Oriens is an independent privately-owned industrial holding focusing on private equity investments in the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia
Oriens was established in 2007. The core of the founding team, Krisztián Orbán, Flóra Macher, and Zsuzsa Delikát, has worked together ever since. Throughout the early years, we could rely on the immeasurable support of Ambassador George Herbert Walker, without whom there would be no Oriens today. We were also priviledged to count on the financial and moral support of Peter Holtzer and the advice of John C. Whitehead.
Since 2010, Oriens has been acquiring medium-sized companies in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary and turned them into successful large ones. We have lifted these companies over the inflection point between a personality-led organization and an institutionalized one. We have thus debottlenecked the companies and facilitated their fast growth.
Currently, we own five companies, all of which are considerably bigger than upon acquisition. We are also proud that all of the original owners are happy with the development of their former company.
We pride ourselves on being intellectually honest, open to learning from others and speaking our minds. Also, we are all down-to-earth people who do not shy away from some supposedly low-value-added work. In short, we are owners, not professional service providers.

Oriens acquires 100% stakes in companies with a strong market position. We tend to take over from retiring owners who want to make sure that their companies have a stable and independent future, which also protects their employees. Oriens solidifies these companies’ systems and processes and places them on a path of organic growth as well as acquisitions.
Oriens, as a leading investor in the Central Eastern European region, has the responsibility to invest in companies which positively contribute to global sustainability goals. To enable this, sustainability goals are well integrated into all phases of our investment processes. Oriens considers ESG criteria and sustainability opportunities in the initial phase of the investment process and we incorporate these factors in our due diligence processes as well. Regular post-investment monitoring is also an important part of our responsible investment activities.
Showing our commitment to sustainability issues, Oriens became a PRI signatory in 2021.
