Areas of expertise
As business managers and investors, we benefit from our expertise in building and managing international technology companies with locations in the U.S. and Europe for more than 50 years. We have worked for and with some of the most demanding companies in the industry. Our teams create value through competency, speed, hard work and constant learning.
Our expertise ranges from industrial over commercial to residential and specialty real estate projects. We develop, buy, sell and rent. We work in new construction, remodeling and historic building preservation. We are currently active in Germany, Spain and Poland.
Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, fundamentally changing how you operate and deliver value to customers. We are proud to be investors in leading edge applications for the digital age.
We have leveraged our engineering skills gained in the automotive and semiconductor industry and combined it with our inside knowledge of the medical-industrial complex to deliver engineering services to hospitals and to invest in innovative biomedical early stage companies.
We have pioneered techniques and services since the 1970s (now considered industry standards) to build a globally recognized and leading group of semiconductor engineering services firms under the brand Cleanpart (now owned by Mitsubishi). Over the lifetime of the semiconductor industry we have added significant value to the most mission critical process steps of one of the most demanding industries thereby contributing to the biggest advances in modern technologies for more than 50 years.
With 125 years in electro-chemical engineering and focus on electroplating, our engagement with the automotive industry started over 80 years ago. From a generic coating company the Gärtner & Klinger group under Helmut Hohnloser developed into one of Europe’s premier corrosion protection companies with a focus on powertrain and other critical automotive components.
Our industrial background started with chemical engineering 125 years ago. Over time we established ourselves with a wide spectrum of technologies and services in the automotive, semiconductor and biomedical industry focusing mostly on surface protection, surface modification and surface maintenance.
