Hilgers GmbH & Co KG becomes first FABRI business in Rhineland-Palatinate
The FABRI Group has added an established and successful business from Rhineland-Palatinate to its ranks in the form of Hilgers GmbH & Co KG, a specialist in the field of sanitation, heating and air-conditioning based in Daun in Germany’s Volcanic Eifel region. The purchase agreement was notarized in Cologne on Monday 17 July 2023.
“We are delighted to welcome Hilgers and its employees to the FABRI Group, thereby strengthening our position in the field of eco heating solutions and complete bathroom installations”, states Markus Zübert, CEO of FABRI. “This acquisition takes us one step closer to our medium-term goal of having FABRI represented in all German states.”
“With FABRI, I have gained the perfect partner for the ongoing success of my business”, explains managing director Dieter Hilgers. “Together, we can lay the foundation for the secure future of our employees and customers.”
Dieter Hilgers will remain with the company in his role as managing director. In the coming months, he will work with FABRI to identify a suitable successor and familiarise them with their operational management duties. Daniel Lörcks, who acts as an operational interface for the FABRI Group, underlines the benefits of this move: “Hilgers’ expertise and its geographical proximity to some of our other businesses gives us an excellent opportunity to take on joint projects with multiple members of the FABRI family.”
Hilgers GmbH & Co KG traces its roots back to 1869 and is now in its fourth generation as a family-run business. The specialist in air-conditioning/energy concepts and luxurious modern bathrooms serves customers within a 100-km radius of its headquarters – even operating as far afield as Luxembourg. Between the company management and its 18 highly dedicated employees, Hilgers boasts a wealth of experience. The company has always attributed great importance to the training and development of its employees and to ensuring a working atmosphere characterised by mutual respect and teamwork.
