Comprehensive solutions for urban waste management

In June 2012, Miura Private Equity and Demeter Partners acquire a majority stake in Contenur, at that time the leading Southern European company in the manufacturing of containers and services to the waste collection industry.

Miura and Demeter´s shared project with Contenur’s Management team, was aimed at consolidating its international expansion, and at expanding its presence to Latam, Asia and Middle East. In 2013, with the acquisition of Contemar Ambiental, the leading Brazilian company in the sector, Contenur turned to be the sole relevant player with direct presence in Brazil, capitalizing its growth in the Latin American market, and securing an international strategic position.

In recent years, Contenur has experienced a significant organic growth, with the opening of a new production plant in Poland, the launch of new products and the opening of subsidiaries in Colombia, Singapore and Czech Republic, as well as its expansion to Latam, Asia and Middle East.

After 5 years with Miura, Contenur become one of the European leaders in the design, manufacturing and sale of containers, reaching sales of €100 million in 2017 and doubling its EBITDA.
