Data solutions firm HaynesPro – a division of Haynes Publishing Group P.L.C, has announced the acquisition of Carweb’s e3 Technical business in order to strengthen its online presence. Full terms of the deal are yet to be confirmed.
The deal will see HaynesPro take control of the latter’s direct and indirect business which includes Repair and Maintenance Information (RMI), Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) look-up software as well as its associated helpdesks and a number of Carweb’s employees. All customer contracts associated with the e3 Technical brand will also be transferred to the new owner.
“This acquisition is an important milestone in our European growth strategy and significantly enhances HaynesPro’s data offering”, said HaynesPro MD Peter van der Galiën, “Having worked with the E3 Technical team for many years, we know that we are bringing on board the best talent and capabilities in the industry.”
Darryl Watts, former e3 Technical Sales Director and new HaynesPro UK Managing Director, commented. “The acquisition reflects our strong commitment to providing UK partners and customers with the best possible technical data solutions. It also guarantees the continuity of existing services, without any interruptions during the hand-over, and ensures the development of future products to meet customer and partner needs.”
