ACQUISITIONS

We look for companies to maintain and develop

Acquisitions are an important part of Addtech’s business concept. We are always looking for entrepreneurs and technology trading companies that can bolster existing operations or contribute new product or market segments where the conditions are right for taking leading positions.

Addtech acquires companies in order to maintain and evolve them in the long term. The new companies contribute with a presence on new sub-markets, supplementary agents and suppliers and, perhaps most importantly, skilled employees with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. On the other hand, Addtech is able to make a contribution as a financially robust, well-established and committed owner with clear goals for growth and profitability.

We look for companies with:

  • Profitability and growth potential
  • High knowledge and technology content
  • Established supplier relationships
  • Niche market focus
  • Relationship-based sales 

 

We develop our companies through active ownership

Addtech is a long-term industrial owner that believes in freedom with responsibility. In our decentralised organisation we value entrepreneurship and the acquired companies continue to operate under their own brands. We coach and support the entrepreneurs in developing the companies and give them access to Addtech's network and resources.
