KAP – Engineering Excellence

We are a listed industrial holding company focused on upper mid-size operating companies with approximately 2,700 employees. Our strategy is to occupy attractive market niches with  potential. Our focus lies in the establishment and development of high-margin industrial segments into highly specialized market leaders. Specifically, KAP AG focuses on four distinct operating segments: engineered products, flexible films, surface technologies and precision components.

In addition to organic growth, we also focus on selective acquisitions, which exclusively make a positive contribution to the segment.

Long-term thinking is combined with modern management approaches and good access to financing opportunities and global markets.
