||29/07/2021: Change of Ownership
The limited partners signed the contract for the sale of their shares in HMN Beteiligungsgesellschaft & Co. KG, the parent company of E.I.S. Electronics GmbH, to the French company C&K Aerospace SAS. C&K is an investment company of the private equity firm SunCapital Partners and a market leader in high-reliable electromechanical switches and connectors. The sale is subject to the permission of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
||The member of the German Bundestag for the constituency of Bremen II - Bremerhaven, Mr. Uwe Schmidt, and his research assistant, Ms. Katja Brößling, visited the EISE at the company headquarters in Bremerhaven on November 11th, 2020.
During the two-hour visit, Mr. Schmidt familiarized himself with the aerospace and defense projects at EISE and the areas of responsibility of the employees. The member of the Bundestag was impressed by the company's range of services - top craftsmanship on an industrial scale - made in Bremerhaven. The management and the works council presented the effects of the Covid-19 crisis on the company and the handling of the hygiene measures. The management was confident that it would be able to master the crisis on its own without aid loans or the use of the economic stabilization fund. The massive drop in sales in quarters 2 and 3 of over 70% was a serious challenge, which was met in a socially acceptable manner, among other things, through consistent use of short-time working. Political support would be necessary to ensure a fair division of work packages between Germany and France in important space and defense projects.
E.I.S. Electronics GmbH rejuvenates the management
Effective February 1, 2020, Cezary Pilarski was appointed as additional managing director of E.I.S. Electronics GmbH.
This measure realigns the areas of responsibility: Thomas Hauschild will take over the technical area (CTO: projects, programs, engineering and EASA), Cezary Pilarski the production area (COO: manufacturing Bremerhaven and Achim, supply chain, order control and IT) and Burkhard Müller the Headquarters (CEO: Finance and Controlling, Human Resources, Marketing and Quality Management).
Objective is a clear definition of responsibilities and area allocation, considering teamwork promotion and personal initiative with focus on resource conservation, CO2, health and personal development. Both the challenges of industry and society and the growth-related increase in complexity with greater confidence will be mastered by involving our customers and all managers and employees.
The goal is to strengthen the future viability of the EIS: to take good care of our customers and thus continue to grow and to offer safe and attractive jobs. We look forward to tackling this with you!
