Microsoft Cloud & Collaboration specialist BVKontent becomes part of FERNAO
Cologne, March 3rd, 2021
With the acquisition of BVKontent, the FERNAO Group is strengthening itself in the fast-growing Cloud Platform & Business Applications business segment. While in the first phase of the pandemic we focused on strengthening organic earnings power, with the acquisition of BVKontent we are consistently continuing the buy-and-build strategy we have been pursuing since 2016. The transaction brings the number of Addon acquisitions to 13, and the FERNAO group of companies now employs around 600 people at 20 locations in Germany, Switzerland, Canada and China.
BVKontent specialises in solving challenging tasks in the area of Microsoft Cloud and collaboration applications, in particular SharePoint, Microsoft365 and the Power Platform. In addition to consulting and implementation expertise, BVKontent supports Microsoft-related software development, as well as the operation of the environments. BVKontent's portfolio includes well-known corporate clients from the finance, insurance and chemical industries as well as public sector clients.
"With the acquisition of BVKontent, we are strengthening our existing and established security and cloud expertise with additional know-how in the area of Microsoft collaboration solutions, thereby achieving two things. On the one hand, our FERNAO portfolio grows and on the other hand, it is a consistent next step in the expansion of our holistic IT security strategy for further applications," explains FERNAO Managing Director Nico Birk.
As part of the transaction, the previous authorised signatories of BVKontent Hans Kredewahn and Robert Bloniarz will take over the management. The previous managing director and co-founder of BVKontent Robert Vossen is leaving the company.
"Joining the FERNAO group of companies allows us to participate in the synergy effects of the group. We see great added value for both sides in the partnership with FERNAO Networks - especially for our customers, who can now benefit from the comprehensive IT security expertise of the FERNAO Group," says Robert Bloniarz on the sale of BVKontent.
FERNAO Networks combines an unparalleled specialism in the business areas of Information Security Consulting & Testing, Full Service IT Security, Digital Infrastructure Services and Cloud Platform & Business Applications. The strong and focused growth strategy offers the long-standing customers of the individual companies a comprehensive portfolio focused on IT security.
