complex industrial investors

Rubicon Partners is a hands-on investment partnership focused on the acquisition of industrial businesses in Europe and North America.

Over the past 28 years we have acquired 76 businesses across manufacturing, distribution and service sectors, ranging in value from £15m to £250m. We create value by addressing operational and strategic issues.

Our focus is on complexity, both within individual companies as well as groups of businesses or portfolios. We have extensive experience in acquiring from private family ownership, management, corporates and private equity funds. The hallmark of our approach is certainty of execution and long-term investment strategy.

Working within the structure of an industrial holding company, backed by private capital, we have the ability to add value to businesses over a longer time period than traditional private equity.

We are a close-knit team of investment professionals with strong operational and strategic capabilities, and with the experience and expertise to work with management to grow companies to their full potential. We achieve this by establishing systems for rigorous financial and operational control, and by providing a framework for strategic planning and implementation.

Rubicon Partners operates across offices in London and Munich with a team of 13 professionals.
