Hamburg, 25 January 2022.

The international technology group Körber strengthens its Business Area Digital by acquiring a majority stake in DAIN Studios. The Finnish-German data and AI consultancy empowers businesses from their very first data journey to excelling at artificial intelligence solutions. The acquisition was completed effective 27 December 2021.

The portfolio of DAIN Studios, established in 2016 with offices in Berlin, Helsinki and Munich, is designed to answer the fundamental challenges companies are facing during their transformation to a data-driven organization. Based on years of experience and an international team of experts, the company accompanies their customers throughout the whole journey: from strategy to implementation, from optimizing operations to creating new growth. In addition to numerous customer projects, the recognition by Technology Industries of Finland as “one of the five best AI consultancies” in Finland for four consecutive times confirms the competence of DAIN Studios. DAIN Studios will continue to operate independently as a brand. In addition to expanding its range of products and services, however, the company will join forces with Körber to focus more closely on the manufacturing industry and logistics.

“’AI first’ is a key strategic initiative for Körber. With DAIN Studios, we strengthen our position globally as innovation leader in the future-oriented field of AI”, says Dr. Christian Schlögel, Chief Digital Officer and Member of the Körber Group Executive Board. “With the consulting expertise of DAIN Studios, we expand our possibilities to leverage the power of AI to create a visible business value on the side of the customer.”

“Technology is not the only aspect that makes the use of AI successful in the production environment. Due to the experience and clear consulting approach across all levels of the business, DAIN Studios is the perfect fit for us,” adds Daniel Szabo, CEO of the Körber Business Area Digital. “By adding DAIN Studios, we are now even better positioned to address the topic of AI in the production and logistics environment. We look forward to working with DAIN Studios’ highly skilled team of experts.”

"Over the past five years, DAIN Studios has successfully positioned itself in the market for smart data and AI strategies in the DACH region and Finland. Thanks to Körber, we can now further expand our strategic relevance in our home markets and even go more international. Körber's many years of experience and global positioning, as well as its entrepreneurial spirit, enable new opportunities for DAIN Studios. Artificial intelligence is the future and we look forward to driving the topic together with the team at Körber," says Dirk Hofmann, Co-Founder and CEO of DAIN Studios Germany.
