Statement of intent

Reunert will manage businesses in the services, electronics and electrical engineering sectors, supplying value-added products, solutions and systems to local and international markets. Each of these businesses will remain capable of meeting the group’s objectives for sustainable growth and earnings.

We will consider investing in businesses that operate outside our historic business areas, provided that all our criteria for investment returns and growth are met.
