Modern Management

with many years of experience

MIB Industriebeteiligungen GmbH & Co. KG

MIB is a young venture – but the knowledge and experience of its management add up to more than 40 years of experience in medium-sized businesses and industrial investments. Founded in Wuppertal in April 2019 and with a focus on growth, MIB specialises in the acquisition, long-term support and continuation of medium-sized manufacturing companies. MIB’s management provides expert and supportive assistance to the organisations’ local management in the sustainable further development of its subsidiaries, while at the same time leaving it with the space it needs to successfully manage the company’s operational destiny.

Experience gained and practised over decades, a far-reaching network and long-established business dealings with each other characterise a high level of appreciation in terms of cooperation as well as a fast, entrepreneurally decision-making culture and, against a solid financial background, make MIB a reliable partner in solving succession issues. For owners, shareholders and external managers alike.


To be successful, you need experience, competence and qualifications. At MIB, people have joined together to form specialists whose trust in each other has grown over decades of working together on joint success and who continue to carry their cooperation forward. This gives them a foundation that is as durable as it is valuable, enabling them to accompany or support the acquired companies in all matters in a well-versed and results-oriented manner.

Christoph Borges, a qualified engineer, brings comprehensive knowledge from industry as well as technical and organisational consulting to MIB. Together with his former managing director colleague Robert Spartmann († 05.04.2023), he developed the model of long-term company support over half a decade.

He draws his know-how from more than 20 years of activity in the industrial investment business with medium-sized companies. During this period, he built up new business units, held responsibility in various management functions and committees, among others in a group of companies in the power plant industry with locations in Germany, Italy and Hungary.

MIB deliberately developed the chosen niche concept, with which the investment company serves the increasing demand for succession solutions on the market.
