STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS IN EUROPEAN SMES IN THIS TIME OF CRISIS.
As part of a capital increase, WIRTGEN INVEST has increased its stake in Indus Holding to 3.7% of total outstanding shares. Indus Holding ranks among the leading specialists for sustainable shareholdings in the German-speaking SME sector. Indus acquires owner-managed firms in the production sector that often lack a direct succession solution and develops these further. The holding company is active in the mechanical engineering, metals technology and automotive engineering, construction and health technology sectors.
Indus Holding and Wirtgen have had a successful business relationship with one another for many years. This particular investment is a long-term strategic investment, one for which the upwards trend in the global economy offered perfect timing for the point of entry.
