Puma Private Equity wins ‘Most Impactful Investment’ award
We’re delighted to share that Puma Private Equity, the private equity division of Puma Investments, won the award for ‘Most Impactful Investment’ at the Growth Investor Awards 2019.
The prize showcases a standout deal made in the past 12 months, taking into account its effect on the business, how funding was deployed and how investment helped the business move forward.
Puma Private Equity achieved this recognition following the team’s investment into Dymag Group, the British designer and manufacturer of high-performance carbon hybrid automotive and motorcycle wheels. You can read more about this investment here.
Building on its impressive history of innovation and technology in motorsport, Dymag launched the first commercial carbon motorcycle wheel in 1996 and the first carbon hybrid automotive wheel in 2004.
The growing popularity of electric and hybrid engines and the search to optimise efficiencies in petrol and diesel technology has seen an increasing flight to carbon. As testament to this, leading brands including BMW, Rolls Royce, Porsche, McLaren and Ford have all launched carbon wheel programmes in recent years. Dymag is well-placed to direct this shift, with the support from Puma Private Equity helping the brand position itself for future growth.
