We are constantly on the lookout for new companies that fit our profile.

We maintain their entrepreneurial freedom and support
them on a strategic and financial level. Our companies
grow because they can concentrate on what makes them special: achieving good performance based on their special know-how and their many years of experience.

Young companies are also welcome in the Possehl Group. We are constantly expanding our portfolio to pursue common interests and provide mutual leverage for our companies. We strive to particularly drive the digital progress of our portfolio and improve it through ongoing innovations.

Our philosophy: Best-owner approach

We only acquire companies of which we are convinced that Possehl is the best owner in the long term.

The Best-Owner Approach also corresponds to the thinking and actions of our founder Emil Possehl.

We can promise the selling owners of family-run companies that their life’s work is in good hands with us. Our approach is to continue what they – in most cases – have built up over many years or generations.

Our Offer

Transaction Security

We finance an acquisition from our own funds; there is no burdening of the operating companies with the financing costs.


We manage and develop what we take over in the long term with entrepreneurial diligence and healthy growth.

Preserving identity

Our companies can preserve their culture and develop it independently.


We actively support our companies in the phases in which they need us.

Future viability and sustainability

We jointly develop new business models in future industries and drive them forward.

Fair dealings

We attach great importance to fair and respectful dealings with management and staff.

Acquisition Criteria

Participation options

Both our long-term perspective and buy-and-hold strategy fundamentally distinguish us from classic financial investors.

We value trustful partnerships, right from the very beginning: We treat investment negotiations as strictly confidential until the process has been completed and both parties are ready to go public.
