Canada's Syntax expands Europe footprint with Linke acquisition

Canadian cloud and ERP service provider Syntax has expanded its presence in the European market with the acquisition of Spain's Linke, a specialist in SAP on Amazon Web Services solutions.

Linke is headquartered in Barcelona and is active in the Iberian, French and Nordic markets. Syntax is headquartered in Montreal and is a portfolio company of Canadian private equity firm Novacap - it has four offices in Germany and one in Slovakia.

“With this acquisition we combine our own capabilities with those of Linke, allowing us to assist even more companies in the broader EMEA market on their journeys to the cloud,” said Syntax.

Founded in 2010, Linke was one of the first AWS Partner Network (APN) companies to achieve Premier Consulting Partner status and became a SAP Gold Partner in 2020.

Christian Primeau, global CEO of Syntax, said: “Linke's unmatched expertise in deploying, migrating, operating and automating enterprise applications on AWS is well-known. This transaction represents an opportunity for Syntax to further Linke's impressive capabilities and help even more customers reach their cloud goals.”

Syntax says it will expand Linke's AWS professional services practice into the DACH region and the Americas.

“Over the past ten years we have established Linke as a leader in Europe for SAP on AWS environments, developing projects in 17 countries,” said Chabier Sanvicente, Linke co-founder and CEO.

“Joining our expertise with Syntax will allow us to grow faster, accelerate our international expansion, improve the development and capacity for our solutions and expand our value proposition.”
