Transaction

On his way to retirement, the leading founder is willing to hand over its company. Created in the 90s, he is the only shareholder with 100% of COROBOR SYSTEMS’s stake.

 

The transaction occurred in September 2014 and allowed CAMPBELL SCIENTIFIC to strengthen its position on the French market and gain clients from 130 countries. It was the perfect match for COROBOR SYSTEMS to diversify and expand its international development. This operation moves the software culture and the hardware one closer. New projects will now include data collection from meteorological software linked to sophisticated sensors.
