Continues global expansion across Latin America
Buenos Aires, 11 March 2019 – Evernex, the global third-party maintenance provider for datacenter hardware & critical IT assets, including servers, storage and network equipment, has agreed to acquire Roer, the premier third-party maintenance services provider in Argentina.
Evernex already has a substantial presence and commitment to Latin America. The group operates through subsidiaries in Brazil, Mexico and Chile. Through its new investment in Roer, Evernex will become the undisputed leader in the Latin American market with a presence in 7 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chili, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay), close to 30,000 assets under management, a unique multi-country offering, over 120 employees in its 11 offices, 31 forward stock locations and a very strong service delivery and logistic platform.
Roer is a leader in the Argentinan third party maintenance services market. The company also has subsidiaries in Chile, Uruguay, Peru and Colombia. Roer provides maintenance services for datacenter hardware & critical IT equipment, offering tailored solutions to customers in Latin America.
Mickael Deschaseaux, Regional Manager at Evernex, said: “I’m proud to be part of this second acquisition in Latin America which will also strengthen our local team. Combining our regional business with Roer will enable Evernex to become the leading third-party maintenance services player across Latin America, with a unique multi-country customer offer.”
Stanislas Pilot, Chief Executive Officer at Evernex, said: “Roer has demonstrated robust growth and built a strong brand both in Argentina and across Latin America. We are delighted that they have agreed to combine resources with Evernex, to create an even stronger business, to better serve more customers across Latin America and globally. I look forward to working with Roer’s team as we build our combined, powerful platform to serve our customers’ growing demand for maintenance services.”
Cyril Bourdarot, Director at The Carlyle Group, added: “Roer is the fifth acquisition completed globally by Evernex since 2016. This demonstrates the company’s ability to act as a consolidation platform across a fragmented industry landscape. Roer is also a perfect fit for Evernex’s ambitions in the region which is characterized by an attractive growing market for third-party IT maintenance.”
Vladimir Lasocki, Managing Director and co-Head of the Carlyle Europe Technology Partners team at The Carlyle Group, concluded: “Evernex has become a recognized global force in third-party maintenance with a highly differentiated proposition: its global reach is unique; the company has a flexible customer engagement model that allows Evernex to adapt to different market structures and needs. We have invested significantly to upgrade systems and tools to support Evernex’s organic growth and have refinanced the business last year to support the group’s acquisition strategy. We believe Evernex is well positioned to further accelerate its global expansion.”
