Florian Knell, CEO of the RAPS Group, is pleased with the conclusion of the contract. “Part of our growth strategy is not only to grow by our own efforts, but also greatly expand our competence through acquisitions. Here, the purchase of Salz Centrale is another huge step forward,” he said. Knell also predicts good opportunities for RAPS to make further acquisitions in the future.
Dirk Carstensen, founder of Salz Centrale Hamburg, feels the time has come for a change after more than 20 years as managing director: “It is a stroke of luck that we came to RAPS through our close relationship with BIOVA. I am sure that I am leaving my life’s work in good hands and that my long-standing customers will continue to be well looked after.”
Raphael Deckert, managing director of BIOVA, is happy about the development, too, and is looking forward to integrating the new partner at its site near Stuttgart: “With Salz Centrale, we are not only welcoming friends to our Wildberg facility, but also further expanding our excellent market position for high-quality specialty salts and strengthening our European distribution.”
