Analytik Jena sells AJ Blomesystem

Analytik Jena has announced that it is selling all of its shares in AJ Blomesystem to the GUS Group with the transaction effective as of July 1st. The sale of the previously wholly owned subsidiary and provider of comprehensive laboratory software management and information systems (LIMS) results from the strategic orientation of Analytik Jena, which will focus on its core business of lab analysis in the future.

‘We are glad to have found a strategic investor for AJ Blomesystem with the GUS Group, which is pursuing the goal of developing the LIMS business in the coming years, of investing in the company and thus of offering our employees long-term prospects,’ says Ulrich Krauss, CEO of Analytik Jena AG.

AJ Blomesystem will operate under the new name of Blomesystem as of July 1, 2017, will be run independently under the umbrella of the GUS Group in the future. Krauss stresses that what is key here is that the GUS Group will take on all of the employees and maintain the locations in Jena and Wiehl.

The GUS Group provides corporate ERP solutions for the process and logistics industries. Since its founding in 1980, the Group has been pursuing a consistent process orientation along the entire supply chain. More than 200 employees work for the company around the globe. Of these, more than 160 work at GUS Deutschland GmbH locations in Cologne, Hamburg and Munich. The GUS Group is represented as a process specialist in all of Central Europe through companies in Switzerland and Denmark.

‘By taking over the LIMS business, the GUS Group is expanding its offering of solutions both for the process industry as well as for analysing and controlling institutes and is thus expanding its position as a process expert,’ says Dirk Bingler, Managing director of GUS Deutschland.
