3 years ago, Impaq joined the international Gfi Group, which now employs 19,000 IT professionals in 20 countries. This year Impaq has changed its name to Gfi Poland. As the company’s representatives say, it is another step after the merger with an international company emphasizing the synergy of cooperation in many global markets.
Many years ago, the Gfi Group began its expansion in the world by acquiring Impaq, which today, as Gfi East, is responsible for the development of the Group’s business in our European region.
Rebranding and expansion in Central and Eastern Europe
“For us, this year is, on the one hand, a rebranding process and a change of name from Impaq to Gfi Poland, and on the other hand, an obvious development of business in our region of Europe. Thanks to joining the Gfi Group, we are able to implement projects globally. Gfi Group – outside Europe has also service centers in Asia, Africa and North and South America. Since the merger with the Gfi Group, the number of our employees has doubled to almost 900 people” – says Tomasz Mordel, Sales Director at Gfi Poland (formerly Impaq).
“The Gfi Group also thinks about growth through mergers and acquisitions. We are responsible for the implementation of this strategy in the East, which includes Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Austria and the United Kingdom. At the end of 2018, we acquired a company with several hundred members and in Romania – Vauban – currently Vauban Gfi. A very large group of Gfi’s global customers operates in this market, thanks to which – through the acquisition of Vauban Gfi – we are able to offer more tailored and comprehensive IT services.
At the same time, this investment also gives us access to a very attractive market of IT employees. Many IT specialists from Romania already support our project teams today” – he adds.
