Having previously represented Argos Soditic with respect to their investment in BMF Group in 2011, Baker McKenzie advised Argos Soditic in connection with their exit. The founding Bartholet family will remain invested and chairman Roland Bartholet will continue to strive for growth with his new financial partner. A strategic objective of the transaction was to enable the company to further enhance its strategic development in China and other growth regions in Asia.
The Baker McKenzie team who advised Argos Soditic comprised of Martin Anderson and Jingjin Guo.
BMF, headquartered in Flums, Switzerland, is a leading international engineering and production company active in the fields of aerial cableway systems, hi-tech aerial passenger transport systems, amusement park facilities, as well as mechanical engineering and metal processing. Founded 55 years ago by the Bartholet family, the company has developed very specific core competences in the engineering and production of rope-based transport systems and is today the third largest ropeway manufacturer and employees more than 320 people.
The Baker McKenzie team is pleased to have accompanied Argos Soditic in their successful investment and great achievements in the ropeway industry.
