the family were available.

Headquartered in Bamberg, Germany, Konrad Böhnlein is a market-leading manufacturer of meat and sausage products in the Franconia region, generating sales of €45m in 2022. The company works with more than 2,000 customers across various fields, including the gastronomy and food retail sectors, as well as butchers' shops within the framework of long-term partnerships, all of which demonstrate highly stable business development. With its products, Konrad Böhnlein is positioned as high-quality, proven by a large number of qualified specialists amongst their 160 employees.

Founded in 2021, E3 Holding is an entrepreneurially-managed industrial holding company that accompanies medium-sized companies as a long-term investor and partner. The focus is on economically sound, owner-managed companies with a turnover of €10-100m. E3 Holding has grown to over 100 employees, with headquarters in Biberach an der Riß, as well as bases in Frankfurt am Main, Renningen, Basel, and Stockholm.

Together with the management of Konrad Böhnlein, E3 Holding plans a series of actions to further develop the company. This includes boosting sales activities to increase regional market coverage. Significant investments in production and operations are also planned, which will expand capacities and further increase efficiency.

sausage products

We are very grateful to Clearwater for their assistance in finding the most suitable buyer for our family business and for supporting us throughout the whole sales process. With E3 Holding, we have found a new owner for our family business, who will sustainably invest in the company and drive its future development with a far-sighted vision. In addition, the sale enables me and my family to focus even more on our social commitments, for the future benefit of the region. I am very much looking forward to this.

Alexandra Böhnlein-Schaudienst, Shareholder, Konrad Böhnlein

It was a pleasure to work with the owners of Konrad Böhnlein and support them in finding a new partner. Konrad Böhnlein, with its regional market leadership positioning, is a very solid, economically sound company, whose significant growth potential will be further leveraged through targeted investments by E3 Holding.
