SSII acquired by a technology company | Northwest Deals
Greater Manchester-based Odema, which is an IT supplier to McDonald’s, has been taken over by a global technology company.
Acrelec, a software and hardware service provider, has finalized the acquisition of the IT services company based in Altrincham.
The purchase of Odema was described as a “significant strategic shift” for Acrelec.
The restaurant and retail technology leader is enhancing its UK service capabilities, while expanding McDonald’s existing UK business.
Odema specializes in IT deployment, including systems maintenance and support, and remains one of McDonald’s preferred IT vendors.
The acquisition of Odema means that Acrelec UK will now have two offices, technical centers and distribution centers in the country, adding Greater Manchester to the existing Hemel Hempstead site.
Acrelec said this allows it to further increase its logistics capabilities and provide greater efficiency to all customers.
As part of the acquisition, key members of the Odema team will continue to work alongside the Acrelec team. The name, people and core business of McDonald’s UK will remain the same for Odema.
Odema, since its inception in 2006, has opened over 700 restaurants and drive-throughs for McDonald’s UK.
Nigel Davis, CEO of Odema, said, “I am extremely proud that Acrelec is taking over and continuing to build Odema’s legacy. I look forward to seeing many great successes from his employees, his company and his customers.
Anna Warren, Managing Director of Acrelec UK&ROI, added: “Bringing together the excellence of skills and capabilities of Acrelec and Odema enables us to reach our collective full potential and drive business results.
Advisers for the deal have yet to be disclosed.
