ARDIAN SELLS GANTNER TECHNOLOGIES TO SALTO SYSTEMS

GANTNER has doubled in revenues since Ardian’s investment began in 2016, creating a technology leader - The company looks forward to continue this growth path with SALTO Systems

Frankfurt am Main / Nueziders (Austria), 15th October 2020 – Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, has sold GANTNER Electronic Austria Holding GmbH (“GANTNER”). The company, which specializes in electronic access, ticketing and billing systems as well as smart locks for lockers, will be acquired by SALTO Systems (“SALTO”), a leading manufacturer of access control and electronic locking solutions. The parties have agreed not to disclose the details of the transaction.

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Nueziders, Austria, GANTNER is a leading European manufacturer of systems that enable automatic and contactless identification, based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.

GANTNER systems comprise integrated solutions for membership and visitor management, cashless payments, time recording in business organizations and security. Its customers range across various areas, including fitness clubs and medical fitness facilities), Attraction (water parks, spas, museums and other cultural facilities, ski storage, golf courses and amusement parks), Corporate (smart employee lockers for flexible work models, access control solutions for industrial companies, healthcare staff, public facilities and cashless payment systems for company cafeterias) and Education (universities, libraries and schools).

Since Ardian took a majority stake in GANTNER in 2016, the company has continued with its established strategy, providing customers with integrated solutions through targeted investments in research & development, as well as the expansion of the product range.

In June 2017, the product portfolio was expanded to include ticketing and management software for leisure facilities with the acquisition of Syx Automations. This was followed by the acquisition of Contidata in June 2020, with which GANTNER expanded its offering to include market-leading cashless payment systems for company cafeterias. As part of its international expansion, the company was able to increase its market share, particularly in the USA, the UK and the Benelux countries. As a result, since 2015 GANTNER has doubled in revenues and increased the number of employees from 200 to 450.

Headquartered in Spain, with more than 750 employees in offices spanning 32 countries, SALTO is a global leader in the development and manufacturing of world-class access control solutions, particularly in sectors where security is critical: education, healthcare, commercial, hospitality, retail, working spaces, residential and co-living, and Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA). The company revolutionized access control with a pioneering approach that featured the first stand-alone, battery-powered electronic lock; the SALTO Virtual Network (SVN) data-on-card technology; and the first wireless access control system that combined a stand-alone locking device with online, real-time capabilities — all without using wires or mechanical keys. The company has expanded its portfolio to include world-class software management, cloud solutions, and mobile applications. With the addition of the GANTNER portfolio, SALTO will now have the combined strength and joint capacity of one million access points annually.

Thanks to the new partnership with Salto, we can expand our product portfolio, take advantage of important synergies, better target our markets and address customer segments with precision.

The bird park Avifauna is an animal park in Alphen aan den Rijn (the Netherlands) which focuses mainly on birds.

Its name, Avifauna, refers to the part of the animal world (fauna) that consists of birds (Aves in Latin). Avifauna was the first and is, moreover, one of the most famous bird parks in the world.

The park has a lot of greenery and ponds, a restaurant, and a large playground with the highest traditional slide in the Netherlands. It is also possible to make a boat trip in the park. Avifauna used to be the property of the Van der Valk group but was turned into a foundation in the beginning of 2012. The Foundation Vogelpark Avifauna labours for bird and animal protection and has an ANBI status (Public Benefit Organisation).

Avifauna implemented GANTNER’s cash registers at the entrance, in the shop and indoor playground and also installed GANTNER’s access control system.

The Coventry Transport Museum selected GANTNER to set up the access control and ReCreateX POS systems.

16.07.2019

Coventry Transport Museum houses the largest publicly owned collection of British vehicles on the planet and tells the story of a city which changed the world through transport.

The Coventry Transport Museum introduced annual admission charges from the beginning of this summer and selected GANTNER to set up the access control and Recreatex POS systems.

Free access to the museum – which is home to the two fastest cars on the planet and many of the most memorable vehicles of the last 200 years – is being maintained to all residents in Coventry through the new GoCV cards that have been launched by Coventry City Council. GANTNER developed a bespoke integration with the GOCV platform.

The Coventry Transport Museum, which attracts over 360,000 visitors a year, will use part of the additional income to refresh and enhance the attraction to ensure it remains attractive for people across the country to visit year after year.

As a result of the changes, visitors can expect to see some fundamental differences in the museum’s current offer, including an exciting new programme of temporary and touring shows from across the globe; the first of these being a highly immersive exhibition to inspire visitors of all ages and abilities to move, play and have fun.
