Itancia announces the acquisition of Software Technology Ressources (STR)

01 October 2020

As part of its European growth strategy and with the aim of broadening its offering of value-added technology products and solutions, Itancia is acquiring the business of Software Technology Ressources (STR), a subsidiary of the German group Softline.

Itancia expands its portfolio of technological offer

With this acquisition, Itancia integrates the distribution of professional software as well as all associated services such as consulting, training and user support. STR logically completes the product and service offers of the Itancia group.

For strategic reasons, our group, Softline AG, is withdrawing from the software distribution market to focus exclusively on the growth of its consulting portfolio. With immediate effect, the Itancia Group will take over our software distribution business. We will continue to work together on projects related to the French market. In the future, these projects will be supported by the DACH region of the Softline Group. We are delighted to hand over this business to the Itancia Group, which will be able to support our customers and meet their specific needs.” explains Martin Schaletzky, CEO of Softline AG.

This new acquisition marks a key step for Itancia as it continues to develop innovative solutions and value-added services that respect the environment.

Over the years, STR has built a strong reputation in its market around core competencies. We continue to position ourselves as a global player covering all customer needs in IT, telecom and cybersecurity.

Thierry Le Goff, General Manager Itancia
