Kartesia and Maeander Capital support Soli Infratechnik to continue its growth ambitions
Maeander Capital with the support of Kartesia expands its shareholding in Soli Infratechnik alongside the existing shareholder and management to jointly pursue the future growth ambitions of the company.
Soli Infratechnik is a provider of fibre optic infrastructure services, supporting the planning and building of telecommunications networks in Germany. Founded in 2014, Soli Infratechnik has achieved strong growth through its focus on fiber optic infrastructure - from consulting and planning to engineering, civil engineering, installation, and aftercare services like documentation and maintenance. With over 450 highly qualified engineers and technicians, Soli Infratechnik has put in the newest technology networks in communities and businesses across Germany.
Kartesia, the European specialist provider of capital solutions for small and mid-sized companies, supported a recapitalisation of the business, which subsequently allowed Maeander Capital, the mid-market focused private equity firm to expand its shareholding in the company. The capital was deployed from Kartesia’ Credit Opportunities funds (KCO IV & V). The deal team at Kartesia included Thomas Pöhler, Niclas Paulin and Nico Wellm.
Thomas Pöhler, Head of Germany at Kartesia, commented: “The importance of reliable and consistent internet connections has never been more important and Soli Infratechnik is at the cutting edge of planning and implementing solutions. We’re delighted to be working together with the existing shareholder, management and Maeander Capital on this exciting transaction and look forward to seeing the further development of the business.”
Thomas Langhammer, CEO of Soli Infratechnik: “We are proud of Soli Infratechnik and our employees that have contributed to the success of the company. The company has strong growth ambitions and we look forward to work together with Kartesia and Maeander Capital to achieve these in the coming years.”

Through a combination of entrepreneurship, focused execution, and an attractive customer proposition, the company has built a strong market position. We have a lot of confidence in the team and are excited to be able to support them in realizing the next growth phase.”
