Exit: 2016, Equita Holding


SCHOCK has invented the granite sink and has since been the worldwide technological and quality leader in this sector. More than 60 % of all sinks manufactured worldwide are based on the production technique developed by SCHOCK. Based on the quartz-acrylic compound patented by SCHOCK, a premium product is created, three times as hard as natural granite and superior in product performance to sinks made of other material (e.g. stainless steel or ceramics). SCHOCK`s product line comprises sinks for every kitchen style and personal taste: modern, classic or country-style. Customers in more than 70 countries rely on products made by SCHOCK, which are exclusively manufactured at the company`s headquarters in the Bavarian Forest.

The acquisition:

Equita GmbH & Co. Holding KGaA acquired the SCHOCK-Group in 2010, the management invested alongside EQUITA.

The implementation of the growth plan:

HQ Equita will continue to expand SCHOCK in collaboration with the management, and is relying on the established know-how both of the SCHOCK-Group and its employees. An important focal point of growth will be the internationalization of the business, especially in the USA and Asia, as well as the further development of domestic sales..
