We are committed in our belief in the potential of Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Engineers from the Soviet Union were the first to send a rocket to space. But despite this slumbering technical expertise, the post-soviet countries in recent years invested mostly in commodities. This situation is most definitely about to change.
It is our task as The Creon Group to take a leadership role and create value in Eurasia. We invest in companies which are anxious and impatient to enter export markets by modernizing their facilities. We assist them to rescale to production, improve quality and when required, find them the relevant working partners. Basically, our investments go along with those of governments and strategically expanding companies in the region:
Modernization: We help to provide financing dedicated to modernizing equipment, which is generally a precondition for competitiveness in global markets.
Export-orientation: Many companies would like to expand their export markets, but lack customers, technology partners or financial resources. We can help find such partners and we are eager to assist when it comes to production up-scaling.
Diversification: Some countries rely too much on crude exports, which is a weakness in times of declining market prices. Our investments help to reduce this dependence.
Supporting SME: Projects in niches of the chemical industry are usually too small for big corporations, but small and medium-sized companies often fail to persuade banks to finance them. We can assist in a restructuring process making these companies more attractive to financial institutions.
Green technologies: We support ideas dedicated to increase manufacturing efficiency and reduce emission as we believe in green-tech as an economic driver in the future.
We are a value-adding investor CREON Capital wants to contribute to diversification and modernization in Eastern Europe by investing in medium-sized chemical processing projects. Such investments are simply too small for large Corporations, but too large for SMEs without access to financial markets.
