The Mosolf Group ha acquired the vehicle logistics and fleet service provider, Autokontor Bayern GmbH. This acquisition leads to the Mosolf Group broadening its corporate network by adding eight more technical and logistics sites and is expanding its fleet by 130 special car transporters.
Autokontor Bayern GmbH, headquartered in Buch (Bavaria) will strengthen Mosolf’s network and further enhance its expertise. Dr Jörg Mosolf, CEO of the MOSOLF Group, says: “The integration of Autokontor Bayern is reinforcing our position in an environment where markets are becoming more specialist and consolidating.”
Bernd Sauter, Managing Director and the main shareholder of Autokontor Bayern GmbH, adds, “Autokontor Bayern has developed into a leading company in the sector during the last 15 years. The Mosolf Group is not only taking over modern technology and efficient logistics sites, but also more than 300 qualified and highly motivated employees and an experienced and skilled management team.”
While the current co-shareholder Roland Kuch will continue to work as the managing director at Autokontor Bayern after the takeover, the main shareholder Bernd Sauter is leaving the company. Mosolf is not only gaining the skills of the AKB team by taking over Autokontor Bayern, but also a total of eight new business locations at Buch (Bavaria), Schweitenkirchen (Bavaria), Schöneck (Hessen), Erlensee (Hessen), Zörbig (Saxony-Anhalt), Dortmund (North Rhine-Westphalia), Lüdersfeld (Lower Saxony) and Buxtehude (Lower Saxony).
The Mosolf transport fleet will grow by a further 130 special car transporters and 32,000 car parking spaces as a result of the purchase. In addition to the storage of vehicles, five of the eight business sites also provide workshop services like PDIs, vehicle preparation or mechanical, coating and bodywork operations on a total surface area measuring approx. 8,000 square metres.
Jörg Mosolf is looking forward to the future cooperation with Autokontor Bayern. “AKB is a successful, professionally managed company and is a valuable addition to our current activities in our vehicle logistics and fleet business. An experienced team will work closely with the AKB colleagues at the sites during the next few weeks so that the managers and employees feel part of the Mosolf team as quickly as possible.”
