Optidev acquires eConnectivity with clients including Volvo Cars, Polestar, and SKF

“The acquisition of eConnectivity is part of our and our owner Techstep’s strengthening of our expertise and capacity to become a leader in Managed Mobility Services in the Nordic region,” says Fredrik Logenius, CEO of Optidev.

The company eConnectivity was founded three years ago by Claes Widestadh, Christoffer Shokofan Taudien, and Stayhard founder Joakim Naumburg. The company specialises in strategic services relating to mobility and digitalisation, as well as integrated app solutions. With its solutions for major companies including SKF, Volvo Cars, and Polestar, this is a key acquisition for Optidev’s and Techstep’s continued growth.

“Together with Techstep, we are strengthening our range of joint MMS solutions. We really value eConnectivity’s expertise in mobility transformation and best practice, says Logenius.

eConnectivity also sees great potential.

“When we started eConnectivity three years ago, we saw a gap in the market for helping companies realise the business value of mobile services and solutions. Together, we’re on course to become the leading Nordic supplier in digitalisation with Managed Mobility Services. It’s incredibly energising to be recognised for how far we’ve come, and we’re now ready for the next step,” says Widestadh of eConnectivity.

This deal is also in line with Techstep’s long-term strategy.

“The acquisition is in line with Techstep’s growth strategy, which is driven by organic growth and acquisitions,” says Jens Haviken, CEO of Techstep.
