Limerick, Ireland / Berlin, Germany – May 12, 2022 – AMCS, a leading global supplier of integrated cloud-based software and vehicle technology for the environmental, utilities, waste, recycling, and resource industries, announced today that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Quentic, one of the leading solution providers of Software as a Service for EHSQ and ESG management, for an undisclosed amount.

AMCS and Quentic are now positioned to provide more advanced digital solutions to a wider industry, which will enrich their customers’ operations and impact the environment for a healthier, cleaner, and more sustainable world.
Combining forces is an important step for both companies as they leverage the expertise from each organization and jointly lead the way for added competence in the market.
