Vienna, 28 November 2022 – Fritz Müller, owner and CEO of successful Austrian logistics and transport company Müller Transporte GmbH relied on the legal advice of Wolf Theiss regarding the sale of a majority stake to new investor and partner Cube Infrastructure Fund III (“Cube Infrastructure”).
The Wolf Theiss team was led by partners Florian Kusznier and Andrea Gritsch, both Transactions, who were primarily supported by Zeno Grabmayr (Counsel), Martina Edlinger (Senior Associate, both Transactions), Klemens Kendler (Associate, Corporate/M&A), Stefan Wartinger (Counsel, Competition/Antitrust) and Matthias Unterrieder (Partner, Employment).
Over six decades, Müller Transporte has developed from a family business into one of the leading providers of temperature-controlled transport in Central Europe, focusing on food-pharmaceutical and high-security logistics. With its new investor Müller Transporte plans further expansion with the aim of becoming a supply-relevant, pan-European logistics provider as well as developing new services on a national and international level for its clients.
While Cube Infrastructure is taking a majority stake in the Austrian logistics and transport company, previous sole owner Fritz Müller remains a shareholder and further retains his position as sole CEO of Müller Transporte.
