Lindéngruppen today

Lindéngruppen is a family business, based in Höganäs, Sweden. We focus on long-term development of industrial companies.

The business was founded by Ulf G. Lindén in the 1980s and is now owned by his daughter Jenny Lindén Urnes.

As a family business we are guided by our values: trust and integrity, responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit and a long-term view.

Our objective is long-term value creation through active and responsible ownership. Sustainable growth, innovation and customer focus are important to us. Because we are a family business, our companies are not constrained by short-term thinking. They are able to invest in innovation and markets that create value in the long term. We want our companies to have leading positions in their respective markets.

Our core strategic holdings are Beckers, a global leader in industrial coatings; ColArt, the largest global supplier of artist materials; and Höganäs AB, the world´s leading manufacturer of metal powders. In addition we own some smaller companies specialising in, for example, premium textiles and security glass.

We also devote time and resources to a number of non-profit projects.

In 2015 Lindéngruppen´s wholly owned companies had a combined turnover of approximately SEK 7.3 billion, and more than approx. 3,200 employees in 27 countries.

Jenny Lindén Urnes is chairman of the board. Erik Urnes is CEO.
