Hübner Schlösser & Cie advised the Sellers
Hübner Schlösser & Cie (HSCie) exclusively advised the shareholders of Reifen Baierlacher KG in their sale of the company to Goodyear Group. The management team, including managing partner Manuel Baierlacher, will remain with the company and, together with the new investor, will continue to actively promote Reifen Baierlacher’s growth strategy in the future.
With this transaction, Goodyear is further expanding its sales and distribution structure, increasing the added value of its products and brands and strengthening its presence in an important key market.
Reifen Baierlacher will continue to operate with a high degree of independence and flexibility, maintain its mid-sized customer- and employee-focus and at the same time benefit from the strong brand awareness and structures of a globally active tire manufacturer.
“This transaction means the tie-in of one of Germany’s leading tire trading companies with one of the world’s most well-known tire brands. The combination with Goodyear will enable Baierlacher to further roll out its successful business model and position itself even more strongly in a consolidating market environment. We are pleased to have advised the Baierlacher family in the sale process,” said Sabine Moeller, partner at HSCie.
HSCie advised the sellers in all steps of the sale process.

Throughout the entire process we received extremely competent, friendly and goal-oriented support. The professionalism and competence of HSCie was impressive.
