Both companies are Swedish. SatPoint provides VSAT satellite communication services to merchant vessels, tankers, ferries and accommodation platforms, while Floorit provides managed IT services and co-location services with redundant server hosting in Gothenburg and Stockholm.
“Having a local presence in Gothenburg will help SatPoint to serve our customers in that region even better,” said Magnus Hedberg, SatPoint CEO.
Floorit will now become a subsidiary within the SatPoint group that also includes GroupTalk Sweden, which provides Push-to-Talk solutions.
Floorit will continue to operate under its own brand for customers on land, whereas the SatPoint brand will be used for maritime customers.
Jan Östlin, Floorit CEO, said: “We foresee significant growth of our IT services both within Sweden and internationally.”
