Reading time ( words)

The ERNI Group, headquartered in Bruttisellen (CH), has sold the electronic manufacturing services (EMS) and central electrics business of ERNI Electronic Solutions GmbH & Co. KG, with around 60 employees, to FIDELITAS Industrieholding GmbH, Nurtingen.

As a subsidiary of FIDELITAS, INTUS Elektronik GmbH will continue the business operations in Goppingen-Eschenbach without restrictions and take over the employees. The main assets of ERNI Electronics Solutions GmbH & Co. KG were acquired as part of an asset deal.

The new Managing Director of INTUS Elektronik GmbH is Patrick Minsch, who has been successfully contributing to the operative business since mid-2017. Dr. Matthias Maier, who is responsible for the business of the INTUS parent company FIDELITAS, will support him during the transition period.

"With FIDELITAS, we are pleased to have found a buyer that on the one hand has a high level of industry expertise and on the other hand will further develop the EMS business as a strategic addition.” Rudolf Hausladen, CEO of the ERNI Group, explains the transaction. As a leading manufacturer of electronic connectivity solutions with a global network, ERNI's focus is on the automotive industry and industrial automation.

The FIDELITAS Industrieholding GmbH, Nurtingen, realizes company successions in South German mid-sized companies and has focused on companies in special situations. "We are convinced of the manufacturing possibilities and the know-how of the employees", says Dr. Matthias Maier, "and will intensively contribute to the development of the company's activities as a contract manufacturer for electronic applications from the first product idea to series production".
