Over the course of a quarter of a century, Doughty Hanson has established a strong track record of buying and developing market-leading businesses. We have built on the close relationships we enjoy with the owners of, and advisers to, family businesses and industrial operations throughout Europe. Working alongside management, we have helped many companies grow into successful international organisations.
We focus on majority ownership and control of businesses at the upper end of the European middle market with enterprise values between ?250m ? ?1bn.
Many of the companies we have acquired are now listed on major stock exchanges; others have become divisions of larger global companies. We work in close partnership with management, developing shared strategic goals and providing detailed support through the value enhancement initiatives that we undertake.
