Tecsys becomes part of international IT company
The Danish IT company Tecsys has just been acquired by Tecsys, a Canadian company that provides supply chain solutions primarily to the North American market. Tecsys has been supplying the European market with warehouse management, transport management and labelling solutions, both software and hardware, for almost 30 years. The solutions ensure that more than 1,000 companies have an efficient and robust supply chain.
The purpose of the acquisition is to better support the international market by having a local presence in both the North American and European markets. Peter Brereton, CEO of Tecsys explains the choice of Tecsys: “The addition of Tecsys to our supply chain family gives us a number of competent employees and well-functioning solutions that we can offer to our existing North American market and the acquisition will greatly strengthen our position, especially in the European market.”
More choice on the shelves
Tecsys is not changing its business, name or management. Tecsys consists of 35 employees who will continue to run the business from Denmark, so for customers the acquisition will primarily mean more opportunities for international support and the possibility to buy into a larger product portfolio. At Tecsys, around 420 employees work with solutions in warehouse management, transport and distribution solutions, consumption and delivery management, store order management, financial systems and statistics solutions.
Ulrik Havsager, Sales Director at Tecsys, explains, “Being part of a larger international group means that we get to expand our competencies and support capabilities. I see the change as positive for our customers, who will have more options to buy from us in the future. You could say that the range on the shelves has expanded.”
Customers remain in focus
Tecsys is a customer-focused company that values long-term customer relationships and works to maintain high customer satisfaction. “It has been essential for us in the ownership circle that Tecsys has the same culture and values as Tecsys. Both companies have always valued customer satisfaction and have many long-standing customer relationships. Our combined solutions will be a strong offering to both a Danish and an international market”, explains Klaus Juhl, CEO of Tecsys, “Also the employee culture matches ours very well and we hope that our employees look positively on the new international opportunities for career and sparring with colleagues on the other side of the Atlantic.”
