The insolvency was mainly caused by problems with a long-term supplier, which finally completely halted delivery. The massive slump in sales led to financial troubles. Now, the insolvency is completed and the company is looking forward to a restart. 120 workplaces were saved. A main part of the restructuring process is a new company structure below the STK Holding GmbH and in cooperation with Latvian producer FTS Baltic SIA. New investors like the Kaupp family office ensure financial stability of the restructured company. Karl-Friedrich Kaupp is a tax expert and private equity investor from Stuttgart.
