Broadcast Solutions took over the system integration division of Thum + Mahr in Monheim on July 1, 2022. After more than 40 years of successful activity, the managing partners of Thum + Mahr, Peter Thum and Hanno Mahr, have decided to continue the system integration area under the umbrella of the Broadcast Solutions Group in the future and thus to regulate the succession.
Thum + Mahr will be continued at the Monheim am Rhein location as an independent subsidiary of the Broadcast Solutions Group with the existing experienced team of 18 employees. Peter Thum and Hanno Mahr continue to support the company with their many years of experience in an advisory capacity. Stefan Mertens, who has also been Managing Director of Thum + Mahr since 2004, will continue to run the company as COO. Stefan Breder, CEO of the Broadcast Solutions Group, acts as CEO of Thum + Mahr GmbH.
»I look forward to further developing Thum + Mahr GmbH in my new function and in the new constellation. I am sure that the cooperation between the two companies will only have positive effects for our customers. Together we can act more flexibly and more powerfully on the market and respond even more individually to the needs of our customers," comments Stefan Mertens, COO of Thum + Mahr.
»With Thum + Mahr GmbH we welcome an experienced team under the umbrella of Broadcast Solutions GmbH; this has many advantages. The fields of activity of both companies complement each other perfectly. In this way, we can jointly push our activities in the German-speaking area as well as internationally,” comments Stefan Breder, CEO of the Broadcast Solutions Group.
From the point of view of the companies, the cooperation that has now been decided between Thum + Mahr and the Broadcast Solutions Group will result in far-reaching positive synergy effects from which the customers of both companies will also benefit. The aim of the realignment is to offer customers even better services and to be able to handle larger projects smoothly. In addition, it is the declared plan to open up new customer groups with the merger, according to the companies.
