HOW INVISION PLAYS ITS PART
The company’s owner Klaus Bauer has wanted to draw up succession plans for a long time, but the process proved to be more complicated and time-consuming than expected. INVISION offered him a pragmatic and transparent solution that was implemented within the space of just a few months. This solution not only took into account the interests of the entire Bauer family, but also those of longstanding employees, customers and suppliers.
INVISION responded to our needs with great flexibility and insight as well as proposed and implemented an ideal solution for all concerned within a very short space of time.
