Mechanical and plant engineering is one of the core competences of the German economy. There is hardly any other industry in which so many "hidden champions" can be found. These are mostly medium-sized companies that are world market leaders in their niche, but remain largely under the radar of the public. Their success can also be traced back to the basic framework conditions. Engineers from German universities are in great demand internationally, and German plants are still equated with high quality abroad. However, the mechanical engineering industry also faces numerous challenges. Trade barriers, protectionism, global conflicts and the shortage of skilled workers are increasingly creating uncertain future scenarios. The ongoing digitalization in an Industry 4.0 also has an impact on production, automation and assembly and is associated with investments that should not be underestimated. The digital change, in combination with a high pressure to innovate, means that in the future, more than ever before, fast time-to-market, innovative solutions, efficiency and quality will be more important. In this industry-wide phase of upheaval, it may make sense for strategic reasons to consider selling your own business or acquiring another company. Many mid-sized entrepreneurs are also concerned about the question of succession.
