AUTOCONT signs a contract with pan-European institutions worth tens of millions of Euros

SWITZERLAND, June 17, 2021 / -- AUTOCONT has signed one of the biggest existing IT contracts in server technology in Europe. In the next 4 years, it will supply technology and consultancy services for the data centres of over fifty pan-European institutions, such as the European Parliament, EUROPOL, FRONTEX, European Medicines Agency, European Central Bank and the Secretariat of the European Commission. The contract is worth many tens of millions of Euros.

AUTOCONT will supply HPE server technology with Intel and AMD CPUs, hyperconverged infrastructure Nutanix, accessories, warranty services, installation, maintenance, and consultancy services virtually in all EU Member States. The Directorate-General for Informatics of the European Commission (DIGIT) has evaluated AUTOCONT’s bid under the sub-tender CRO12 as the best value for money. Having previously obtained a series of smaller contracts, AUTOCONT has now managed to benefit considerably from the framework contract DI/07754, which it obtained three years ago, as one of five European IT companies. Jaromír Babinec, statutory head of AUTOCONT B.V. Brussels and Director of Mergers and Acquisitions for the ARICOMA Group, said: “It’s a great commercial achievement for us, as well as a major strategic step forward.” He claims the contract is the first major achievement of the newly emerging business unit AUTOCONT INTERNATIONAL, composed of AUTOCONT teams in Brno and Brussels. This great success of AUTOCONT in Brussels is in line with the strategy of the ARICOMA Group, established as the IT pillar of KKCG three years ago. AUTOCONT INTERNATIONAL will first focus on the new delivery of infrastructure and related services for the European Commission, and for other international institutions. In the long term, projects implemented successfully in these institutions should become a springboard for conquering other markets in Benelux countries and prospectively also in Germany. AUTOCONT INTERNATIONAL is also planned to provide sales/pre-sales/project management activities for other members of the ARICOMA Group (see below) in those markets.

“The AUTOCONT INTERNATIONAL business unit uses the resources of the ARICOMA Group and a newly built international team. Jointly with other Group companies, it will manage a large portion of ARICOMA’s service portfolio,” added Milan Sameš, Group CEO of ARICOMA Group. He believes the company will do everything possible to successfully break into the demanding and, to some degree, impenetrable IT markets in Western Europe and the United States. In order to achieve this, AUTOCONT’s sales and pre-sales team will move to these respective countries.
