We are an engaged owner with a long-term perspective. The largest businesses within the group were established in the 1980s. The parent company Eriksson Capital employs nine people, while the entire group has over 1,500 employees around the world.
Trygve Eriksson commenced his business career as early as in 1965, when he started as a construction entrepreneur specialized in trucks and excavators. During the 1970s, he began to invest and engage in local Åland businesses. The companies Eriksson Capital has worked with during the years span industries from truck manufacturing, stonemasonry and potato chips to shipping, food packaging and medical tubing solutions, and include both local businesses and global enterprises.
Today, we are primarily engaged within the packaging industry, advanced extrusion of tubing for medical and industrial purposes, metalworking, sustainable polymer materials and wind energy as well as property and asset management.
We invest in a variety of different companies in order to create a balanced portfolio when it comes to business models, cycles and market developments. The majority of our current investments are in specialized niche businesses that work in the global market and are primarily B2B companies. Some of the companies are world-leading within their respective industries.
