Once the regular business operations of MultiVision had been resumed and stabilized in October under auspices of preliminary insolvency practitioner Martin Lambrecht (of LEONHARDT Rechtsanwälte), the subsequent investor negotiations have shown success: MultiVision becomes DEKOM, the Hamburg-based company was awarded the contract on Friday.

The acquisition by DEKOM is an optimal solution for the workforce, as it secures the roundly 50 jobs at MultiVision: all employees of MultiVision GmbH are enabled to remain in employment on their existing contractual terms. "As insolvency practitioners, we always aim to achieve the optimal result for all parties to the proceedings. The employees of MultiVision could not have wished for a better solution than DEKOM" Lambrecht comments. "We gain a team of highly experienced and qualified employees with long-standing customer relationships, who conversely benefit from the development opportunities offered by our company size. I am sure that both employees and customers will feel at home with us" says Jörg Weisflog, CEO of DEKOM AG.

As a system house for media and conference technology, MultiVision develops demanding solutions in the audiovisual sector for renowned customers, including numerous DAX-listed companies. The proven name of MultiVision is retained and will be continued as an own brand - which perfectly enhances the DEKOM portfolio: the Hamburg-based company is one of the most successful and most comprehensively certified providers for audiovisual communications in Europe, with offices in France, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Turkey and Ukraine.

With the acquisition of MultiVision, DEKOM reinforces its leading position, and specifically strengthens its presence in the German market: not only the Düsseldorf MultiVision headquarters, but also the branch office in Stuttgart as well as the bases in Frankfurt and Munich are retained. Thus, both customer bases will benefit from extended on-site supply and increased service density.
