As one of the leading manufacturers of solutions for industrial automation, the in Bavarian located GÜDEL Intralogistics GmbH (also known as GDI), founded in 1980 as WVG Kainz GmbH, had been part of the Swiss Güdel Group AG since 2010. The Customer portfolio include renowned companies such as Haribo, Edeka, Kaufland, Coop, Tönnies. Especially the GDI washing systems play a particularly important role in food processing, as comprehensive cleaning of the reusable crates is essential. By the end of 2019, Allert & Co. was able to successfully complete the sale of all shares in GDI to DaCapo2 GmbH, located in Berlin. From our point of view, GDI fitted very well into the portfolio of the German Private Equity Company DaCapo2, which already had a plant engineering company for automation solutions for the food processing industry "on board" with the EMDE Group.
