Telescope Advisory Partners acted as an advisor to Inflection Investment Partners in conducting commercial due diligence on the management buyout (MBO) of Knürr GmbH (Knürr), a subsidiary of Vertiv Holdings Co., the publicly traded US corporation. Knürr offers a comprehensive portfolio of high-quality equipment for the control room and control center environment.

With over 40 years of experience in the field of mission-critical control room equipment, Knürr plans, develops and manufactures perfectly adapted solutions for public and industrial security control centers including production/ process control stations, network control centers, traffic control centers and command/ situation centers, among others. With its headquarters in Arnstorf, Bavaria, and currently ~90 employees, Knürr has a long history of innovation and is recognized for its commitment to quality and customer service. Renowned public and industrial organizations across a diverse range of industries depend on the company’s products to support their mission-critical operations. Knürr, once part of Vertiv Integrated Systems GmbH, is returning to its roots with this MBO and promises to continue its long tradition of innovative control room solutions. Vertiv Holdings Co., the parent company of Vertiv Integrated Systems GmbH and listed on the New York Stock Exchange (VRT), has agreed to this remarkable step with Knürr.

Inflection Investment Partners specializes in developing, structuring, and implementing management buyouts, boasting a long history of empowering management teams to become successful entrepreneurs. The firm has a proven track record of helping its portfolio companies achieve remarkable growth and exploit their full potential. Inflection Investment Partners prioritizes investing in companies with exceptional management teams, attractive market positions, and sustainable growth potential.

“We are excited to have supported Inflection Investment Partners on this management buyout of Knürr, which designs, develops, and manufactures mission-critical control room solutions for public and industrial organizations. Knürr will be able to take full advantage of favourable market dynamics and further expand its service offering. We look forward to the future developments of this strong partnership and congratulate Inflection Investment Partners, Knürr and its management on this important next step.”
