As part of a strategic development, Mubea is taking over approximately 1000 employees at the German production site in Oberpfaffenhofen and the Hungarian production site in Eger. Both sites will generate sales of approximately EUR 200 million in 2023.”

The Hengeler Mueller team included lawyers in Berlin, Munich, Brussels, and Frankfurt.
