As a Digital Transformation Partner, we accompany companies into the digital future. Our range of IT solutions
includes consulting, implementation, services and the operation of IT systems. Our Customers benefit from
our extensive expertise and our innovative portfolio that covers the IT requirements necessary for a successful
digital transformation.

Worldwide, we employ over 3,000 employees and have offices in Germany, Austria, Belgium, The UK and The

company’s headquarters is in Munich.

In 2018, the CANCOM Group acquired UK businesses Ocean Intelligent Communication and OCSL. This
formed CANCOM Group’s UK hub, and CANCOM UK was born. A year later, in 2019, Novosco was acquired,
along with its offices present throughout Ireland (Ireland and Northern Ireland). In January 2021, CANCOM
UK&I was formed after three acquisitions completed in both the UK and Ireland by the CANCOM Group.
