Iver acquires IT Gården

4 July 2019 / Press release

Iver has acquired the Landskrona-based IT company, IT Gården, as part of its efforts to strengthen its position in the Swedish IT operations and outsourcing market. IT Gården, which was founded in 1999, and currently has 100 employees located in Landskrona, Malmö, Helsingborg and Gothenburg, posted a turnover of SEK 222 million in 2018. The acquisition will boost Iver’s physical presence in southern Sweden, expand the customer base, and increase business volumes. Post-acquisition, the Iver Group will have around 1,000 employees.

IT Gården provides IT operations and IT environment services for customers in a variety of sectors, including banking, e-commerce, media, retail, and the manufacturing industry.

“IT Gården has the same strong customer focus as Iver, with core values based on closeness to the customer, committed and engaged employees, and strong expertise in the field of IT operations solutions. The acquisition strengthens Iver’s position in southern Sweden – a region which Iver believes is poised to show strong development and growth – and is very much in line with our ambitions for Iver’s ongoing development. We would like to welcome IT Gården’s customers and employees to the fold and look forward to them becoming part of our progress towards becoming a leading Nordic IT services company,” says Åsa Arvidsson, CEO of Iver.

“IT Gården is very much looking forward to becoming part of Sweden’s leading IT operations company, Iver. The acquisition will offer exciting, new career opportunities for our staff, whilst our customers will gain access to a wider range of services, together with local expertise and support in much of Sweden and Norway and, in the longer term, throughout the Nordic region,” says Åge Lønning, CEO of IT Gården.
