Founded in 1999, the MHP Solution Group has evolved into a leading provider of supply chain and logistics software in the DACH region. Starting with a solution for the efficient dispatching of parcels, the portfolio has been extended over the last decade to include associated areas such as customs clearance, warehouse management and transport management. Today, the MHP Solution Group operates as an end-to-end provider of software and hardware along the entire supply chain, rounded off by a comprehensive consulting and business intelligence offering.
Along with the MHP brand, the Group comprises prestigious logistics software providers such as aisys, AZ, BNS, LogControl, TIA and TRANSDATA. Through acquisitions and organic growth, the MHP Solution Group has raised its revenues in recent years by 38 percent. Their 3,000+ customers from a range of different sectors largely operate in high-growth areas of e-commerce and logistics services.
“FSN Capital’s commitment has been envisaged as a long-term strategic partnership which will give the MHP Solution Group even more stability and security and will support us in our drive towards further development in the years ahead,” explains Jasmino Burkic, CEO of the MHP Solution Group. “We are convinced that FSN Capital, combined with Elvaston Capital, will offer us the experience and support we need to accelerate the corporate group’s growth,” Jasmino Burkic emphasises.
Robin Mürer, FSN Capital partner, views the MHP Solution Group as “an extremely attractive investment opportunity”. Given the increasing complexity of supply chains and the rapid increase of e-commerce, the demand for logistics software is growing extremely quickly, he says. “In this environment, the MHP Solution Group ranks as an acknowledged market leader very positively assessed by the customers and is therefore well positioned for further growth,” Robin Mürer comments. FSN Capital’s intention is “to work together with the management team and Elvaston Capital to accelerate MHP’s growth and win further market shares”.
