The Hamburg-based Körber Group is acquiring a part of the company Aldata Retail Solutions GmbH, Stuttgart, Germany. The 32 employees of the Industry Logistics Business Unit, which specializes in software integration, are to be taken over effective November 1, 2012 and integrated into a new company named Aberle Software GmbH. With this measure, the technology group Körber is further expanding the Intralogistics Business Unit of its Körber Process Solutions Division.
Körber Process Solutions is strengthening its activities in the intralogistics field: in addition to the transport and palletizing solutions provider Langhammer GmbH, Eisenberg, it also acquired the Leingarten-based company Aberle GmbH in June 2012. The latter is a system integrator for automation solutions in the intralogistics field.
Aberle Software GmbH is another ideal addition to this. The Stuttgart-based company specializes in technology solutions in the fields of inventory management, inventory control, data transmission and pick-by-voice. Its know-how relates to the integration of software into the existing IT landscape of its customers. In this conjunction, SAP is a key field of expertise. Rolf Wochner, previously Managing Director of Aldata Retail Solutions, will head the company Aberle Software GmbH.
“We are delighted that by founding Aberle Software GmbH we have strategically further strengthened our Intralogistics Business Unit,” said Hildemar Böhm, who is a member of the Körber Executive Board and responsible for the Körber Process Solutions Division.
The Körber Group is an international technology group with around 9,600 employees worldwide. Sales in fiscal year 2011 totaled almost €2 billion. Körber Process Solutions is a division of the Körber Group. The division is active around the world with systems and solutions for the converting and packaging of tissue and hygiene products, mail solutions as well as intralogistics applications and electronics manufacturing.
