Established in 1886, Berwind is a family-owned investment management company with a long history of financial stability and consistent growth in revenue and profitability. Representing several billion dollars in enterprise value, Berwind's six operating companies serve a number of industries including pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, medical packaging, automotive, life sciences, energy, general industrial, and natural resources. A significant portion of Berwind's revenue is derived internationally and Berwind has an aggressive acquisition program to reinvest its strong annual operating cash flows in future growth opportunities. Berwind also manages a portfolio of venture capital and private equity investments with the goal of generating attractive returns on investment while also broadening its exposure to different end markets (e.g. technology).
Berwind has a buy-and-hold investment approach which favors value-added industries and sustainable long-term growth and cash generation. They maintain 100% ownership in all of their operating companies and function under a highly decentralized business model, offering operating management significant earned autonomy while providing financial, business and operational advice and assistance from a small, energized corporate team headquartered in Philadelphia ("Berwind Corp").
The Berwind family is deeply committed to social justice and has a strong track record of driving positive social change. The Berwind companies are active in promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, and Spring Point Partners is a social impact venture founded by Berwind family members.
