We are always on the lookout for new companies that fit into our operation: competitive enterprises with a good market position and positive development prospects. We maintain their entrepreneurial freedom and support them on a strategic and financial level. Our companies continue to grow because we give them the opportunity to concentrate on their key distinguishing feature, which is to achieve good results based on their special know-how and many years of experience.

Our philosophy: Best-owner approach

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 the mind-set and the business actions undertaken by our founder Emil Possehl.

We can assure family business owners that, when selling their companies to us, their life’s work is in good hands. Our approach is to continue what they have built up over many years or generations.
