At the beginning of the new year,we are pleased to announce that Kanalservice Gruppe has successfully acquired Jeschke Umwelttechnik GmbH. Jeschke Umwelttechnik is headquartered in Stutensee close to Karlsruhe, Germany, and has more than 30 highly trained employees in the field of sewer renovation. Jeschke Umwelttechnik has a unique expertise in the installation cured-in-place pipe liners and is a full -service provider in this field.

In recent years, the company has established itself as a leading player in the sewer renovation segment for public-sector customers in southwestern Germany. The cured-in-place pipe lining process is a common method for trenchless rehabilitation of buried, non-pressurized drainage networks, such as the sewer system. In the process, a fiberglass hose (tube liner) impregnated with synthetic resin is drawn into a tube and then cured by UV light. Kanalservice Gruppe, with headquarters in Switzerland, is the owner of Mökah Gruppe that offers sewer cleaning, inspection, renovation as well as suction and surface cleaning services with 170 employees.

“I am very happy that I found the ideal partner in Kanalservice Gruppe to further grow the company organically as well as for acquisitions. I am convinced that the acquisition lays the foundation for a successful, long-term collaboration. I am looking forward to the execution of our growth strategy in the coming years” says Steffen Jeschke, CEO and owner of Jeschke Umwelttechnik.

“We are delighted, that with Mr. Jeschke and his team we found proven experts in the cured-in-place pipe lining segment in southwestern Germany as a strategic addition to Kanalservice Gruppe.

Mr. Jeschke will continue his successful work as CEO of Jeschke Umwelttechnik and we are happy to welcome him as a shareholder of the group ”adds Ralf Flore, Managing Partner at Ufenau Capital Partners.

Sincerely, your Ufenau Team
