Broadcast Solutions acquires Germany’s Thum + Mahr
Broadcast Solutions has acquired the system integration division of Thum + Mahr.
Thum + Mahr will continue to operate from its Monheim am Rhein, Germany, location as an independent subsidiary of the Broadcast Solutions Group with an existing experienced team of 18 employees. Managing partners Peter Thum and Hanno Mahr will support the company as advisors. Stefan Mertens, who has been managing director of Thum + Mahr since 2004, will continue to manage the business as COO. Stefan Breder, CEO of the Broadcast Solutions Group, will act as CEO of Thum + Mahr.
“I am very much looking forward to further developing Thum + Mahr in my new function and the new constellation. I am sure that the co-operation of both companies will only positively affect our customers. Together we can act more flexibly and more strongly on the market and respond even more individually to our customers’ needs, ” said Mertens.
“With Thum + Mahr, we welcome an experienced team under the umbrella of Broadcast Solutions; this has many advantages. The fields of activity of both companies complement each other perfectly. Thus, we can jointly push our activities in the German-speaking region and the international field,” said Breder.
The co-operation is expected to benefit customers of both companies. The realignment aims to offer them even better services and to be able to handle larger projects smoothly. In addition, the declared plan is also to open up new customer groups with the merger.
