Together with CDA’s man­age­ment team, we aim to strengthen the company’s cur­rent prod­uct port­fo­lio and lever­age its pro­duc­tion-know-how by tar­get­ing new appli­ca­tions to drive future growth” explained Matthias Kues, CEO of NORD Hold­ing. Kues envis­ages new appli­ca­tions in areas like life-sci­ences and micro-mechanics.

With more than 40 years’ of expe­ri­ence NORD Hold­ing is one of the lead­ing pri­vate equity com­pa­nies serv­ing the medium-sized sec­tor. Its activ­i­ties focus on the struc­ture and fund­ing of suc­ces­sion issues for mid­dle mar­ket com­pa­nies, spin-offs and expan­sion stage fund­ing for medium-sized com­pa­nies. Besides NORD/LB and the Bre­mer Lan­des­bank share­hold­ers in NORD Hold­ing include a num­ber of sav­ings banks and pub­lic insur­ance com­pa­nies. In con­trast to the major­ity of other finan­cial investors who man­age only tem­po­rary funds, NORD Hold­ing oper­ates as a so-called “ever­green” with­out any time lim­i­ta­tion. This gives the hold­ing com­pany the oppor­tu­nity to develop with­out any exter­nal pres­sure and to tap its growth potential.
