Drinkuth AG takes over traditional company Menck Fenster – 80 employees saved

For almost 140 years Menck Fenster has been building individually tailored and energy-efficient wooden windows, doors and facades for the German and international market. By using state-of-the-art CNC production machines, the company is able to manufacture the CO² neutral material wood precisely and on time according to customer requirements.

In April 2022, the company filed for insolvency in self-administration at the Hamburg District Court.

Centuros supported the self-administration (Mr. Jan Ockelmann |SGP Nord) and the administrator Dr. Tjark Thies (Reimer Rechtsanwälte) exclusively in the search for investors within the framework of an M&A process.

Drinkuth AG takes over the business operations of Menck Fenster GmbH as part of an asset deal. Through a successful takeover, the continued existence of the company at the production site in Wittenförden near Schwerin, as well as 76 jobs, could be saved.

We are pleased to have been able to support Menck Fenster GmbH in its search for an investor and wish the purchaser and the employees taken over every success for the future.
