Aricoma, part of KKCG, strengthens its SAP offering with the acquisition of Consulting 4U
Prague, Olomouc, April 13, 2023 – Aricoma, a leading ICT services provider and part of KKCG Group, has acquired 100% of Consulting 4U (C4U). The Olomouc based company specializes in analysis, implementation and support of SAP solutions. This is Aricoma's second completed acquisition in this area this year.
C4U was founded in 2000. It consists of twenty consultants with extensive knowledge of SAP application components, technologies and products and business processes of companies from a wide range of industries. Its clients include Mattoni, Heineken, Tescoma, Linet and many other major companies in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
In Aricoma, C4U becomes another part of the SAP business unit alongside the recently acquired Sabris Consulting. While the two companies will operate separately under their own names, they will benefit from synergies within the joint business unit. All five original owners will remain in C4U after the acquisition and will continue to be actively involved in its further development.
"C4U's consulting team has always enjoyed an exceptional reputation. We are therefore very pleased that shortly after the completion of the transaction with Sabris Consulting we were able to acquire a full stake in C4U and thus strengthen our SAP team with additional top experts in this area," said Milan Sameš, CEO of Aricoma.
"Together with our existing SAP team, we will now be able to offer our clients high quality services across virtually the entire standard SAP application portfolio with guaranteed availability in all key project positions," added Karol Kubeczka, head of the SAP business unit at Aricoma.
"Becoming part of the strong Aricoma group is a significant step for the company and I think it is very good news for our customers and employees. After a period of high stability and superior business results, this alliance will allow us to continue our strategic growth," commented Martin Kopka, one of the majority owners and current CEO of C4U, who will continue to lead the company.
