About Wendel

Company Description

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

Wendel is one of Europe’s leading listed investment firms, working at the intersection of industry and finance. A long-term investor with permanent capital, Wendel has been supported for over three centuries by the Wendel family, its reference shareholder.

Since 1977, Wendel has invested in a great number of successful industrial companies, including Bureau Veritas, Saint-Gobain, Capgemini, CarnaudMetalbox (Crown Holdings Inc.), BioMérieux, Reynolds, Stallergenes, Wheelabrator Allevard, Valeo, Afflelou, Editis, Deutsch Group, Legrand and Allied Universal.
