Brebeck’s customer base includes several prominent word-class players in the motorsport market, such as KTM AG, BMW AG, Porsche AG and Audi AG.
Moving forward, both founders will retain a significant minority stake in the Company and Mr. Brebeck will continue to drive the further growth and development of the business. The Company’s primary strategic focus will remain centered around servicing its blue-chip, anchor customers in the motorsport and automotive industries while also broadening its product offering to customers in the aerospace market.
