Growth through innovation and the commercialisation of new ideas is a cornerstone of Caparo’s long term business strategy. Therefore the business has always been keen to invest in products and services that strengthen its portfolio and geographic reach. As a result Caparo has both direct and indirect interest into a diverse range of companies, from film distribution to private equity investment.
In the pursuit of taking new ideas to market, at the beginning of 2003 Caparo established ‘The Caparo Innovation Centre’ as a collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton. The Centre is an imaginative new approach to turning product ideas into business realities.
