WD Beteiligungs GmbH was founded in 2002 in Bregenz, Austria by Werner Deuring, the sole owner and managing director of the company. Since then, sixteen companies have been taken over, restructured and some were resold again.
Werner Deuring studied mechanical engineering at the higher technical Institute Bregenz. Following his studies, he spent several years abroad and established two sales and service organizations for industrial machines and systems in the US.
In 1996, Werner Deuring invested in his first Austrian company with 250 employees. After the successful restructuring and expansion, the company was sold again in 2000. Today, the WD Beteiligung holds ownership stakes in various companies located in Austria, Germany and Italy.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) are one of the most important drivers of economic growth. They create workplaces and enforce the purchasing power of consumers. Most of these companies have future-oriented business ideas but do not dispose of the corresponding capital for implementation. Therefore, we have developed financing programmes that are specializing in the needs of small and medium-sized companies.
Our models deliver the decisive economic impulse as well as the solid basis for dynamic growth. Individual consultation and dynamic decision-making processes are the key components of our performance. We offer an international network of business partners and professional support for the strategic orientation of your business activities.
We strive for majority capital participation in small and medium-sized companies with a turnover between 10 and 60 million Euro. The focus is put on long-term participation and on the continuous effort to align all business activities with market requirements:
Growth through expansion investment
Participation capital for turn-around financing
