Industrial

ADVENT INTERNATIONAL HAS BEEN INVESTING IN THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR FOR 25 YEARS AND HAS COMPLETED OVER  65 INVESTMENTS IN 23 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE.

The sector is largely capex-intensive and cyclical. Our approach is to look for growth in subsectors and geographies where we have extensive networks and knowledge, building sustainable business models that incorporate the cycle but are not dependent on it for expansion.

Following are some examples of subsectors we target:

  • BUILDING PRODUCTS/
    DISTRIBUTION

  • Cyclical industry in recovery
  • Undercapitalized businesses present operational improvement opportunities
  • Large fragmented markets with industry consolidation potential
  • Family owners and undermanaged businesses with operational improvement potential
  • View investments
  • CAPITAL GOODS

  • Corporate restructuring and portfolio realignment are creating the potential for carve-outs
  • International expansion opportunities
  • View investments
  • CHEMICALS & MATERIALS

  • Industry consolidation in Western markets
  • Expansion into Asia and Latin America
  • Lower input costs are creating an advantage for US suppliers
  • View investments
  • ENERGY

  • Large global industry underpinned by steady long-term demand growth
  • Secular market drivers, which include increasing complexity in extracting and transporting oil and gas, are creating opportunities for dynamic companies with technology-enabled solutions
  • View investments

Other areas of interest include distribution services, where we see the potential for industry consolidation and operational improvement, and mining equipment and services, a renewed area of focus for Advent.
