Pro4all and PMG announce their strategic combination, resulting in a leading European construction software group. PMG marks the first step in the international buy-and-build strategy of Pro4all since its management teamed up with the strategic software investor Main Capital Partners.
PMG, established in 2009 and headquartered in Munich, Germany, is a prominent software provider for the construction and real estate industry. Their main product PAVE is a SaaS collaboration-platform across the entire life cycle of a construction project. The core of PAVE is a comprehensive CDE (Common Data Environment), which is supplemented with modules such as workflows, project management, BIM, ESG and cost control. PMG supports more than 250 construction and real estate companies, mainly in the DACH region, who are currently working on more than 1000 projects with PAVE.
Building a leading European software group
Through the combination of Pro4all and PMG, the combined group will have a diversified customer base of more than 1,000 construction and real estate stakeholders. With strong market presence in the Benelux and DACH regions, the company has a solid customer base with an international perspective which can be leveraged to expand into other European countries. Additionally, the organizations foresee opportunities for a strong and unique combined product proposition which is well positioned to help the construction industry with the digitization process, as the sector is still lagging behind other sectors. The combined group currently employs 100 people in total.
Mike Riegler, Chief Executive Officer of PMG, is excited to join forces with the Pro4all team and is looking forward to the cooperation: “Pro4all is an excellent strategic and cultural match for PMG. We share similar cultures and ambitions to help construction and real estate stakeholders around the globe with our propositions.”
Dick van der Woude, Chief Executive Officer of Pro4all, foresees a fruitful strategic partnership with strong potential to offer a value-added proposition together with PMG across international markets: “While exploring the opportunity for cooperation, the response to our ideas from customers and partners were nothing but positive. That feedback, combined with our very similar cultures and go-to-market strategies and our ambition to expand internationally, strengthened our belief that joining forces will significantly accelerate the growth of both companies.”
Sjoerd Aarts, Partner at Main Capital Partners and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Pro4all, concludes: “We strongly believe in putting together driven and passionate entrepreneurs to accelerate innovation for the benefit of their clients. Over the past 20 years, this has been a key value creation driver in the successful organic and buy-and-build growth strategies we have executed together with our business partners. With PMG and Pro4all, we combine two organizations that are both renowned for their skills and expertise within their respective domains in the construction and real estate software market, resulting in a strong foundation for additional European expansion.”
