Munich / Gundel­fin­gen a.d. Donau — The NOBIX Group (“NOBIX”) has successfully acqui­red the company KUHN IT (“KUHN IT”), ther­eby conso­li­da­ting its market posi­tion in the Mana­ged IT Services sector. The acqui­si­tion is a signi­fi­cant step in the imple­men­ta­tion of the growth stra­tegy of the NOBIX system house group, which was foun­ded by Liberta Part­ners (“LIBERTA”). NOBIX is a pioneer in the digi­ta­liza­tion of opera­tio­nal proces­ses and busi­ness infor­ma­tion in the SME sector. KUHN IT will conti­nue to operate inde­pendently and will remain under the proven manage­ment of Thilo Kuhn.

KUHN IT, based in Welz­heim near Stutt­gart, is one of Germany’s leading DATEV Solu­tion and Corpo­rate Part­ners. The focus is on tax consul­tants, audi­tors, law firms and their clients. In addi­tion to SaaS inter­faces and mana­ged services in the DATEV envi­ron­ment, the company also offers tradi­tio­nal IT services and infra­struc­ture sales. KUHN IT has estab­lished itself as a relia­ble part­ner in the region, known for its inno­va­tive strength, quality stan­dards and first-class custo­mer service. Thanks to its own soft­ware deve­lo­p­ment depart­ment, KUHN IT GmbH crea­tes added value for its custo­mers and maxi­mi­zes the depth of inte­gra­tion of the DATEV products used.

Thilo Kuhn is deligh­ted with the take­over: “We see NOBIX as a future-orien­­ted part­ner in a dyna­mic market. The poten­tial of the merger and the sustainable deve­lo­p­ment of the indi­vi­dual compa­nies convin­ced us to become part of this strong group. Our custo­mers and part­ners can be sure that we will conti­nue to provide them with relia­ble support. Toge­ther, we are a major player in the German system house market.”

NOBIX’s vision is to become one of the leading system house groups in the DACH region. NOBIX relies on the synergy of three central busi­ness areas: Mana­ged Print Services (“MPS”), Data Manage­ment Solu­ti­ons (“DMS”) and IT Services. The group of compa­nies, consis­ting of Kemm­ler Kopier Systeme, System­haus Bissin­ger, DRUCK-LOS and KUHN IT, posi­ti­ons itself as a compre­hen­sive solu­tion provi­der for its more than 7,500 custo­mers. The plan­ned growth will be driven by stra­te­gic acqui­si­ti­ons, with a focus on poten­tial compa­nies in the IT services sector.

Jörg Radler, Mana­ging Direc­tor of NOBIX, comm­ents on the acqui­si­tion as follows: “The acqui­si­tion of KUHN IT is a great step in our stra­te­gic deve­lo­p­ment into an IT system house leader. We look forward to pursuing this path toge­ther with the KUHN IT team.”

Nils von Wietz­low, Part­ner at LIBERTA and respon­si­ble for succes­sion situa­tions, adds: “The acqui­si­tion of KUHN IT is an ideal, both regio­nal and stra­te­gic addi­tion to NOBIX. The growth stra­tegy of the system house group will thus be driven forward in a targe­ted manner.”
