Founded in 1992 and owned by its four Managing Partners, VTC is a fast growing and independent industrial holding company. VTC currently owns five portfolio companies with a consolidated turnover of around EUR 700 million and more than 4,000 employees.
It is our intention to establish long-term shareholdings. We focus on profitable growth and value creation. We are looking to invest in international, medium-sized companies headquartered in German-speaking countries. In addition to our capital and financing expertise we support them strategically and operationally through the personal involvement of our experienced staff. We use our resources and network in order to assist our portfolio companies in strategic projects or M&A transactions.
For the successful implementation of our strategy, VTC needs a clear definition of its role within the group: We act as a "sparring partner" for our management teams and emphasize entrepreneurial autonomy to maximize the flexibility of our portfolio companies and enhance their competitive position. All of the companies are financially and operationally independent, and VTC does not provide any central overhead functions.
We strongly believe in entrepreneurship, an explicit set of values and the pursuit of long-term success. Our values not only serve as guiding principles for our employees, but also help us to build trusting relationships with our business partners.
