Beyond Capital Partners Fund II, a fund advised by the investment company Beyond Capital Partners GmbH (“BCP”), has acquired 100% of the shares in Braunschweig-based Clamex Gebäudereinigung GmbH (“Clamex”) through its portfolio investment Dr. Hoffmann Gebäudedienste GmbH (“Dr. Hoffmann”) and continues its expansion following the acquisition of 100% of the shares in Gebäudereinigung Daniel Baumann GmbH (“GDB”) in November 2022. The closing took place on June 5, 2023.
With this takeover, the entire Dr. Hoffmann Group is developing into an integrated facility cleaning specialist, which, with 2,400 employees in large parts of Germany and in around 100 cities, reliably and trustfully supports its customers from the public sector as well as (large) companies as a professional B2B service provider.
The complete range of services includes the classic areas of maintenance cleaning, facility services, special cleaning, service personnel provision, event and catering as well as janitorial services. Individual cleaning concepts and state-of-the-art cleaning equipment are just as standard as the implementation of and compliance with ESG-relevant criteria. As early as 2021, Dr. Hoffmann became climate-neutral.
With the acquisition of Clamex Gebäudereinigung GmbH, founded in 1973, the Dr. Hoffmann Group expands from southern Germany into large parts of the northern federal states, thus expanding its national reach as well as the relevance of being able to be active for its customers as a nationwide facility cleaning specialist.
Nathalie Zilinski, Managing Director of Clamex: “As a master craftsman and guild company, we specialise in the cleaning of facilities indoors and outdoors as well as in industrial and special cleaning. We attach great importance to sustainability in all areas of the company and we invest in the further development of our employees. In addition, we have special know-how in tender management and order processing. We see ourselves as an ideal complement to the Dr. Hoffmann Group.”
Marlène Sternbaum, Managing Director of the Dr. Hoffmann Group, is looking forward to the cooperation: “With 50 years of experience, profound know-how, 100% service orientation and sustainable facility services, Clamex is an asset to our Dr. Hoffmann Group.”
Steffen Kleinhenz-Sonnenschein, Managing Director of the Dr. Hoffmann Group, adds: “Clamex is the ideal partner for the Dr. Hoffmann Group due to its geographical orientation, diversified service portfolio, highest quality standards, balanced customer base and qualified employees. We are very pleased to have a strong supra-regional partner at our side in Clamex.”
Christoph D. Kauter, Founder and Managing Partner of Beyond Capital Partners: “The German cleaning market is growing steadily. With Clamex, we are seizing the potential to implement Germany-wide expansion, especially in metropolitan regions such as Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin. Part of this expansion strategy is also to bundle further profitable companies from the facility services segment under the umbrella of the Dr. Hoffmann Group.”
