A market-leading manufacturer of gas springs, hydraulic vibration dampers, continuously adjustable doorstays and automatic opening and closing systems for doors, trunk lids and tailgates.

Stabilus’s diversified customer base with long standing and close customer relationships, its unrivalled market position and strong management team made it an ideal investment for Montagu.

In August 2004 Montagu led the Management Buyout of Stabilus, at that time a subsidiary of Demag Sarl a conglomerate owned by KKR and Siemens.  In May 2008 Stabilus was sold to Paine & Partners, LLC, US-based private equity firm.
