Saarbrücken location will expand Bechtle’s already dense network
Opportunity for further growth
Neckarsulm/Saarbrücken, 30 October 2015 – Bechtle will be opening the doors of its newest branch on 1 November, allowing Germany’s largest B2B IT service provider to better serve its customers in the German state of Saarland and the border regions of France and Luxembourg.
The new location also expands Bechtle’s already extensive network of IT system houses, which now has 48 locations in Germany alone. The Saarbrücken office is a branch of the Bechtle IT System House Mannheim, founded in 1994. It boasts a team of experienced specialists with close ties to the region. “This new location was founded on our policy of being as close to our customers as possible and offering them the full Bechtle Group service portfolio through regional contacts,” states Stephan Mauer, Managing Director of the Bechtle IT System House Mannheim.
Saarland’s economic structure makes it an attractive location for Bechtle, who has already carried out projects with SME and public-sector customers from this region. In order to capitalise on the region’s potential and ensure closer customer relationships, the decision was made to open a branch in the capital of Saarland. The Saarbrücken branch will also support businesses in the border regions shared with France and Luxembourg.
Located in the Sankt Arnual district, Bechtle’s newest location is equipped with a state-of-the-art infrastructure to meet all the technical and functional requirements of a cutting-edge IT service provider. “Our spacious offices provide an open, comfortable working environment. They will also be able to accommodate our planned future growth,” remarks Mr Mauer. Customers will benefit from the Bechtle IT System House Mannheim’s core areas of expertise: managed services, consulting services for collaboration solutions and IT strategy, technical consulting and IT training. They will also be offered the full portfolio of the Bechtle Group, which includes products sold by the Group’s Bechtle direct e-commerce subsidiaries.
