Best-Owner Approach

We are always on the lookout for new companies that complement our Group: competitive enterprises with a good market position and positive development prospects. We maintain your entrepreneurial freedom and support you on a strategic and financial level. Our companies continue to grow because we give them the opportunity to concentrate on what makes them stand out: achieving good results based on their particular know-how and years of experience.

Our Philosophy

We only acquire companies which we are convinced will profit from Possehl as the best owner in the long term. This best-owner approach also corresponds to both the mind-set and actions of our founder Emil Possehl. We can assure family business owners that, when selling their company to us, their life’s work is in good hands. Our approach is to successfully continue what they have built up over many years.

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