Investment rational

With a strong management team and an attractive market position, Active Capital Company has confidence that Amphitec is attractively positioned for further expansion in the European market. Next we find Amphitec able to develop new high-end solutions, enabling the company to growth into new markets as well.  

Recently Amphitec brought to market a new ground sucking solution, being an example of the company’s development capacity. This solution is becoming increasingly attractive since it replaces solutions like the traditional excavator. Using this technique risk for damaging any pipes or cables is mitigated, predominantly relevant for industrial sites and urban areas, but also used to clean polluted sites.
