Munich, 23 December 2020 – Quantum Capital Partners (QCP) today announced that one of its investment funds completed the divesture of Postcon National GmbH and its subsidiary mailworXs GmbH to Frankfurt-based private equity investor Tempus Capital and Postcon National’s management. The business operations of Postcon National were acquired in October 2019 as part of PostNL’s Germany operations. The divesture of Postcon National marks the second exit from the Postcon Group after Berlin-based postal service provider PIN AG was sold to Dieter von Holtzbrinck Vermögensbeteiligung GmbH in 2019. Two entities of the former Postcon Group – Postcon NRW GmbH and Postcon Konsolidierungs GmbH – remain within the Quantum Group and will be further developed as independent businesses.

With an annual mailing volume of more than half a billion letters, Postcon National is one of Germany's largest private mail service providers. The Ratingen-based B2B specialist reaches every household nationwide in cooperation with partners and its own network. Large customers such as banks, insurance companies, energy providers, telecommunications companies and public authorities have been relying on Postcon National for more than 20 years to move their business letters, catalogues, packages and parcels.
