Nord HOLDING (Hannover) has acquired the majority shareholding in Dr. Födisch Umweltmesstechnik AG. The other new investor is WMS Wachstumsfonds Sachsen III (Leipzig). The Födisch family remains a substantial part of the shareholder group and will thus actively help to shape the future development of the group together with the new majority owners. The founder, Dr. Holger Födisch, will continue to lead the group as a member of the management board. The transaction is still subject to the approval of several cartel offices.
