MONTREAL — Syntax, a multi-cloud and multi-ERP managed cloud provider for mission-critical applications, expanded its presence through the acquisition of Linke, a provider of SAP on Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions in the Iberian, French, and Nordic markets. Syntax currently provides cloud solutions and services to customers in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, construction, transportation, utilities and more. With this acquisition, Syntax combines its own capabilities with those of Linke, allowing it to assist even more companies in the broader EMEA market on their journeys to the Cloud. Syntax is a portfolio company of Novacap, a Montreal-based private equity firm.

“Syntax is known for its commitment to innovation, our people and our customers. As we looked for a company with a similar mindset that could help us expand our presence in Europe, we could not have found a better company than Linke,” said Christian Primeau, Global CEO of Syntax.

Syntax will aim at expanding Linke’s AWS Professional Services practice by growing its European Advisory and Migration offering in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and in the Americas. Additionally, Syntax customers will hope to benefit from the addition of Linke’s solutions and technologies, including AWS Connector for SAP, Emory Cloud Backup for SAP HANA and SAP Automation Platform.

“Over the past 10 years, we have established Linke as a leader in Europe for SAP on AWS environments, developing projects in 17 countries,” said Chabier Sanvicente, Linke co-founder and CEO. “Joining our expertise with Syntax will allow us to grow faster, accelerate our international expansion, improve the development and capacity for our solutions and expand our value proposition so our clients can transform and innovate their business.”
