Bibliotheca acquires Aturis

Share this on social media:

Bibliotheca Group has acquired Aturis Group, a provider of library solutions in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

With immediate effect, Aturis Netherlands BV and Aturis Belgium BvbA will be integrated directly into the Bibliotheca Group and will commence trading as local Bibliotheca entities, whilst Aturis Deutschland will merge with Bibliotheca Germany. All business units will have access to the full group product catalogue, and development has already begun to integrate existing Aturis products into the central Bibliotheca product line.

Thomas Aufermann, managing director for Bibliotheca Group Central Europe, will lead the new business units. He said: 'The opportunity to create functional and technological synergies between the existing teams and enlarge our market scope presents a great opportunity for our customers as well as for our business. We are looking forward to the joint engagement in the German, Dutch and Belgian market.'

Wim Markus, MD of Aturis, who will join the Bibliotheca Central Europe team, added: 'We are all incredibly excited by the opportunity to join the global library technology leader, a decision that will allow us to grow the business and offer a greater range of solutions to our customers.'
