German term or phrase: Errichter
Industrial parks:

"Erst mit der heutigen Zusammensetzung der Gesellschaften, naemlich A as Betreiber und B GmbH als Errichter der Anlage wurden die Partner gefunden, die zusammen mit den Finanzpartnern fuer den Erfolg des Projektes stehen."

So, if I'm understanding this correctly, A is going to operate it and B is going to build it?
