A BDO Legal Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH transaction team led by Düsseldorf partner Thorsten Schumacher, advised the shareholders of Teba GmbH & Co KG, one of the leading specialists for blinds based in Duisburg, on the sale of the company to DIK Deutsche Industriekapital.

DIK Deutsche Industriekapital (DIK) has acquired 100% of Teba GmbH & Co KG (Teba), a German family-owned company in the blinds sector, as part of a share deal. Teba is a leading manufacturer of interior and exterior blinds and sun protection systems based in Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia. The company has been manufacturing roller blinds, venetian blinds, pleated blinds, honeycomb pleated blinds, vertical blinds and panel blinds by hand using state-of-the-art production technology for over 85 years. With over 300 employees, Teba is an important part of Duisburg as an industrial centre. In 2023, the company served more than 5,000 customers and produced around 440,000 customised systems.

The transaction enables Teba to reposition itself sustainably and pursue a growth strategy. In addition, Teba can strengthen its position in the market and continue to manufacture outstanding products "Made in Germany". The change of ownership has made it possible to secure jobs in the important industrial area around Duisburg. "We are very pleased to continue Teba's successful path together with DIK. This transaction allows us to refocus on our core business and our customers and to drive innovation in the sun shading sector," says Reinhard Bühne, CEO of Teba.

DIK is an independent investment company focussing on the acquisition of medium-sized industrial companies in Europe. Since 2015, DIK has been investing in industrial companies that are undergoing succession planning or find themselves in a special situation despite having a healthy core business. The company focuses on long-term investments with the aim of sustainable optimisation and stable growth.
