Knoll Holding had been managed by Manfred Knoll for over 60 years. Apart from vehicle parts and sales, the firm also owns a number of Bosch Car Service centres and even runs a kitchen remodelling business.

Fabian Roberg, CEO of AAG Germany, said, “Knoll is a company with a long history of success and strong ties to its customers. Knoll and AAG have many things in common, such as a supplier base, a shared corporate culture, and a bond of partnership with employees and business partners. Because of this common background, I believe that Knoll and AAG have the best prerequisites to be successful together in the market. I am confident that we will develop new growth opportunities in our markets.”

The deal is subject to all the usual regulatory approvals.
