The Deal

KFP will join the BKW Engineering network which, in the context of a succession arrangement, provides the company with opportunities to further develop and adapt their service offering to increasingly larger and more complex projects in the fields of building construction, energy and infrastructure.

Through the acquisition, BKW Engineering will benefit from the extended geographical presence in Northern Germany and furthermore deepen its in-depth knowledge to strengthen its current service offering.

The Target

KFP, founded in 1972 and headquartered in Buxtehude, Germany, is one of the leading civil engineering companies in Northern Germany. The company offers a diverse set of services, ranging from structural engineering, construction physics and fire protection to testing and technical expert services. These “engineering services from a single source” range from the subsequent adaptation of buildings (construction in existing buildings) to the new construction of large-scale projects all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland (D-A-CH).
