Press release: Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Group takes over medifa
With effect from 08 June 2017, the Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Group, located in Munich, took over the medifa-hesse GmbH & Co. KG (Finnentrop). With immediate effect, Christian Keller and Dr. Wolfgang Hohnhaus (both managing partners) will act for the Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Group as successors to the former owner and managing director Gerhard Hesse. Gerhard Hesse, who had run the company since 1983, will retire from business due to his age.
The medifa-hesse GmbH & Co. KG is one of the leading producers of mobile operating tables and equipment. With approx. 90 employees and its clear commitment to „Quality made in Germany”, the company distributes its high-quality products worldwide. The export share amounts to more than 80 percent.
“It was very important for me to put the succession into strong and competent hands and that there was the interest to build and expand the company on a long-term basis. The Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Group is perfectly positioned to do that,” said Gerhard Hesse on the succession.
The Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Group is a steadily growing industry group focusing on the areas of medical technology, gastronomy equipment and stainless steel processing.
“Medifa is an internationally successful company with premium-class products. With the expansion of services and sales, we want to strengthen the brand on a long-term basis. At the same time, we are planning to exploit the full potential which will arise from the interaction with other companies in our group,” said Dr. Wolfgang Hohnhaus, the new managing director of medifa and co-founder of the Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Group.
The Stahl Metall and Medizintechnik GmbH (Rastatt), as the world’s largest producer of components for operating tables, has been part of the Hohnhaus & Jansenberger Gruppe since 2015. Another sister company, Stahl Hygienic Room Solutions GmbH (Ötigheim), is a specialist for stainless steel hygienic walls, doors and ceilings which are used to build operating theatres and are deployed in intensive care wards.
“For us, medifa is a valuable module to successfully increase our commitment in the field of medical technology. We look forward to the new possibilities and a good cooperation with the partners and clients as well as the complete medifa team,” stated Christian Keller, co-partner of medifa-hesse GmbH & Co. KG.
