Germany is the hub of European expansion
With its smart measurement sensors of the Shelly product line, the company is on a Europe-wide expansion course. Shelly is particularly popular in Germany. Allterco already generates significant part of its sales here. The decision for a secondary listing in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange underlines the importance of Germany as a sales market for IoT and smart home solutions and forms the basis in the context of the global growth strategy.
To this end, the company has further expanded and professionalized its structures. In Wolfgang Kirsch – previously Chief Operating Officer at MediaMarktSaturn – Allterco has already been able to gain a proven expert from the consumer electronics sector. As CEO of the newly to be founded Allterco Europe GmbH, he will be responsible for the development of new markets as well as for the Munich site. Gregor Bieler will assume responsibility as Chairman of the company’s Advisory Board. As CEO Europe, Bieler is in charge of Aparavi’s fortunes and has also gained valuable experience in executive positions at Logitech, PayPal and Microsoft.
Dynamic growth in the smart home and IoT market
Wolfgang Kirsch, CEO of Allterco Europe GmbH (in process of being entered in the commercial register): “The listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is an important milestone for Allterco. The dual listing in the Prime Standard – the segment with the highest transparency – gives us access to additional investor groups, increases the company’s visibility on the capital markets and improves the liquidity of the Allterco share. In this way, we are building a strong starting position to achieve our ambitious goals and to continue on our strategic path towards profitable and sustainable growth. With our products, we address a dynamically growing market for smart home and IoT solutions and at the same time make an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. Therefore, in the next step, we want to establish a global marketing and sales structure that is in no way inferior to the high quality of our technical solutions. We see this as the prerequisite for exploiting our full market potential and establishing Shelly as one of the leading smart home brands.”
Shelly is already one of the fastest growing European smart home brands for home automation. The recipe for success is a product strategy that is closely oriented to the needs of its own users. A unique community of fans and supporters has grown up around the brand, with more than 35,000 active members in the support forums in Germany alone. Shelly products work with all common platforms from manufacturers such as Google, Apple or Amazon.
“Our components are freely programmable. We also do not force our users into the cloud or to purchase a specific control system. Instead, we develop products that are as flexible and open-system as possible – this sets us apart from other smart home providers,” explains Dimitar Dimitrov, Group CEO and Head of Development at Allterco. “We follow the credo that our products should serve people instead of adding even more complexity to everyday life. With the secondary listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, we now want to underline our ambitions in Europe and create the best conditions for our further expansion. Due to our local strength and the already existing support in the German market, we have consciously decided to go to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.”
