“Atos Origin in top three current rankings for Germany”
Essen, 10 July 2006
Top ranking for Atos Origin in Germany: leading international IT services provider Atos Origin is number three in the current Lünendonk list of the top 25 IT consultancy and system integration companies in Germany. The company's market position reflects the record year enjoyed by Atos Origin in Germany in 2005.
Total sales for the region including activities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Poland increased from around EUR 334 million to EUR 562 million last year. The enormous growth was driven by the signing of a number of significant contracts with companies such as KarstadtQuelle AG or the Pay-TV broadcaster Premiere.
“We now intend to consolidate our market position,” said Gerhard Fercho, the recently appointed Chief Executive Officer of Atos Origin in Germany & Central Europe. “To do this we will have to continue to play to our strengths. As well as our detailed knowledge of our customers' markets, we will concentrate on ‘softer' corporate skills, such as the smooth integration of our employees from different corporate cultures or the establishment of partnership-based relationships with customers and long-term collaboration.”
In the Lünendonk list for the previous year, Atos Origin was four places lower at number seven.
