Nuremberg/ Augsburg — Nuremberg-based IT monitoring specialist Paessler AG (“Paessler”) has acquired all shares in Augsburg-based start-up Qbilon. The parties have agreed not to disclose the volume of the deal.
The start-up was founded in 2019 by Dr. Melanie Langermeier, Dr. Simon Lohmüller, Dr. Thomas Driessen and Dr. Julian Kienberger as part of an EXIST research transfer project at the University of Augsburg and will continue to be headquartered in Augsburg after the sale.
