426 Germany

Hello, 426 Deutschland!

426 takes over Hamburg based IT company

The North German system house for e-commerce becomes part of 426. This strategic decision not only strengthens our presence on the German market, but also consolidates our position as one of the leading companies in the field of B2B and B2C e-commerce development.

Proclane Commerce was founded in Hamburg in 2013. With a team of twenty experts based in Hamburg and Halle (Saale), Proclane Commerce offers customizable complete solutions for online stores with a comprehensive SAP connection. Proclane Commerce is characterized by extensive expertise and many years of experience in the implementation of digital projects in the B2B sector, especially in mechanical engineering, industry and trade. The company's wide-ranging expertise also extends to interface programming. Tailor-made solutions enable the efficient integration of digital systems from a wide range of industries.

In order to position ourselves at the forefront of technology in the long term and offer a customer-oriented company structure for a variety of digital challenges, we set out in search of a strong partner: "We saw Proclane Commerce as an opportunity to improve our existing products and further expand various services. We also expect the new sales structure to offer us great growth potential - without losing our own identity," says Hannes Vaia. In addition to being Germany's second largest city, Hamburg is above all a dynamic business location with access to a broad talent pool in a strategically favorable location.

"E-commerce will become an even greater focus in the future. In addition to the rapidly growing B2B business, the industry also benefits from the lean processes of such sales portals. This acquisition brings a lot of experience and expertise to our team, which can give our existing and new customers a decisive competitive advantage," Daniel Hanspeter, CTO of 426, is convinced. In addition, the newly acquired company structure with over 50 employees at 4 locations enables the company to provide even more comprehensive support to existing and new customers. With the acquisition of Proclane Commerce, 426 is thus consistently adhering to its growth strategy.

Proclane Commerce becomes 426 Germany

"A fundamental step ist the name change of Proclane Commerce to '426 Germany'. With the company name, we also want to implement our values: a familiar corporate culture based on mutual appreciation, professional customer proximity and absolute transparency are essential for 426," Vaia continues. 

As an e-commerce expert, 426 focuses on the digitalization of business models in the B2C and B2B retail environment. Specialized developers support customers from numerous industries on a national and international level and guarantee comprehensive and complete support. The technological focus is on the platform technologies of Shopware and OXID as well as the implementation of Akeneo and Pimcore as PIM systems.
