The Group passes the symbolic threshold of 2,000 employees and has a combined turnover of more than 270 million euros for the year 2019.

The intention for a merger between Acolad and Amplexor was announced September 20, 2020. Today, the merger was made official, and the industry can expect Acolad and Amplexor to reinforce their presence as well as improve their technological and commercial service offering to create a leading global language service provider. The Group has agreed not to disclose the financial details of the transaction.
