Clifford Thames Ltd can announce, with immediate effect, an acquisition which drives their portfolio of solutions deeper across the automotive aftermarket globally.
Lead by Chief Financial Officer Richard West, Clifford Thames are now 100% shareholders of the German based company AC AutoConsult GmbH who have long standing contracts across the tyre industry, with players such as Goodyear, Dunlop and other OEMs. AutoConsult provides the market leading order platform, “Tire Engine” amongst other activities and services in tyre marketing.
After successfully collaborating with AC AutoConsult GmbH for some years, Clifford Thames identifies value and potential in both the AutoConsult brand and it’s unique product portfolio. This acquisition will not only allow for those products to be rolled out globally, but also offers possible synergies between the AC Autoconsult portfolio and Clifford Thames’ other products, thus widening the scope of our offer to customers.
Mr Ebner, former owner of AC AutoConsult, founded the organization 18 years ago and has established relationships with Ford, BMW, Mercedes, Toyota and Volvo as well as other vehicle manufacturers and OEMs.
Mr Ebner will work closely with Clifford Thames in a consultative capacity during the transition and handover phase.
