Welcoming the lightning experts: Blitzableiterbau Wimmer joins FABRI
With Blitzableiterbau Wimmer GmbH from Euskirchen in North Rhine-Westphalia, the FABRI Group has added a successful business specialising in lightning protection systems to its ranks.
“From the outset, our communication and interaction has been marked by openness and honesty”, states Thomas Waag, the CFO of FABRI. “For such a well-established business and its highly competent and motivated management team to join the FABRI Group is a real win for us. We are delighted to welcome Blitzableiterbau Wimmer and its employees into the FABRI family.”
Founded in 1980, Blitzableiterbau Wimmer GmbH plans and installs second-generation lightning protection and earthing systems, particularly for commercial customers. The company enjoys an excellent reputation in Cologne and the surrounding region, and is one of the larger operations in this niche segment. Every year, the team of 25 highly dedicated and experienced personnel completes around 800 projects while also working on a number of long-term maintenance contracts.
“I cannot imagine a better partner for my business”, proclaims managing director and previous shareholder Jürgen Wimmer. “This is precisely the succession solution that I was looking for, for my company and my employees: independent and autonomous working with the security of a group structure.
I am already looking forward to swapping ideas and experiences within the Group.”
Alongside Jürgen Wimmer, a second director was appointed for the operational management of the company some years ago in the form of Dirk Pichler, a long-standing and highly experienced employee. The foundation for the company’s succession, and consequently the future of Blitzableiterbau Wimmer GmbH, was thus set at an early stage.
