The right solution for the future of your company

The effective transfer and continuation of family businesses in the SME sector is no longer a matter of course these days. This is also reflected in the report on company succession by the most recent German Chamber of Industry and Commerce. According to statistics, around 40% of owners are unable to find a suitable successor for their business and 39% are not prepared in good time (Statista, 2024).  

Support for 
the future of your business

NORDWEST offers advice and concrete help in various ways. On the one hand, we support specialist trade partners in providing the best possible support to young successors and mastering the many challenges such as shop design, product range planning, digitalisation and a shortage of skilled workers. On the other hand, we take care of the succession itself if required. In the absence of a suitable successor, NORDWEST advises on company valuation and succession in collaboration with recognised SME experts. Within the network, we bring together interested trading partners with the intention to buy or sell in order to make the company smaller or even larger and fit for the future.
