The company employs more than 50 people at its Aarhus location, all of whom will be integrated intoby Unzer following conclusion of the acquisition. QuickPay is a payment service provider that was also founded in Aarhus back in 2004. The company processes transactions for online shops and offers all popular payment types in Europe. The two companies have been cooperating with one another since 2014. Dr. Axel Rebien, Co-CEO at Unzer, comments: "We are delighted to enter into a partnership with both Clearhaus and QuickPay. The two companies not only boast a great deal of expertise and highly developed technology, they also have well trained teams with excellent knowledge and experience of the payment sector. Although competition in the race for the two companies was fierce, Unzer was ultimately able to highlight the best development opportunities. For us, this represents a great confirmation of our overall strategy." "We were looking for a buyer who could show us an interesting proposition with a scalable business model. This is precisely what Unzer did. We have enjoyed fantastic growth over the last few years and are keen to pursue this further. I feel both delighted and honoured to be part of such an ambitious European player together with our team," comments Claus Methmann Christensen, CEO at Clearhaus. The acquiring license that Clearhaus brings to the table will enable Unzer to both cover and monitor the entire added value chain of payment.
