Acquisition of EBM in Austria

Visiativ strenghtens its positions in the DACH region with the acquisition of EBM

Visiativ announces today the acquisition of Austrian company EBM GmbH, a long-standing distributor and integrator of Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA and SOLIDWORKS solutions. This acquisition is in line with Visiativ’s international expansion strategy (36% of business outside France in 2022). The acquisition of EBM strengthens the Group’s presence in the DACH region (Germany – Austria – Switzerland), just over a year after the merger with MB CAD in Germany, Europe’s largest industrial market.

Founded in 1994 by its CEO Günther Müller, EBM is a value-added reseller (VAR) of CATIA and SOLIDWORKS softwares.
EBM employs 24 people at its four sites in Austria: Vienna, Bad Bleiberg, Traun and Melk.

 

Historically a CATIA integrator, EBM has operated on the Austrian market for 29 years and has recently become a SOLIDWORKS integrator. The company boasts solid technical expertise (91 Dassault Systèmes certifications).

 

EBM built up a relationship of trust with around 400 customers, mainly Austrian SMEs and ETIs in the automotive, aerospace, industrial equipment and technical sectors.
EBM achieved sales of €6.1 million in 2022, 60% of which were recurring.

The acquisition of 90% of EBM’s capital, which will be consolidated from 1st July 2023, is financed entirely in cash.
