r2pTracking ApS strengthens its position as a leading tracking provider with the acquisition of Aktiv Connect A/S
On January the 3rd 2022, the Danish company Aktiv Connect A/S was acquired by r2pTracking ApS. The company is part of r2p Group with headquarters in Flensburg, Germany and owned by HQ Equita.
With the acquisition, r2pTracking expands its activities in the Nordic region and strengthens its position as a leading supplier in the market. Aktiv Connect is a strong partner, as both companies offer unique knowledge within GPS tracking, online logbook, insurance tracking, and fleet management for business clients.
Best of Both Worlds
As part of this new collaboration, r2pTracking’s GPS solutions are now sold through Avant Denmark A/S and biludstyr.dk, which in addition to tracking hardware also distributes car accessories through wholesales and dealerships. Brian Thaysen, owner and Managing Director of Avant Denmark A/S says the following about the sale of Aktiv Connect and their future role in the acquisition: “We get to do the part we are good at - selling accessories and shipping it to our customers. The combined effort on sales and r2p's competencies in terms of subscription business and software development, means that we can benefit from the best of both worlds”.
As part of the acquisition, employees from Aktiv Connect A/S will become an integral part of r2pTracking's sales and technical support team. The employees from both companies are already in the process of planning the merger of the two companies and look forward to the collaboration at the office in Viborg. “It is with great pleasure that we can welcome our new colleagues to r2pTracking. We expect that the acquisition of Aktiv Connect A/S will strengthen both companies and create significant value for our customers,” comments Bjarne Nielsen, Managing Director at r2pTracking ApS. "At the same time, we will see that the acquisition will have synergy effects in the form of a more automated processing of incoming orders and in the development of improved distribution channels".
