Syntax Systems (Syntax), a provider of cloud managed ERP services, is acquiring German IT services company Freudenberg IT (FIT), enabling Syntax to enter the SAP application market.
This acquisition expands Syntax's service offerings in the SAP market and complements existing business operations.
Syntax can now provide end to end solutions for customers, offering them flexibility with both Oracle and SAP ecosystem expertise and serve them worldwide. Additionally, Syntax will leverage their current Private, Hybrid and Public cloud capabilities to accelerate FIT's growth in SAP.
With more than 850 SAP professionals, FIT manages SAP applications in the Cloud for Enterprise customers in Europe, America and Asia.
This strategic acquisition enables both companies to combine their specific strengths and serve new markets with a growing portfolio.

This acquisition will enable us to increase our presence in geographies we had previously targeted for growth, such as Europe and Asia." says Christian Primeau, CEO of Syntax. "Their devotion to excellence combined with their expertise and strong customer focus and value for corporate social responsibility made it an obvious choice for Syntax."
