Luxembourg-based SkyCom Sàrl and Denmark's r2pTracking ApS have announced their decision to merge to create a new pan-European company in the telematics sector: EcoMobility Group.

Founded by Claude Lenert in 1994 in Niederdonven, SkyCom was one of the first telematics companies in Europe. Over the years, the firm has evolved but continues to offer sustainable and qualitative fleet management services. SkyCom currently employs more than 35 people and supports more than 1,400 customers in Luxembourg and in neighbouring countries.

"As the founder of SkyCom, I had to start thinking about the future of the company, our employees, our customers and my personal future. With Bernd Junk, SkyCom contributor for over 20 years and CEO since 2019, and Bjarne Nielsen, a historic Danish business partner, we envisioned a common future. We identified Alder, a Stockholm-based Nordic investment fund with a mission and strong track record in developing sustainable technology companies, to sponsor our merger. I am happy to participate in this new adventure as a co-shareholder and I look forward to the future achievements of the group
," said Claude Lenert, founder of SkyCom.

For its part, r2pTracking was established in 1997 and has since grown to become one of the leading telematics solution providers for road vehicles in Denmark.

"I am delighted to continue and enrich the partnership initiated with SkyCom 25 years ago, within the EcoMobility group. We see great opportunities for synergies by combining our strengths and perfecting our range of products and services for our 8,000 joint customers," added Bjarne Nielsen, CEO of r2pTracking.

EcoMobility Group is a provider of telematics and SaaS solutions that aims to enable companies to exploit their vehicles and resources in a more sustainable and cost-effective way. The group is the result of the merger of SkyCom in Luxembourg and r2pTracking in Denmark, with approximately 70 employees and 8,000 combined customers.
