At ADCURAM, we rely on fully unconditional cooperation on equal footing. Every investment becomes 100 percent part of our core business. If you want to reach new heights, you have to function as a team, which is why we bring employees, the management team and other stakeholders on board for all important issues. With entrepreneurial expertise and a hands-on mentality, we address your goals together – and stick together, even when the road is rocky: Because it’s about more than just economic success. Here you can find an overview of our current investments.
We do not just talk about consulting and success, but speak from our entrepreneurial experience. ADCURAM has worked with well-known medium-sized companies in many industrial sectors: Together with the management teams, we have been able to leverage the long-term growth potential of our investments and patiently created optimal corporate strategies for each case. Our shareholder structure and financial capabilities give ADCURAM the freedom to accompany our portfolio companies independently, sustainably and with a clear focus. This creates added value in the long term, from which our business partners and their employees benefit beyond our holding period to this day.
We have acquired DURAN GROUP from Schott AG, where it was a part of the company without a long-term perspective, integrated management or independent financing. With ADCURAM, DURAN GROUP, a developer of special laboratory glassware with four locations, has developed into a very profitable medium-sized business and global market leader in its segment.
Originally only a peripheral activity of BAYER AG with operational losses in individual product areas and a need for restructuring of its US activities, the specialty machinery manufacturer Hennecke has – with the support of ADCURAM and a series of bespoke operational, structural and strategic measures – developed into a clear market leader in polyurethane machinery for the high-end market segment. Today, Hennecke has a significantly broader product range and is excellently positioned at an international level.
IMA Leading Technologies, a medium-sized specialist in the woodworking machinery sector, was at the end 2005 confronted with an outdated machine pool, investment backlog and the urgent need for a thorough renewal of its product range for the entry-level market segment. With the support of ADCURAM, substantial investments were made into manufacturing and R&D. Operationally and strategically, the company was also further developed and increasingly oriented towards an international market. Today, IMA is a global technology leader for high-performance systems in its field.
Due to our entrepreneurial drive, passion as well as our technical and operational expertise, ADCURAM has created more than just one technology or market leader.
