Unicon begins a new chapter with new owner / Strategic partnership with Fujitsu intensified
Germany, Karlsruhe, November 03, 2021 – Unicon continues to expand its position as leading technology company in the field of end-user computing with a new major shareholder. As the software company from Karlsruhe announced today, the management, together with a family-backed investor as partner, has acquired all shares in Unicon from Fujitsu Technology Solutions GmbH as of November 01, 2021. Parallel to the sale of the company shares, Fujitsu and Unicon have decided to further intensify their strategic partnership. All customer agreements will be continued without any changes. As a result of this reorganization the company will put an even stronger focus on the IT channel as part of the Unicon Partner Program.
Unicon was founded in 1993 and is a pioneer in Thin Client software. With the hardware agnostic operating system eLux and the management solution Scout, Unicon offers intuitive, secure and lean solutions for end-user computing, which are running effectively on more than two million devices worldwide.
“Unicon and Fujitsu share a very successful history and we will continue our close and trusting partnership in this new constellation. We offer our customers tailor-made solutions for the future of end-user computing with innovative hardware from Fujitsu and smart software from Unicon,” emphasizes Rupert Lehner, Head of Fujitsu Central Europe and Products Europe.
Unicon, together with its new partner, will be able to strive for growth while focusing on the following areas: The product portfolio as well as the Unicon Partner Program with its diverse network of technology- and OEM-partners, resellers and distributors will be extended. In addition, the company plans to strengthen its workforce and enter new markets, both nationally and globally. The close cooperation with Fujitsu will be extended and intensified. Unicon and Fujitsu have renewed their strategic partnership and as a result all customer agreements remain unchanged. Furthermore, customers of both partners will continue to have access to flexible, cost-effective and secure cloud computing solutions with Unicon software and Fujitsu hardware. In addition, Fujitsu remains one of the key distributors of Unicon products.
“We are enabling Unicon to grow independently at a self-determined pace and with a high degree of flexibility. Over the past 20 years, Unicon has established itself as a hidden champion of the IT landscape. We are concentrating on our strengths and our comprehensive know-how to open a new chapter for the company. With our product portfolio, a strong network of renowned partners and our new brand identity, we are perfectly positioned for future growth. Every day, we are working passionately to become even better – in the interests of our customers, who place their trust in us to scale, manage and secure their IT infrastructure,” says Philipp Benkler, Managing Director of Unicon.
