Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, Schenck develops and manufactures innovative solutions for a wide range of industrial processes including weighing, feeding, conveying, screening and filtration.

We are excited to team up with management and accompany Schenck in the next stage of its development,” said Lionel Assant, head of European private equity at Blackstone.
 
“As we embark on an exciting new chapter for Schenck, I would like to thank IK for their invaluable support over the past years.
