Search spectrum

We are particularly interested in family businesses that share our values and corporate culture. We have therefore divided our search spectrum into four clusters.

  • Industry

    - Machinery and equipment engineering firms, ideally with a good share of wear and tear and service / service business,
    - Industrial consumer goods with low cyclicality
    - Automation & Robotics
    - Electronics industry (to complement STOLL Electronic; www.stollelectronic.de)

  • Future

    Business models and technologies that focus on the megatrends such as neo-ecology, silver society, connectivity, new work and knowledge culture. Investments in B2C business models also possible.

  • TEXTILE

    Technologies, processes and business models that complement our existing business units. We are particularly interested in business models based on the end-of-use of textiles (ReWear, ReUse and ReCycle).

  • Start-up

    -Investments in venture capital funds
    -Companies that are already beyond the start-up phase

    Already past the establishment stage. Require further resources besides capital for the envisaged growth.
