September 15, 2020 – Evernex, a leading European provider of third-party maintenance (TPM), and Technogroup IT-Service GmbH, the leading TPM provider in the D / A / CH region, have merged. The transaction has been approved by the antitrust authorities. This has created a new European market leader for third-party maintenance in the data center. Third-party maintenance is a service concept that offers, among other things, significant cost savings compared to manufacturer maintenance, which are necessary for many companies in the current situation.
The merger creates a global company with a very broad presence and unique expertise for cross-manufacturer technical services in the data center. “We are convinced that we complement each other very well – in our expertise, our portfolio and especially geographically, with a worldwide network that offers real global coverage. This will convince our customers of the advantages very quickly and open up unique growth opportunities for us, ”says Stanislas Pilot, President and CEO of Evernex, with certainty.
In addition to his role as CEO of Technogroup, Klaus Stöckert will take on the position of Managing Director of the Central, Eastern & Northern Europe region on the Executive Board of Evernex. “By merging with Evernex as a globally active company, we as Technogroup are strengthening our international presence and, as part of the Evernex Group, are offering even more attractive services for our customers and partners. At the same time, we keep the advantages of a medium-sized company that is always close to the customer, ”says Stöckert. “By bundling our strengths, we can make our expertise and service quality available to even more companies and expand the range of services.”
Evernex, headquartered in Paris, has a global network of 34 branches and 650,000 spare parts in more than 330 logistics locations. Technogroup has been on the market for 30 years and offers its 5,200 customers solutions such as maintenance, monitoring, network services and data center relocations. The core product of both companies – manufacturer-independent data center maintenance – is in demand. According to the Gartner analyst firm, the service offers potential savings of 50 to 70 percent compared to manufacturer maintenance. In addition, with TPM, the hardware can be used beyond the end of manufacturer support. This not only benefits the budget, but also the careful use of resources.
The fact that Technogroup is now part of the Evernex Group is also reflected in a new logo.
