The Navigator Group invests in the form of majority stakes in small and medium-sized European industrial companies. The geographical focus is on Western and Central Europe.
Tilman Schäfer and Moritz Müller, Managing Directors of the Abel+Schäfer Group agree: "As a manufacturer of pâtisserie specialties in the frozen segment, FLOREPI enjoys an excellent reputation in France. The high-quality products, the long-standing attractive customer base and the efficient production at an advantageous location provide a very good basis for the further development of the company by the Navigator Group."
