The B&C Industrieholding


Wholly-owned by the B&C Private Foundation, B&C Industrieholding GmbH (BCIH) operates as the management company entrusted with managing and fostering the continuous development of the major Austrian industrial companies of the B&C Group. The B&C Group holds majority stakes in AMAG Austria Metall AG, Lenzing AG and Semperit AG Holding through its holding companies in line with long-term strategic considerations.

The B&C Group aims to ensure that these companies’ research centers and headquarters permanently remain in Austria. This clearly distinguishes the B&C Group from other investors pursuing short-term investment policies with a scheduled exit. Instead, B&C actively supports its core investments’ long-term and major projects, particularly those designed to promote expansion in global markets. We consider sustainability as a decisive factor for maintaining and increasing the value of the core investments and for meeting major ecological and social challenges. This approach allows the B&C Group to significantly and comprehensively contribute to the long-term success of its core investments and, in turn, promoting Austria as a business location.

This also ensures that the company headquarters will stay in Austria.
