A family-owned investment company with focus on industrial, real estate and forest investments

Ahlström Capital combines the best features of an industrial company, an investment company and a family-owned company. We hold significant financial resources as one of the largest investment companies in Finland, strong industrial expertise, efficient processes, and an attitude of an active and responsible owner. Our mission to create sustainable long-term shareholder value growth with attractive cash returns.

Our portfolio consists of real estate, forest and industrial investments. Real estate and forest investments form the firm basis of our portfolio that provides strong cash flow and solid value growth. Industrial investments include substantial holdings in listed companies as well as direct investments in non-listed companies and offer opportunities for strong value growth with flexible holding period.

Real estate and forest holdings focus on prime locations in the growth centers in Southern Finland and forests in Finland. We also own and develop culturally and historically significant works in Noormarkku and Kauttua.

Developing leading businesses with strong expertise

Our values, ambition and responsibility, guide all our operations. We are a reputable owner with a sustainable long-term approach. We develop our portfolio based on our industrial traditions and expertise together with a strong partner network. One of our primary goals is to gain substantial influence or control in companies we invest in. We aim to have the leading role in listed companies and to be the majority owner in non-listed companies, however we welcome co-investment opportunities with reputable investors.

We invest in established companies that have strong positions in attractive markets and offer further development and value creation potential. We increase the value of the companies we own by actively participating in developing them, through active board and strategy work, as well as mergers and acquisitions. We support and develop the companies by forming effective boards that possess in-depth industrial experience and can support the management to succeed in leading their business.
