Broadview is a holding company that pursues long-term growth and value creation through active support of its operating companies and efficient capital allocation.
Our aim is to support our companies in their development to become and stay the reference in their industry. So that they are still relevant decades from now. We believe this approach benefits all stakeholders, from our employees to our shareholders and from our suppliers to our clients.
Efficient capital allocation is a second key activity for Broadview. It reaches beyond capital expenditure or other operational projects and includes an active acquisition strategy. Not only do we pursue acquisition opportunities linked to our existing businesses, but we also explore new industries where our insights show prospects for long-term value creation.
