Rigorous targeting identifying underperforming
business assets with high potential.

Our approach

Industrie Invest’s proprietary analyses, rigorous processes and holistic due diligence optimise outcomes, turning suboptimal corporate assets into the leading performers in a business portfolio, and their markets.

Targeted search

Using proprietary analyses techniques, we profile and target underperforming businesses for acquisition. Each target must satisfy demanding criteria to qualify for our WeTurn 4.0TM programme.

Insightful due diligence

Once targeted, each asset is rigorously assessed by a holistic due diligence programme. Our approach is designed to pass only businesses and management teams capable of performance optimisation and accelerated recovery.

Sustainable turnaround

Using in-house and interim experts to support management teams, we create and apply cash generation and market leadership strategies that result in sustainable and customer focused performance improvements.
