Future-oriented partnership between two family businesses
KOBRA Formen GmbH was founded by Rudolf Braungardt more than 30 years ago and has become the world’s leading mold manufacturer. With around 500 employees worldwide – around 400 at the headquarters in Germany and 6 subsidiaries in Europe and North America as well as sales partners in Canada, Europe and Asia, we work in a technologically ground-breaking way in the concrete product industriy. We are proud of the impressive development and thank especially our employees as well as our customers, who are the key for such a success.
KOBRA is a medium-sized company – our success is largely based on healthy and sustainable development strategies. This also includes setting up the company for the next generations. We already started a few years ago with the strengthening of our management with Jan Streckenbach, Heike Gießmann and Stefanie Schaarschmidt, who manage the company together with the managing partner Holger Stichel.
We are very glad that we can continue to build the expansion of the KOBRA Group with a strong partner on shareholders’ level. Rieker Investment GmbH acquired company shares in KOBRA with effect from September 1st, 2022. Rieker stands for long-term and industry-open investments in medium-sized companies. Both companies are family-owned with a long tradition and a common approach to corporate management. Values as sustainability, healthy growth, innovation and quality – are the basis of our cooperation. As part of the Rieker Investment family, we are positioned for the future decades and can continue our corporate strategies in the same way.
The operational business will continue to be organized unchanged by our international team. For our employees this offers a secure job and numerous development opportunities in a healthy company. All internal company structures will remain in place in the same way.
Our customers and business partners will be supported by all known contact persons as usual. We look forward to a continued successful future, which we will shape together – with our team, our customers and business partners.
