Allgeier IT Solutions - Revenues: €578m
2017 revenues soared by 15 per cent to €578m for this services and software house. Founded more than 40 years ago in Bremen. Allgeier IT Solutions is certainly one of the largest players in the German market. With around 7,000 staff, its parent company Allgeier SE claims to be one of the largest services outfits to German-speaking countries. Its four divisions have locations across nine European countries, as well as international outposts in Singapore, the US and Mexico.
The Bremen-based firm acquired the European business units of US reseller Ciber at the beginning of 2017, in a transaction worth $8.8m. The acquired business, which included operations across Germany, France and Denmark fell under Allgeier's enterprise service division, giving the firm a wider SAP footprint across the continent.
Ciber's remaining US operations went bust just months later, leading to consultancy powerhouse Capgemini placing a €50m bid for the beleaguered firm.
European office locations: Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Romania, UK
