The gateway to the world market opened

SAE IT–systems joins LACROIX Group

With its products and solutions for the application areas electricity, water, gas, district heating and infrastructure, SAE IT-systems has been known and successful in the German-speaking area for years.
In order to expand this success internationally, we were looking for a strategic partner who not only has the appropriate international structures and networks and fits in with us from a technological point of view, but who also has a similar corporate culture and business philosophy.

We found each other!

The entry of the French LACROIX Group results in outstanding opportunities and synergies: Together with LACROIX Sofrel, one of the leading providers of telecontrol solutions for the water and wastewater sector, SAE IT-systems reinforces the LACROIX Group’s activity related to the “Smart Environment”. Through the merger of technological expertise, specific solution competence and market access, both companies expect considerable growth potential - especially on the international market!

Vincent Bedouin (CEO of the LACROIX Group):

"Both companies need to get used to each other, to display our full potential. We share a similar philosophy with complementary offers and positioning. We aim at implementing synergies in a very pragmatic way in many areas such as product development or R&D. We have a lot in common: shared vision on the environment, complementary positions on the smart environment market and similar views on international development."

Joachim Schuster (Shareholder and Managing Director of SAE IT-systems):

"We, at SAE IT-systems, are really confident with this new step of our development. By sharing views and opportunities with LACROIX Group, we will be able to expand on strategic markets and address new opportunities. Our future is looking bright."

Vincent Bedouin (CEO of the LACROIX Group):

"Smart environment is a growing market, with a huge need of connected technologies to face critical issues of our planet. To tackle our future challenges, we need to reach a critical size, an international positioning and keep a high level of expertise. SAE IT-systems is the best partner to achieve this strategy!"

On 31th of January 2019, Vincent Bedouin the CEO of LACROIX Group and Joachim Schuster Shareholder and Managing Director of SAE IT-systems sealed the common future. Mr. Schuster continues to hold 30% of the shares and remains Managing Director together with Mr. Callegari. SAE IT-systems will be integrated as a distinct entity. Our customers will benefit from the bundling of the know-how of both companies. The brand, our products and our contact persons will continue to be at your disposal as usual.
