Betonbau Group

capiton acquires a majority stake in the Betonbau Group alongside its experienced management team, Mr. Volker Ernst and Mr. Thomas Sachers, from the SCHWENK Group in a carve-out transaction.

Betonbau Group, headquartered in Waghäusel, Germany, was established in 1963. Betonbau is the largest German provider of turnkey technical buildings such as transformer stations. The group employs a total of 900 FTEs across four sites in Germany and one site in Czech Republic, manufacturing its products for more than 1,000 public and private customers.


How it began

The capiton predecessor company was founded in the mid-1980s and capiton AG was established in 1999. In 2004, the company then became independent and self-governing following a management buy-out.
