COMPUTER STAMM IS NOW PART OF FERNAO NETWORKS
Today, FERNAO Networks announced that Computer Stamm would be the latest addition to the FERNAO group.
The objective of this addition is to build a leading group of companies specializing in the consulting, planning, and implementation of IT projects, with a particular focus on IT networks/IT security and the operation of IT infrastructure. This is being achieved by making further acquisitions and investing into expansions, with growth capital supplied by the Munich-based investment company AUCTUS Capital Partners. The first “building block” of FERNAO’s buy-and-build strategy was magellan netzwerke GmbH, acquired at the end of last year.
The customer of both companies will benefit from these strong associations: their service and product portfolio has been expanded significantly, and their regional presence has increased. More than 150 employees at 7 locations are now available for customer projects; together, the group generates more than €50 million in sales over the previous financial year.
The merger also provides the group with top certifications from partnered manufacturers, enabling it to respond more flexibly to customer needs.
Andreas Stamm, the managing director of Computer Stamm, sees enormous benefits for his customers in this consolidation: “We are now in a position to increasingly offer IT security, monitoring/analysis, and a 24x7 Network Operation Center to our customers.”
“Now that Computer Stamm shares our objectives, we can now count expertise in VoIP and desktop solutions, as well as resources for comprehensive on-site services among our strengths,” says Stefan Ploder regarding the acquisition. Stefan Ploder serves as one of the managing directors of FERNAO Networks, alongside Nico Birk, Hendrik Sauer, and Ulrich Weller.
To expand the current management of Computer Stamm, David Hecker will begin as a new co-managing director, enabling him to contribute his experience in building business groups, while also performing similar responsibilities as one of the managing directors of FERNAO.
