KGU Group becomes part of DOCUFY

DOCUFY GmbH from Bamberg has acquired the KGU Group from Flensburg, which specializes in product lifecycle management (PLM) and Teamcenter®, thereby expanding its range of services for the digitalization and automation of customer-specific processes and information management.

Bamberg, January 29, 2024. - With more than 25 years on the market, Bamberg-based DOCUFY GmbH is a strong partner for professional software solutions. With its product suite, it supports companies in optimizing processes related to the creation and use of product information (technical communication). The product suite includes an XML-based technical component content management system (CCMS), software for the legally compliant creation of risk assessments for CE marking, tools for improving CAx data quality or analyzing CAx data, a professional solution for electronic spare parts management and a platform for the company-wide provision of information, content and expertise. With the acquisition of the Flensburg-based KGU Group on January 12, 2024, DOCUFY is expanding its product suite to include a Teamcenter® PLM-based technical component content management system. At the same time, it is strengthening its expertise in PLM process and system consulting and the link to technical documentation.

Experts for PLM, Teamcenter® and technical documentation 

KGU supports manufacturing companies in the design and implementation of information and communication systems for the entire product life cycle using standard solution components. In the area of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), the company supports the design of PLM solutions and implements them on the basis of Teamcenter®, the industry-leading PLM platform from Siemens Digital Industries Software. With the TechPub Studio® product, KGU has an XML-based technical writing system (component content management) based on Teamcenter in its portfolio, which is integrated into the global Teamcenter portfolio under the name Teamcenter® Technical Publishing and is purchased as an OEM product from Siemens. As part of a holistic PLM strategy, KGU also advises technical writing on the design and implementation of digital solutions for the creation of sophisticated product documentation for innovative media using standards and standard software applications. KGU employs around 50 people, nine of whom work in the Serbian branch.

DOCUFY strengthens PLM and ERP integration with KGU

Nadine Prill, Managing Director of DOCUFY GmbH, says: “Since the company was founded, we have been dealing with information management in major corporations and medium-sized companies from the automotive industry, mechanical and plant engineering, medical technology and the software industry. We have been part of Elvaston Capital Management GmbH since 2021. Last year, with the purchase of door2solution GmbH, we expanded our suite to include a professional solution for electronic spare parts management. I am pleased that with the integration of KGU into DOCUFY, we can now also offer our customers new opportunities in the PLM context. KGU, on the other hand, can expand its range of products for its customer base to include products from the DOCUFY Suite. We greatly appreciate the know-how and experience of our new employees in Flensburg and Serbia and look forward to a boost in the further development of our products and services.”

Together into a promising future

Jan-Christian Hach and Falko Schmidt, Managing Directors of the KGU Group, add: “We will continue all previous KGU business activities under the umbrella of DOCUFY. The synergy effects from the joint market presence, the product additions and the expansion of expertise put us all in an excellent market position. Important milestones for us, such as the TechPub Studio® OEM contract with Siemens, will remain in place, as will our location in Flensburg and our subsidiary in Serbia. However, DOCUFY opens up new development prospects and allows us to look forward to a promising future together.”
