Holger R. Gerstel, Co-Owner and General Manager of Gerstel (Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany), has acquired all remaining shares of the company from his brother, Eberhard G. Gerstel, completing a change of ownership for the German company. The transaction sees the retirement of Eberhard Gerstel from all roles and functions within the company.

“The foundation has now been laid to transfer Gerstel to the third generation of the family. I would like to expressly thank my brother Eberhard for making this possible, and for our excellent relationship over more than two decades of highly successful cooperation,” said Holger Gerstel.

Founded in 1967 by the late Eberhard Gerstel (1927–2004), Gerstel has grown under the stewardship of his sons Eberhard and Holger, who assumed control in 1998, and who, alongside Ralf Bremer, have developed Gerstel into a respected provider of laboratory analysis solutions, particularly in automated sample preparation.

“We will continue to invest significant amounts in development and production, in our research and application laboratories, as well as in our customer support and training facilities, to broaden our offering while continuing to provide our customers [with] best-in-class support,” continued Holger.
