Orrick advised Rattay Group on the acquisition of UK-headquartered Arctrend Ltd. The transaction is part of a succession plan in which the previous management will be involved.
Udo Rattay, Managing Director of Rattay Group, said: "We were extremely satisfied with the advice given by Orrick and impressed how seamlessly the colleagues from Germany and England worked together in this transaction. Professionalism, flexibility, commitment and a pragmatic orientation towards finalizing the transaction really convinced us."
Rattay Group produces metal hoses, hose lines and metal compensators for all industrial sectors and has locations in Germany, Austria, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Hungary and England. Arctrend Ltd., inter alia using the "Arcflex" brand, is an established English manufacturer of flexible hoses, metallic bellows and compensators. With the acquisition of the company, Rattay Group intends to further develop its UK operations.
