Neckarsulm/St. Pölten, 24.08.2010 — Bechtle AG is expanding with the latest acquisition of HTH Consulting GmbH with headquarters in St. Pölten, Austria. HTH Consulting employs 10 IT specialists who are trained in the field of IT system integration and consultation. Founded in 1999 by Herbert Thallauer, the company has made virtualisation its core business. HTH has earned a wide customer base, offering a comprehensive range of services in both planning and the implementation of IT solutions. In 2009 the profitable system house generated roughly three million euros in revenue. The parties agreed to keep the purchase price confidential.


The company founder Herbert Thallauer remains at the helm: “I'm very pleased to be partnering up with Bechtle AG. Being affiliated with such a strong parent company will provide us with excellent growth opportunities. For our customers, as well as our employees, it will mean more stability and security, and it will let us expand our range of services.”


This acquisition falls in line with Bechtle's ongoing strategy to bolster and solidify its presence in the D-A-CH region. In 2008 Bechtle moved into the Austrian market with the acquisition of two system houses. Today's Bechtle Vienna is the result of the successful integration of the 2008 acquisition.

HTH is a certified Citrix Platinum, VMware Enterprise and Microsoft Gold Partner.
