NETSTOCK Acquires NETSTOCK Europe
London, UK and Dortmund, Germany – NETSTOCK is proud to announce the acquisition of NETSTOCK Europe. The acquisition allows us to accelerate growth in Germany, while continuing to invest in our NETSTOCK app.
NETSTOCK Europe helps its customers manage over $500 million of inventory through the Company’s Software-as-a-Service platform. The risk-based inventory and demand forecasting solution is used by customers in distribution, manufacturing, retail, and warehousing to minimize stock-outs, reduce excess inventory, and improve time to order. NETSTOCK Europe has over 150 customers, including companies and brands such as Lampenwelt, Villeroy & Boch, Jacob Sönnichsen, Fehlig Agrar-Ersatzteilmarkt, Horror-Shop.com, Vitavia, and PowrX.
NETSTOCK Europe’s solutions enable inventory planners to focus on the items that matter by leveraging inventory best practices that have been adapted in the platform. These best practices are traditionally available to only the largest of enterprise customers. The NETSTOCK solution is easy-to-install and integrates with 40 different ERPs and providers.
Jörg Salomo, Founder of NETSTOCK Europe, has this to say about the acquisition:
“We’re excited to join with the worldwide NETSTOCK family. The German speaking market has massive potential and having established NETSTOCK as a significant provider we can now use this opportunity to grow substantially, thus enabling more and more customers to better plan their inventory.”
In his new role, Jörg will be responsible for Sales and Business Development in Europe.
NETSTOCK Group CEO, Tony Sinton, has to say about the acquisition:
“I am delighted to welcome Jörg and his team to our group. NETSTOCK Europe is an important territory for our future growth given the number of small to medium size companies that are looking to improve the performance of their supply chains. The volatility both in supply and demand, as a result of the pandemic, has create enormous interest in how to improve planning and better manage cash. We intend to invest in NETSTOCK Europe in order to take advantage of the exciting opportunity we see and to build on the success we have enjoyed over the past few years”
