Mit Energie den Takt der Semicon-Industrie begleiten

The Industrials & Robotics sector with its high relevance for the German economy reflects our entrepreneurial DNA and at the same time high transaction density.

Our partner Jozsef Bugovics co-founded API Group, which developed a computerized, fully automated after-sales process for the aerospace, energy and automotive industries. Our partner Jules Grüninger knows the sector through his time as founder, CEO and in various senior interim management positions. And our partner Tobias Seige was himself active as an entrepreneur in this sector. He founded, managed and sold Trident Components Group, an automotive supplier of light metal components. Prior to that, he was a member of the board of VDO Adolf Schindling AG, where he was responsible for worldwide production.

Within the sector, we have gained further international expertise in recent years in the area of Mobility incl. drive technologies have been developed. Examples include the bicycle transmission manufacturer Pinion with its sale to BRP (Canada), Next Bike to Tier Mobility, and support for the growth phases of Twinner.
