Sep 27, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Digital Transformation Capital Partners (DTCP) is now the majority owner of German DC firm Maincubes after acquiring additional stakes from Art-Invest Real Estate, a co-shareholder. Art-Invest, which used to hold about 75% of Maincubes stakes before DTCP’s initial investment, now retains only a 25% stake in the DC company.

Maincubes was founded in 2012 by German construction conglomerate Zech Group through its Art-Invest fund. The firm has since then grown massively, securing over $1.07 billion in debt financing for its expansion plans. The company also revealed that it has a portfolio with more than 100MW of capacity in operation or development and more in the pipeline.

DTCP acquired an undisclosed stake in the DC firm in 2022 and made additional investments this year, making it Maincubes majority owner. Holding on to the details of the agreement, Oliver Menzel, the CEO, founder, and shareholder, said, “We are delighted to have DTCP now as a majority investor on board, sharing our passion and vision for the data center market, and are looking forward to continuing our successful partnership. DTCP’s expertise, resources and network will support Maincubes and will allow the company to reach its full potential in the growing data center market.”
