Valuechain are happy to announce the start of our buy & build strategy with the recent acquisition of Tricorn Systems.
The acquisition follows several successful product pilots with Bentley Motors, Bombardier Aerospace and hundreds of manufacturing SMEs, demonstrating the market-readiness of Valuechain's own app technology. The buy and build strategy, which is focused on leveraging existing client bases to promote viral growth, is part of a multi-stream growth strategy.
Tricorn Systems Ltd, based in Surrey, has been providing enterprise solutions to manufacturing SMEs for more than 20 years. Valuechain currently has three divisions: Business and Supply Chain Intelligence, for larger manufacturing organisations and industry associations; Valuechain App Store, providing productivity improvement solutions for manufacturing companies at all tiers of the supply chain; and Enterprise Systems for manufacturing SMEs, to streamline and control business processes.
Discussing the deal, Tom Dawes, CEO of Valuechain explained:
"Tricorn deeply understand manufacturing SMEs and have developed a very loyal client base through continuous technology innovation and excellent customer service. By joining forces we can immediately offer an enhanced support team, additional productivity improvement solutions and a collaborative platform to connect with supply chain partners.
The Tricorn team is well established and we plan to build on this core infrastructure to scale up our operations in the UK and overseas through strategic global partnerships. This is the first of several acquisitions we have planned to consolidate niche technology companies that service the manufacturing SME sector. We are really excited about the journey we have started."
