Sogelink acquires Geopixel, a leading topographic software company, with the support of Keensight Capital
Sogelink, a leading European provider of software solutions for infrastructure, construction, and property management professionals, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Geopixel, a leading topographic software provider for the construction industry.
With its fourth acquisition in less than two years, Sogelink continues to strengthen its offering across the entire construction technology value chain. Supported by Keensight Capital, one of the leading private equity funds dedicated to pan-European Growth Buyout  investments, Sogelink aims to accelerate its development in the field of topographic surveys and consolidate its position as a leader in the space.
In recent years, the field of topography has continued to evolve, requiring professionals in the sector to address key pain points: taking more accurate measurements in ever shorter timeframes, working in varied and increasingly complex environments, and mastering constantly evolving technologies (UAVs, photogrammetry, etc.). Sogelink, whose mission is to simplify construction for everyone throughout the world, intends to draw on Geopixel’s expertise and know-how to accelerate its development and strengthen its cutting-edge offering.
Geopixel offers a suite of solutions dedicated to topography. Its offering, specially designed for land surveying companies, will naturally complement Sogelink’s value proposition in this segment. Through this partnership, Geopixel will also benefit from Sogelink’s advanced cloud technologies and international reach.
Geopixel’s employees will join Sogelink’s teams and will strengthen the group’s geographical coverage with this new facility in the Toulon region.
Fatima Berral, CEO of Sogelink, commented: “The acquisition of Geopixel is perfectly aligned with our desire to strengthen our presence in the land surveying sector. Our solutions are very complementary. We look forward to building on the strong base established by Geopixel’s founders, Gérard and Pascale Costamagna, and integrating new experts into our teams.”
Jean-Michel Beghin, Managing Partner at Keensight Capital, added: “We are delighted to support this latest acquisition by Sogelink, which is perfectly in line with the company’s strategy of developing its offering across the entire construction technology value chain. The integration of Geopixel will strengthen Sogelink’s position as a key player in the field of surveying and further accelerate its development.”
Gérard Costamagna, CEO and founder of Geopixel, concluded: “For 30 years, we have been offering the construction industry and public sector a cutting-edge solution, which over time has adapted to the challenges of our ecosystem and the new needs of our customers. We were keen to leave Geopixel in the hands of a company that shares our expertise and values. Sogelink was an obvious choice for us. Thanks to its experience and knowledge of the business, Sogelink will be able to continue to develop this offering.”
