Red-on-line acquires the EHS software platform Gutwinski to broaden its European Footprint

Red-on-line, a leading EHS software and content provider announces today it has acquired Gutwinski Management GmbH. Headquartered in Vienna, Gutwinski is a leading EHS platform solution in German speaking countries.

Founded in 1999, Red-on-line has built an international business covering 165 jurisdictions. With more than 2,000 customers worldwide, Red-on-line offers its customers access to a multi-module SaaS software solution for risk management and regulatory compliance. Based in Vienna, Gutwinski, a major EHS content and software provider, enables Red-on-line to considerably strengthen its presence in Austria, Germany and German-speaking Switzerland.

As both a leading EHS regulatory content expert and advanced software solutions specialist, Red-on-line offers a wider range of services and tailored solutions to help  organisations reduce their legal compliance risks.

Commenting on the acquisition, Laurent Pitoun, Managing Director of Red-on-line, said:

“At Red-on-line, we have long respected Gutwinski’s legal expertise in EHS. Together with the talented team at Gutwinski, we will cement our position as a European leading EHS content and software provider. With a deeply complementary client portfolio product, the combined companies have an opportunity to make our products and services available to even more customers worldwide.”. 

Dr Thomas Gutwinski, Founder of Gutwinski added:

“We share the same entrepreneurial DNA as Red-on-line and have a common vision of how we aim to help our clients to manage their regulatory monitoring and compliance. We will benefit from the Red-on-Line team’s expertise and Infopro Digital’s technological capabilities. Today, we have a unique opportunity to reinforce our leading position in Austria and Germany and better serve our customers worldwide.”.

This is Red-on-line’s second acquisition of a major European EHS software company in 2021. This comes on the back of the successful acquisition last May of Pegasus Legal Register, the leader in the British and Irish markets

These two acquisitions, further cement Red-on-Line’s European leadership in the EHS monitoring and compliance market, as the only technological platform, content and services offering covering all jurisdictions on a global scale.
