Committed and experienced employees work at Nalka today
Companies from a wide range of industries grow in our portfolio
Employees work together every day to strengthen our portfolio companies
As a committed owner, Nalka relies on its ability to support and develop companies and their strategies in order to strengthen their competitiveness and to create permanent value.
On paper, we are owners. In practice, we are above all your partner. Together we create independent, competitive and long-term profitable companies
Company development is a team sport and we do not want to be spectators. Our role is always active, but shaped to the company's needs. We support our companies both operationally and in strategic matters by contributing capital and expertise to reach our goals.
The road always leads to a stronger company that we build together. We achieve this through initiatives to strengthen the company's profitability and cash flows, as well as by creating a structure and long-term perspective in the company's strategy and vision.
We define and carry out clear initiatives that strengthen the company's competitiveness. Often from 5 to 10 years, but also shorter or longer than that. As long as we are the right partner for the company's situation and future development, we will work together.
We invest to support companies in their development, as opposed to only watching them develop. As the main owner or partner, there should always be a clear opportunity for us to actively contribute to the company’s development.
Our origin, operational understanding and long-term capital make us an attractive owner in many situations – not least in family-owned companies.
Nalka has a responsibility, not only towards co-workers and portfolio companies but also towards customers, suppliers, business partners and society in general. We are convinced that responsibility, long-term perspective, and profitability goes hand in hand. h
Our investments are not solely evaluated on sound financial and commercial criteria, but also based on environmental and social factors, governance and business ethical perspectives and values.
The Nalka ESG process cover the full investment cycle, from screening of new investments, initial due diligence, the ongoing management of portfolio companies and in the end – the divesting of a business.
The most important ESG work is done by our portfolio companies and Nalka’s ambition is to always be an engaged and demanding partner in all our investments.
Nalka invests in market-leading small- and medium-sized businesses based in the Nordic and DACH region. We like our companies to have an established presence outside of their home market or a potential to grow beyond their existing markets.
