Infolog joins Var Group (Sesa Group)
VAR Group has acquired a 51% stake in Infolog and strengthened the Sesa Group’s presence in the Industry 4.0 warehouse logistics solutions market in Italy and abroad.
Infolog, a Modena-based software house specialising in the design and development of solutions for warehouse logistics management, announced on 15 May an agreement for the acquisition of a 51% stake by Var Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Sesa Group (a strategic partner in the Software and System Integration sector with a consolidated turnover of over 1.5 billion euros).
Founded in the 1990s, Infolog employs over 40 people and serves more than 200 customers across a range of manufacturing sectors, including ceramics, where Intellimag WMS software is already a benchmark product. The acquisition of a stake in Infolog will allow Var Group to complete its software offering in the Enterprise and SME market, while Infolog will further consolidate the development of its on-premise and Cloud solutions for Intra-Logistics and value-added management.
“We expect to see a sharp acceleration of growth in both revenue generation and human capital, with a consequent increase in our market presence in Italy and abroad,” commented Infolog CEO Giorgio Tesorieri. “The operation is part of a long-term plan aimed at developing further skills in the field of digitalisation and automation of logistics processes for the benefit of the Group’s customers and the most important Italian manufacturing districts.”
“Innovative technologies and specific knowledge of business processes are needed to support businesses facing the challenges of the New Normal Economy and the reopening of Italian manufacturing districts,” said Var Group’s CEO Francesca Moriani. “Infolog’s skills will be enhanced within our organisation as part of a development plan focused on industrial continuity and growth of human capital,” she continued.
“In the current scenario we will continue to use the lever of external growth based on our ability to identify companies with integrable industrial projects, thereby furthering our long-term sustainable growth path to the benefit of all stakeholders,” added Alessandro Fabbroni, CEO of Sesa.
