Berg Software Timisoara joins AROBS Group
AROBS Transilvania Software announces the acquisition of Berg Software, a local custom software development and outsourcing company, with offices in Timisoara, Lugoj, and Oradea. Following the completion of the transaction, the AROBS Group will consolidate its presence in the Western part of Romania and intends to increase its presence in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. To carry out this transaction, AROBS will use part of the capital raised from the BVB investors during the private placement for its shares, which took place in October this year, as well as bank financing.
„Our strategy is to continue expansion both nationally and internationally by acquiring IT companies with which we can develop synergies in software expertise, particularly on enterprise solutions. Berg Software is an important local player present in Timisoara, Oradea and Lugoj. The transaction extends our geographical presence by opening another bridgehead in Western Romania and yet another one, to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland markets, where Berg is extremely well-positioned and where we want to increase AROBS presence. Berg will maintain its operational independence, another important aspect of AROBS’s M&A strategy. We want to have in the AROBS Group, companies like Berg, where management is participatory and collaborative, with clear performance objectives. We are thrilled to include Berg Software in the Group and welcome the new colleagues to our team,” stated Voicu Oprean, founder and CEO of AROBS.
Berg Software was founded in 1991 under the name Berg Computers, and its main activity was providing PC equipment. In 1994, the company entered the software development services market and in 1998 it launched the first product for the Romanian market, an ERP solution. In 2020, Berg Software recorded a turnover of 13 million lei and a net profit of 1.8 million lei from the software development activity in the Enterprise area. Over the past 30 years, the company has completed over 2,700 projects for over 750 local and international clients. Berg is owned by the Berg family, with Rodica Berg also being the company’s CEO. The company will continue to be managed by Rodica Berg together with the other members of the management team.
„We are honored to join the AROBS family, a successful Romanian business with which we share the same values and vision. Together we will be stronger, and both our clients and colleagues will benefit from the synergies created and the added value of this alliance that will take Berg to a new stage of development. We launch this partnership in a crucial moment of the evolution of the multinational from Cluj, and we are happy to contribute to the building of AROBS team and Voicu Oprean’s vision,” stated Rodica Berg, founder & CEO of Berg Software.
On behalf of AROBS, the transaction was facilitated by Serban Roman, Smart Resources, M&A advisor while Lion Link Advisory and Colman Tax performed financial and tax due diligence. PwC assisted Berg in the financial and fiscal due diligence process. For this transaction, the law firm Wolf Theiss advised AROBS and RTPR assisted Berg Software.
AROBS is currently in an advanced stage of negotiations to acquire several companies operating in software services or owning and operating solutions for business optimization and car fleet management products. In October 2021, AROBS announced the successful closing of the largest private placement in the history of the AeRO market, raising 74.2 million lei from investors. The company’s shares will float on the Bucharest Stock Exchange under the AROBS ticker before the yearend.

Berg Software: since 1991 ＿
The world wide web was born August 1991, pretty much at the same time as AMD’s AM386, Intel’s 486SX, Microsoft’s Visual Basic, Python, HTTP 0.9 and Fortran 90. The same year, Steffi Graf won Wimbledon and Terminator got back (way too early) to save the world. Then on November 13th, Berg Software kicked in.
Despite 2000s challenges (Y2K & dot-com bubble burst, anyone?) Berg Software made the best out of it. We surfed and expanded upon an unprecedented wave of technological advancements, to open our first offices outside the headquarters in 2005 (Oradea, RO) and 2006 (Lugoj, RO). Diversifying the expertise into multiple technologies, industries and geographies is what fuelled Berg Software’s continuous growth.
That’s a lot of recent-ancient history, to only say:
Resilience & Agility
We are resilient
Once planning is done, we are laser-focused on the end goal and relentless to execute. Berg Software covers multiple expertise fields that are mutually supportive in the long run. When times are rough, we buckle-up and ship through, always supportive of our partners. When times are good, we celebrate their success and keep them empowered.
We are agile
At Berg Software, we think on our feet and are quick to adapt. We strongly believe that human interaction and collaboration are very important ingredients to software development. We favour frequent deliveries in small batches, that encourage client agility, too. The bottom line: working software is the measure of our success. [See more]
Technical & Personal
We have the hard skills
Good work ethic and excellent tech skills empower Berg Software’s professional teams to provide the best software solutions to happy clients. We cover multiple technologies (beyond just web and cloud) for several industries (manufacturing, retail, IT, data storage etc.). Whether you are looking to expand your team or to develop a software product from ground up, we are it. [See more]
…And the soft skills
Family, friends and fun are a major part of our life-work balance. We are a Romanian-based company with German heritage, that shares European values (freedom, equality, responsibility) and culture (languages, arts, openness). The bottom line: work is as enjoyable as the people you work with.
We turn ideas into software ＿
Morning’s coffee fumes and afternoon’s gym fury: we need them both to power through the day. And night. And all the ups and downs and sprints and marathons we run along the way.
We feed on daydreaming, dancing, reading, chatting, cat patting, brainstorming, pizza-ing, googling, doodling. That’s how our best ideas show up, before we turn them into solid software building blocks.
Finally. Sit down, code on. Stand up, lift the desk, keep coding. Slouch on the couch or out in the garden, then code some more. Put the hours in. And the days. Do the work to *make it* work.
