Mario Schreiber, Member of the Management Board at POSSEHL and responsible, among other things, for the business area of medium-sized investments, sees the acquisition of Gabler as a further confirmation of POSSEHL's corporate strategy: "We acquire companies in order to hold them for the long term and to develop them sustainably and profitably, and not to sell them again in the short term. We also preserve the company name and the operational independence of the individual companies. This sets us apart from many other investors. In addition, our companies can always rely on the strength and cohesion of the POSSEHL Group." With regard to the acquisition of Gabler, Schreiber adds: "We are of course particularly pleased that with Gabler, another company at our headquarters in Lübeck will belong to the POSSEHL Group in the future."
We have achieved a lot at Gabler in the past decades. However, further growth and increasing internationalization require a strong and potent shareholder. In PMB, we have found an owner who will lead both companies safely into the future and preserve the site and jobs in Lübeck in the long term. The latter is particularly important to me.
