Broadcast Solutions GmbH has acquired the system integration division of Thum+Mahr GmbH in Monheim, Germany, effective immediately. After more than 40 years of activity, the managing partners of Thum+Mahr, Peter Thum and Hanno Mahr have decided to continue the system integration division in the future under the umbrella of the Broadcast Solutions Group and thus also arrange the business succession. Thum+Mahr will continue at the Monheim am Rhein location as an independent subsidiary of the Broadcast Solutions Group with an existing experienced team of 18 employees.
Peter Thum and Hanno Mahr will continue to support the company as advisors. Stefan Mertens, who has also been managing director of Thum+Mahr since 2004, will continue to manage the company as COO. Stefan Breder, CEO of the Broadcast Solutions Group, will act as CEO of Thum+Mahr.
Respond to customers’ needs
“I am very much looking forward to further developing Thum+Mahr in my new function and the new constellation. I’m sure that the cooperation 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 companies say cooperation between them will result in far-reaching positive synergy effects for all their customers and will allow them to handle larger projects together.
