Taking the next step

within sustainable packaging

Investment philosophy

We invest in and develop small and mid-sized sustainable packaging companies, with the aim to create long term value creation.

We create growth through active ownership and local empowerment. We develop both businesses and people. We nurture a high performance culture to reach our goals.

We aim to be an active owner. As such we typically take majority stake and have an active ownership position.

We are focused on long-term value creation and have developed several of our companies over a 20-year period.

We plan to invest up to 200 million euros during the next 3 years.

We look for companies with a proven product, solution or business model and with significant opportunity for profitable growth.

The offering is unique and provides a competitive edge.  

We are also looking for a solid team with passion, expertise and willingness to make a difference.

We aspire to embrace sustainability in everything we do. Circular economy is the ultimate goal.

Our target size is between 5 and 50 million euros in revenue, with smaller add-on investments.

Our primary geographical focus is within Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

What we look for

How we engage

We contribute with experience, network and capital to support market expansion and professionalization.

We deploy our capabilities in three areas to deliver growth: industrialization, commercialization and internationalization.

We use synergies with group companies when beneficial.

We are an active and responsible investor. We take responsibility for strategic direction, performance management, capital allocation, sustainability efforts. We interact primarily through board representation and coaching of senior management as appropriate.

We create growth through active ownership and local empowerment. The CEO’s of our businesses have full ownership and accountability for their businesses.

We have a successful track record of acquisitions within the labelling and packaging world.
