Our corporate structure

In 2002, Rodenstock set the course towards a corporate structure suitable for the capital market by transforming into a GmbH (limited liability company). In June 2003, Permira Beteiligungsberatung GmbH became the first non-family financial investor. In 2007, the European investment company Bridgepoint took over the shares held by the Permira funds. In 2015, Compass Partners joined Rodenstock as an additional investor.

Apax Funds acquired their shares in March 2021. Apax Funds will support Rodenstock's management in accelerating the company's growth and driving innovation, digitalisation and effective marketing of its products.
