GBC Gruppe entered into an agreement to acquire Maxxys. The acquisition is the third in GBC’s buy and build story and added a managed services provider with a focus on infrastructure and security managed services to the group.
Pride Capital Partners continues to support GBC’s buy and build strategy. The investment will enable GBC on its path to building a leading IT managed services group in the market with a clear focus on added customer value and the creation of a preferred place to work for talents.
Maxxys is founded in 2002 and is located in Butzbach, Germany. The company offers services and consulting for endpoint management, service management, security, operation and automation. The product portfolio consists of well-known software solutions such as USU, DriveLock and invanti, thereby serving large blue chip customer base.
According to Pascal Bechtel (CEO GBC Gruppe) , this acquisition fits in the ambitions of the organization: “We are pleased to embark on this joint path with Maxxys, as we will be able to significantly expand our expertise in the area of security and operations and provide our customers with a broader portfolio.”
Bernhard Bock, CEO of Maxxys, will stay on board to support future growth: “We want to take Maxxys AG to the next level to support SMEs even better with the expert team of the entire GBC Group. The merger allows us to expand and broaden our business. We look forward to leveraging synergies for the benefit of our customers.”
Lars van ‘t Hoenderdaal, Managing Partner Pride Capital Partners, likes to emphasize that “GBC management is able to build a strong managed service group in the DACH region with a profitable and recurring business model. We are enthusiastic in supporting GBC in this strategic acquisition, as well as future acquisitions”.
