ARQIS advises GNS on takeover of nickel-plating activities of MTV NT

07. July 2022

ARQIS has advised GNS Gesellschaft für Nuklear-Service mbH on the takeover of the nickel-plating activities of MTV NT GmbH in Mülheim an der Ruhr.

Both companies have already been co-operating in the galvanic coating of GNS nuclear containers for more than three decades. Through the takeover, a succession arrangement was found for the Mülheim-based company as well as for the continuation of the technology and the safeguarding of jobs. In the future, GNS will thus conduct the nickel plating of its nuclear containers itself as a manufacturer.

The ARQIS team under the leadership of Eberhard Hafermalz accompanied the takeover by asset deal, i.e., equipment, know-how, intellectual property rights and all employees will be transferred to GNS. MTV NT GmbH itself remains with its existing shareholders and will continue to exist for a transitional period.
