Stuttgart – Luther has advised CHIRON Group SE on the sale of Scherer Feinbau GmbH whose registered office is in Alzenau (Germany).

In addition to the sale of Scherer Feinbau GmbH, this also includes the pooling of production and assembly at the locations Tuttlingen and Neuhausen ob Eck (Germany) as well as focussing on the service and sales of Stama products at the location in Schlierbach (Germany). Luther advised CHIRON Group SE on the sale to EMAG Systems GmbH.
