Analytik Jena has sold all of its shares in previously wholly owned subsidiary AJ Blomesystem to the GUS Group.

The sale of the provider of laboratory software management and information systems (LIMS) means Analytik Jena will focus on its core business of lab analysis.

AJ Blomesystem, which will operate under the name of Blomesystem GmbH, will be run independently under the umbrella of the GUS Group.

“We are glad to have found a strategic investor for AJ Blomesystem with the GUS Group, which is pursuing the goal of developing the LIMS business in the coming years, of investing in the company and thus of offering our employees long-term prospects,” said Ulrich Krauss, CEO of Analytik Jena.

Krauss said the GUS Group will take on all employees and maintain locations in Jena and Wiehl.

The GUS Group provides corporate ERP for the process and logistics industries.

More than 200 employees work for the company worldwide. Of these, more than 160 are at GUS Deutschland in Cologne, Hamburg and Munich.

“By taking over the LIMS business, the GUS Group is expanding its offering of solutions both for the process industry as well as for analyzing and controlling institutes and is thus expanding its position as a process expert,” said Dirk Bingler, managing director of GUS Deutschland.
