Oras Invest - A family company focused on industrial ownership

About Us

We are an industrial owner with a long-term commitment

Oras Invest focuses on industrial companies, which operate in building, water and bio-based materials value chains or in closely related sectors. We develop our companies through active board work and close cooperation with the management and other significant owners.

Our approach

Our goal is to capitalize on the strengths that make us stand out from financial investors

With our exceptionally long ownership horizon – ownership over generations and decades – we develop our companies patiently. Within our network we have unique industrial expertise.

The roots of Oras Invest lie in family entrepreneurship: the faucet company Oras was founded in 1945. Our current industrial ownerships are Oras Group, Uponor and Kemira. In addition, we acquired a stake in Valmet in 2022. The net asset value of Oras Invest was EUR 1.4 billion at the end of 2021.
