[Lucerne, August 1st, 2023] - Connect44 Group, one of Europe’s largest E2E telco solutions providers for plan, build and manage, is proud to announce the 100% acquisition of AMG Engineering, a leading mobile planning and site design company, headquartered in Spain with operations in Germany and Poland. With this acquisition, Connect44 enhances its strategic value proposition of Plan-Build-Manage, providing an integrated range of mobile and fixed network planning, design, acquisition, build, operations management and field services across 11 countries in Europe. AMG Engineering will be fully integrated into Connect44 as a business unit named Connect44 Design & Planning Solutions under the supervision of Manuel Cespedes, Managing Director, who will report to Francis Schmeer, Group CEO of Connect44.
As a single source supplier, Connect44 provides vendor-agnostic solutions to mobile operators, tower companies, fixed-line players, and network equipment vendors, thus reducing procurement costs, both in time and unitary costs, while owning more of the supply chain. Customers can now benefit from customized and integrated end-to-end network planning, build, and management services that drive the quality of network performance and increased efficiencies.
This purchase is a significant milestone for Connect44 as it completes the company’s ‘Build’ solutions portfolio, enabling them to bid for site design projects independently or as part of larger bundled projects. It brings valuable expertise and knowledge to strengthen Connect44's Mobile Site Build business.
With AMG's client and sub-contractor relationships in Germany, Connect44 will expand its business in the region, providing increased value to customers. AMG's presence in Poland also provides Connect44 with a legal entity and skilled workforce, thus facilitating expansion and new project opportunities.
Overall, this acquisition enhances Connect44's capabilities, offering a more comprehensive range of services to customers while leveraging AMG's expertise for growth and expansion.
