CADCON changes its name to SIIPress 4. September 2017
Since 1 September 2017, the Bavarian engineering and IT group is operating worldwide under a new name
Augsburg, 4 September 2017 – Just a few weeks after relocating its head office from Gersthofen to Augsburg, CADCON takes the next step towards the future: With effect from 1 September, the Bavarian technology provider in the areas of development & IT, system solutions, production and human resources is called SII. This change aims to underscore ties to the parent company SII. Another priority is to optimise the leverage of technology and market synergies.
“After twenty successful years with CADCON, my decision to rename the business was admittedly not an easy one,” says Robert Bauer, Managing Partner of the new holding company SII Technologies GmbH and former CEO of CADCON Holding. “Ultimately, we made a name for ourselves with CADCON not just in the Augsburg region, but also throughout Germany and internationally. However, given that we are part of SII, a major international enterprise with its own strong brand, this is a logical step for us. It proclaims our affiliation and should accelerate the process of integration.”
Expansion of the customer base and IT expertise in focus
One key objective of the transition from the CADCON brand to the SII brand is to open up new target groups. “This consolidated corporate identity makes it easier for the SII Group to communicate the core expertise of CADCON to existing customers,” adds Robert Bauer. “Conversely, it puts us in a better position to address promising areas of industry. For instance, the SII Group is extremely well positioned in the IT sector. And particularly in the field of IoT/digitisation, we want to expand our expertise and activities even more dynamically and consistently as SII Technologies GmbH – as we have already done, for example, by cooperating with smart reality specialist XCYDE from Günzburg or by developing the ultra-modern Digital Beehive private cloud application”.
The new corporate structure
The new holding company, SII Technologies GmbH, comprises the former companies CADCON Holding GmbH, CADCON Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG and CADCON Personalgesellschaft mbH, which we have merged. In future, the German subsidiaries will be known as SII Systems GmbH (formerly CADCON Systems GmbH) and SII Precision Parts GmbH (formerly CADCON Maschinenbau GmbH). The foreign subsidiaries will also operate under the corresponding name with immediate effect.
