DIS Group acquires mpeople
DIS Group, which already owns Uni Consulting, has acquired mpeople and will merge the two consultancy and recruitment firms.
This acquisition will result in a merger of Uni Consulting and mpeople which will allow the two firms to solidify their position and take advantage of synergies from complementary elements of the two companies' markets and geographical locations. Uni Consulting's offices are in Aalborg, Kolding and Skanderborg, while mpeople has offices in Aarhus and Hillerød.
Since 2008, Uni Consulting has provided engineers and technical consultants for projects across Denmark and in many different sectors. mpeople has more than 20 years of experience with consultancy services, recruitment and software/electronics development with some of Denmark's largest and leading companies in the field of product development.
A brand with ambitious growth targets
From now on, the new company will operate as a single brand, 'mpeople', with both mpeople's founder and CEO Lars Blauenfeldt and Uni Consulting's Director Tommy Both Juul being part of the day to day management team.
- The new mpeople will focus on selling consultancy services and thereby also differentiate itself from DIS/CREADIS which is an international knowledge company which, among other things, supplies comprehensive technical solutions and advice to the industrial sector. As always, it will depend on the customer's specific needs whether they choose one solution or the other, says Søren Bunk, Director and partner of DIS Group.
Lars Blauenfeldt, the founder of mpeople, is looking forward to the opportunities that will open up from being sold to a larger company.
- I am looking forward to the collaboration and the future where we will be part of a larger group. These are two companies with strong balance sheets and ambitious growth targets that are merging, but with DIS Group behind us, we will have more opportunities to ensure growth in mpeople, making us an even more attractive business partner with both current and new clients, he says.
There is an increasing demand for flexible competencies in the technical fields, and this is precisely one of mpeople's strengths.
- At mpeople, we are specialists in consultancy services, recruitment and agile education in software and electronics development. We look forward to consolidating our position further in a consultancy sector that is going through changes and in a market that requires flexible solutions, fast response times and qualified consultants. Several of our clients are looking for a single point of contact when they need consultants, and we see it as a huge advantage that together we will cover all areas of expertise, says Tommy Both Juul, who has been Director at Uni Consulting since 2014.
The merger of Uni Consulting and mpeople will take place on October 1, 2019.
