  • Growth capital for the expansion of local capacities and the active consolidation of the nationwide market
  • Managing partners Robert Schliewin and Christopher Schmidt-Bleek continue to manage the business of the DARE Group

Funds advised by DPE Deutsche Private Equity (“DPE”) have invested in the DARE Group (“DARE”) in Berlin. DARE specializes in dismantling/demolition and pollutant remediation work as well as disposal of construction site waste. Founded in 2001, the company, with more than 70 employees and a 22,000 m² treatment plant for hazardous and non-hazardous waste with corresponding interim storage facilities according to BImSchG, is one of the leading providers of construction waste disposal in the greater Berlin area. The managing directors Robert Schliewin and Christopher Schmidt-Bleek will continue to manage the company as co-owners and implement the growth and consolidation strategy together with DPE. The parties have agreed not to disclose the details of the transaction.

Targeted growth strategy based on an integrated business model with high quality standards

DARE provides a wide range of construction and disposal services from a single source and can therefore reliably implement demanding and complex projects. Under the current management, DARE has more than tripled company performance since 2014 and has built a reputation as a quality leader. With the active support of DPE, DARE will continue to invest in the expansion of local capacities and actively shape the consolidation process of the industry in metropolitan areas throughout Germany. “DARE operates an excellently managed and scalable business in Berlin, with impressive project references. Building on this, DPE would like to support the management in further expansion. We are very much looking forward to bringing our experience with accelerated growth strategies in construction-related sectors to the partnership,” says DPE -Partner Mark Suderow. A whole series of investments show how successful DPE is in this. With the support of DPE, Elevion (technical building equipment for commerce and industry) was able to increase its sales volume from EUR60 million to EUR330 million within six years. Calvias (technical building equipment in the heating/air conditioning/ventilation area), Primutec (roof covering and insulation as well as facade construction and lightning protection), DEUBIS (specialist for building repairs) and B plus L (construction site fitter and operator of container systems) currently include a number of other promising companies Growth platforms for DPE’s investment portfolio. “We are pleased to have found the ideal partner in DPE, who shares our ambitions and values, especially when it comes to our employees. With an experienced investor like DPE, we are able to grow even faster in terms of space and increased efficiency to invest,” emphasizes Robert Schliewin, Managing Director of DARE.

Open to companies that want to be part of the growth strategy

The market for dismantling/demolition, pollutant remediation and disposal is still very fragmented in view of the overall volume of the industry. DARE is excellently positioned as a driver of consolidation in this growing market. Mark Suderow therefore emphasizes: “We have already had some promising discussions in the industry and are open to other companies that would like to be part of this growth story, whether in the form of an acquisition, succession solution, investment option or partnership.”
