As one of the first German investment companies we have successfully invested in mid-sized high-growth companies since 1969. In this sense NORD Holding is not only equity investor, but long-term investor for our portfolio companies from many different industries. Unlike other investment companies, we do not assume any operational tasks, but, rather like sparring partners, we support the management with our expertise in strategic and financial issues, such as investment in new technologies, the selection of executives and the entry into new markets and regions. Our primary goal is a sustainable increase in value of the companies in which we participate as the rule as the majority shareholder. The trusting and cooperative partnership with management is one of the crucial factors for success.
