Davide Gado, Managing Director of GK Europe, GmbH, says that the synergies between the two companies are very strong: “Choosing the right partner for the African market was a key strategic goal for General Kinematics. As soon as we met the IMS Management Team, it was clear that our decision had become much easier: we found a Company that shares the same values, ethics and work culture, associated to a deep knowledge of the market and the highest level of technical expertise. As our initial discussion progressed, we had the opportunity to meet all the exceptional individuals that work at IMS and directly experience their enthusiasm and drive. We are excited about our future together”.
