CommonWealth / Alewijnse

Partner since 2018

As Strong Root Capital we focus on investments in companies which face challenges, such as carve-outs and turnarounds. We assist those companies with both knowledge and capital, and our involvement is mainly practical, so that we can share responsibility for strategically important decisions. With our investment in Alewijnse, we maintain a robust emphasis on advancing electrical engineering and automation within the marine industry. One of the principal reasons we selected CommonWealth as our partner for this investment is that we share CommonWealth's dedication to forging solid partnerships. We work together with CommonWealth in several successful investments and we have always relied and build on their support even when things were getting more difficult and challenging, which is not uncommon in a turnaround situation. We believe that our aligned values facilitate the development of solutions that not only benefit Alewijnse but also encourage a more sustainable future for the marine industry. In summary, we are enthusiastic about the opportunities this partnership offers, and we eagerly anticipate working closely with CommonWealth to realise our mutual goals.
