GBC Group acquires Bolde GmbH


Pride Capital Partners supports GBC Group on its sixth acquisition in their ongoing expansion strategy, expanding their family of companies to include managed services company Bolde GmbH. This strategic merger expands GBC Groups presence to eight locations across Germany, from Munich to Kiel, growing the team to around 170 employees. Pride Capital invested in the GBC Group in February 2022 and since then has been their financial partner, supporting them on their autonomous and buy-and-build strategy.

Bolde GmbH provides managed services for SME customers with a focus on IT-outsourcing. Bolde strengthens GBC Group's managed services capabilities, enabling them to offer clients an even broader and more diverse product portfolio.

Managing Director of the GBC Group, Pascal Bechtel: "We are proud to add Bolde GmbH to our group of companies. This step fits perfectly into our strategy and strengthens our position in the managed services sector. It expands our offering and our reach, enabling us to provide enhanced and customized solutions to our customers. I am convinced that this is an important step for our further growth.".

Founder of Bolde GmbH, Henrik Bolde: "When I decided together with our operations manager that we wanted to join an existing system house group, it was important to me that the strengths and scaling opportunities in our business model were seen and, above all, that there was a cultural fit. With over 130 long-standing and satisfied contract customers, we have made a name for ourselves in the region and act as a powerful IT department for our customers. As the digitalization topics and requirements are not getting any less, we can continue to grow together with our customers in the coming years." These words emphasize the positive direction and common goals that are being pursued through the merger.

Managing Partner at Pride Capital Partners, Lars van ‘t Hoenderdaal: "We are pleased to continue supporting GBC Group with our flexible capital solution on their strategy to become the leading managed services group in the DACH region.”
