Robert Frowein organised the buy-out of MBB (including the name-rights) from DASA (EADS today) in 1996 - together with private partners.
In the following years he and the management team restructured the group, sold non-strategic business units, conquered export markets, tripled turnover and improved profitability.
In 2000 french PE-investor Natexis joined the group and facilitated further international growth.
In 2008 MBB was successfully sold to the Austrian Palfinger-Group.
