This sector remains one of the world’s largest, despite its dramatic evolution in recent years. There is no shortage of opportunities for the best manufacturing businesses to grow rapidly.
Macro themes driving growth include changes such as the declining cost of robots, which will unleash the next round of manufacturing automation, and increased regulation surrounding the environmental impact of manufacturing. The latter has already led to much greater demand for specialist products that can limit pollution.
Our team is one of the most experienced in manufacturing in the markets we operate in, having invested heavily in such companies since the 1980s.
Our deals have included world-leading high-end camera maker and software provider Phase One, German screw pumps maker Pumpenfabrik Wangen, and Benelux-based ultra-high purified metallic hoses manufacturer, CoreDux.
Companies must continually innovate to thrive in manufacturing so we look for strong, differentiated products, a focus on product development, and exposure to dynamic markets that can support organic growth and potentially sector consolidation.
