Our values and mission

„Our companies offer high quality products and services. Their business conduct is always reliable and sound, driven by true dedication to customers, employees, business partners, investors and the community. The very same standards apply to ARENIT as the holding company.“

(from ARENIT’s mission statement)

Our entrepreneurial focus

ARENIT’s companies are small and medium sized enterprises within the German “Mittelstand” with a demonstrated track-record in delivering entrepreneurial and financial success. As a majority shareholder we are committed to the long run, balancing short-term profitability with long-term value-creation.

We „adopt“ family businesses, so they can remain family businesses.

Please see above impressions from our companies and products.

Back to the roots


„ARENIT is defined by the honest, down-to-earth, getting-things-done mindset of our Westphalian roots“

Dr. Stefan Niemeier and Dr. Nils Schlag founded ARENIT as a new home for “Mittelstand”-companies. Both have been Partners at McKinsey & Company, Inc. for many years, serving clients across different industries and geographies. This extensive experience is coupled with the honest, down-to-earth and getting-things-done mindset of their Westphalian roots. It allows them to develop companies further with new ideas while preserving each company’s existing strengths and unique identity.
