AVS Verkehrssicherung GmbH’s Acquisition of SRV Verkehrstechnik GmbH

ARQIS Rechtsanwälte has advised AVS Verkehrssicherung GmbH.

VS Verkehrssicherung, a Triton Fund IV portfolio company, has signed an agreement to acquire SRV Verkehrstechnik GmbH, a renowned provider of road marking and construction site safety services.

SRV, based in Limbach-Oberfrohna near Chemnitz, employs 26 people and has many years of experience in the field of permanent and temporary road marking. For the planning and implementation of traffic safety services, SRV works together with state property developers and private construction companies on a cross-regional basis.

AVS Verkehrssicherung, headquartered in Leverkusen, is a leading specialist provider of traffic safety services in Germany and Europe. This includes advice and the necessary approval procedure for all traffic safety installations, installation and dismantling, marking and demarking work, maintenance and inspection tours. AVS is represented at over 25 locations in Germany; internationally at more than 10 locations in Belgium, Denmark and Latvia. AVS employs around 1,100 people.

SRV was founded in 1990 to meet the high demand for infrastructure services in the new federal states. The sharp increase in traffic required road markings to ensure traffic safety. The professional application of white or yellow road markings in paint, hot or cold plastic has been the speciality of SRV ever since. Services in the field of traffic safety and the necessary road equipment complete the portfolio.

Since its establishment in 1997, Triton has sponsored nine funds, focusing on businesses in the industrial, business services, consumer and health sectors. The Triton funds invest in and support the positive development of medium-sized businesses headquartered in Europe.
