As an entrepreneur, you think about the long run and beyond your own time at the company. Part of this means setting up your succession to make possible a promising future for the company and its employees.
We can help you with this.
We are specialized in turning promising medium-sized companies into international groups and expanding their business.
What exactly does that mean? Your company is a technological leader in your market niche, has a turnover of EUR 10 million to EUR 80 million, is based in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland (the DACH region), and is set for international growth.
Success is sure to follow when you stay on board as a minority shareholder. We will work with you and your management team to pursue a well-defined and jointly developed Buy & Build strategy for your company. With targeted add-on investments, we will form a strong and technologically leading industrial group doing business worldwide, often even as the market leader.
We know your world - our years of expertise in building international company groups are flanked by industrial experience in all business core functions, particularly sales and marketing, lean manufacturing, research and development, finance and controlling, and supply chain management.
We understand your strategic, competitive, and operational challenges. We know how operational improvements create long-term value.
Along with industrial experience, we leverage our network and financial strength to allow your company to take the steps needed for its development and internationalization.
Here are the industries we invest in:
- Construction supplies
- Industrial equipment
- Machinery, apparatus, and accessories
- Measurement and control systems/sensors
The results of our close partnerships with Bourdon-Haenni, Electronicparc, Maag, Schöttli, and mdexx have proven that our Buy & Build approach works.
These five groups are still doing business successfully in their niches after our exits.
“CGS had the know-how, the resources, and the management capacities for our expansion towards the us and china.”
