In 2022, our LEO II Fund – advised by DUBAG – acquired and carve-out the chain drive business from the stock-listed conglomerate Schaeffler Gruppe. The DUBAG team conducted the carve-out of the automotive supplier, establishing Catensys as a successful stand-alone entity.
Watch our Operations Executive Dr. Markus Ottmüller and the DUBAG Partner Christoph Mödder share their experiences with the carve-out of Catensys.
A short video about a long-term success story:
With around 560 employees, Catensys ranks among the leading global suppliers for chain dirve systems.
Chain drives systems are installed as part of the drive system in the internal combustion engines of passenger cars and other vehicles such as motorcycles as well as modern and environmentally friendly hybrid drives.Being an integral part of a drivetrain, the chain drive systems ensure smooth running and reduced fuel consumption along the entire life cycle of a vehicle.
Commercial activities in chain drive systems have been expanding within the Schaeffler Group since 1986. Due to a strategic portfolio review, Schaeffler seeked the divestment of the business unit and choose DUBAG as the ideal partner for the company’s future.
Research and development as well as production take place at nine different locations in Europe, Asia and North and South America.
