To be among the best in the industry, you need will and determination. We have steered a bold course in order to achieve the new, ambitious goals we set ourselves, with a vision of our long-term future and always focused on quality and innovation – and our customers, partners and suppliers have been with us every step of the way.
This paragraph is from our mission statement, and the acquisition of Christof Holding AG’s 51% stake in PMS by Franz Grünwald and Alfred Krobath is the latest example of how it guides our actions. We have written a new chapter in our company story: after intensive preparatory work and negotiations, PMS is now a fully separate and independent business. The acquisition agreement was signed on 23 June 2017, and closing took place on 19 July 2017.
“We can look back on a successful history with PMS, and over these 12 years we have achieved a lot together. Time never stands still, so we now see this as an opportunity for PMS to face the challenges of the market as an independent and powerful business. We will continue to pool our expertise and work with each other on various projects. We wish the two Managing Directors, Alfred Krobath and Franz Grünwald, all the best and every success for the future development of PMS, and we look forward to a positive working relationship”, said Johann Christof Sr and Stefan Christof in an official statement.
