LEKAB acquires the German company Topcom Kommunikationssysteme GmbH

LEKAB announces today that the company have acquired 100% of the German company Topcom Kommunikationssysteme GmbH (Topcom), strengthening our position as a specialist provider of business messaging and process automation in Northern Europe. 

Wednesday, June 19th, 2024

LEKAB Communication Systems AB (LEKAB) and Topcom will become one of the few providers to fully invest in customised solutions to improve internal and external communication processes as well as intelligent document management and business process management (BPM). The companies are convinced that the merger will bring significant benefits for customers and partners. The expanded product range and increased innovative strength of the new company will open up many joint opportunities for exciting new projects.

The acquisition is a natural next step in the group's strategic growth plan – establishing a presence in Northern Europe to support our customers and partners in business messaging and process automation.

"The two companies provide similar services in their respective markets. This will create even better conditions to assist existing and new customers and partners in our region – Northern Europe. We also see significant potential to achieve economies of scale as our shared in-house developed communication platform and 24/7 operational organisation are utilised in more markets and by more customers", says LEKAB's Director of the Board, Pekka Ollila.


Ralf Boeing, CEO of Topcom, will continue to manage the German operations from the headquarters in Düsseldorf.

"The merger with our long-standing companion LEKAB marks a significant milestone in our company history. Together, we are creating a strong IT provider that will offer innovative solutions in the areas of intelligent document management and business process automation (BPM) with bundled expertise and expanded capacities. We firmly believe that this union will not only open up new business opportunities for us, but also take our collaboration with our customers and partners to a new level and across borders. We look forward to a successful future and to working with you to further increase the efficiency and productivity of your business processes”, says Ralf Boeing, CEO of Topcom Kommunikationssysteme GmbH.

Mats Engström, CEO of LEKAB AB, welcomes Topcom GmbH:

"This acquisition is an exciting step in our company group's journey. It creates new opportunities for profitable growth by expanding our presence in the German market with our Smart Messaging services via our CPaaS platform. Additionally, it strengthens our offerings in Business Process Automation and conversational messaging. We see significant potential in these converging business areas and can now offer our customers the next generation of value propositions".
