Industrial companies are facing challenges and opportunities from emerging economies. These are exciting times for the most ambitious and progressive businesses. With deep sector knowledge and a international presence, we are well-placed to work in partnership with fast-growing industrial businesses that thrive on change.
The companies we invest in have a differentiated product, technology, network or know-how offering. We support companies in realising their international growth plans, increasing their scale, bringing in additional talent for driving operational improvement or investing in platform expansion. In many cases, Asia and South America are critical to the company’s growth plans - not necessarily as centres for lower-cost production, but as attractive end markets.
We work closely with management teams, giving them access to our experience, network and capital. This continues to help companies in driving their international expansion and growth agenda and in identifying and executing value creation opportunities through e.g. add-on acquisitions or operational improvement projects.
