Investment Thesis

KINKELDER aims to leverage its high technology product portfolio, advanced production technologies and widespread distribution network to grow its share in current markets and diversify geographically, especially in markets that are transitioning to more advanced production technologies. In addition, a targeted buy-and-build strategy will enable KINKELDER to broaden its product portfolio and realize vertical (forward) integration.

“Rivean has supported us to fulfill our growth and diversification strategy by accelerating acquisitions and investments.“
