Flex IT has acquired the German demo specialist MKCL GmbH

Flex ITone of Europe’s leading specialists in IT lifecycle management, announces today that the company has acquired the German demo specialist MKCL.

This is done with a view to expanding the company’s services and portfolio within demo services and circular IT.

The acquisition of MKCL is also part of FLEX IT’s mission to lead the transition to a fully circular European market for IT hardware. The acquisition also supports the company’s strategy to expand its services to both IT salespeople and suppliers.

As the lifespan of IT hardware is gradually reduced to between three and five years, the annual IT waste mountain continues to accumulate. According to Flex IT, the key to extending this service life significantly is to reduce the environmental impact.

“With the acquisition of MKCL, Flex IT is taking another big step forward in its position as a circular service provider for suppliers – in particular Lenovo due to an excellent relationship between Lenovo and MKCL. In addition, it will enable Flex IT to further help companies achieve their sustainability goals by offering circular Lenovo products to the European market. The need for sustainable computers is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. Flex IT wants to support companies in this transformation, and the acquisition of MKCL helps to make this ambition a reality, ”says Leon Timmermans, Director of Flex IT

The acquisition enables us to strengthen our circular leadership and to expand this focus on the European market, and as a result accelerate the process around circular IT in Europe, ”adds Leon Timmermans.

“We expect to work in great synergy with the MKCL team, as we share the same values ​​and have the same view on the development of the circular market. Michael Frautz and I have built a really good relationship over the past year.

In addition to logistics, production and trading of IT hardware, the company’s portfolio includes demo pool management and other IT hardware services for suppliers.

“I am convinced that Flex IT’s acquisition of MKCL will enable the MKCL organization to grow to its full potential. Flex IT is one of the largest circular IT organizations in the world, and I am proud that they have chosen MKCL to be part of their long-term strategy, ”says Michael Frautz.
