Wendel is one of Europe’s leading listed investment firms. The Group invests in Europe, North America and Africa in companies which are leaders in their field, such as Bureau Veritas, Cromology, Stahl, IHS, Constantia Flexibles and Crisis Prevention Institute. Wendel plays an active role as a controlling or lead shareholder in these companies. It implements long-term development strategies, which involve boosting growth and margins of companies so as to enhance their leading market positions.

Founded in the east of France (Lorraine region) in 1704, the Wendel Group developed its business over more than 300 years in diverse industrial sectors, mainly steelmaking. At the end of the 1970s, the French government nationalized all of the Group’s steel production activities. Wendel, a pioneer in private equity, then turned its focus to long-term investing.
