"Looking back, I am actually impressed by the scope and complexity that a structured and international sales process brings along. Oaklins' German team acted as sparring partner at eye level and showed a high level of expertise and experience throughout the overall sale process. Arranging my succession with Hitachi Capital as future shareholder therefore fully complies with my plans and expectations."Andreas Maske, Shareholder of Maske Group
