EurotaxGlass’s International claims to have further consolidated its position as Europe’s leading provider of automotive data and solutions through the acquisition of Inter-Global AB of Sweden.

Clas Ebler, who founded Inter-Global in 1993, will remain as general manager of the company – which will now be known as Inter-Global ETG AB – supported by his current team.

This development comes as Inter-Global prepares to launch a range of new products for the Swedish market, including online vehicle valuation and residual value forecasting tools.

Starting with the successful CarToMarket studies from EurotaxGlass’s market intelligence unit (EGMIU), new offerings from EurotaxGlass’s will systematically be added to the Inter-Global product line-up, to create a comprehensive portfolio of specialised solutions, the companies said.

Kevin Gaskell, EurotaxGlass’s group CEO, said, “We are delighted to integrate the Inter-Global brand and its team into our group as we continue to expand throughout Europe. We are already well represented in the Nordic countries through our Norwegian operation, and we can now further strengthen our presence in this important region.

“Our international customer base includes vehicle manufacturers and leasing companies, all of whom will be able to access valuation information and market intelligence generated by Sweden’s leading provider of automotive data.”

Clas Ebler of Inter-Global added: “We were approached by several potential partners and chose to join EurotaxGlass’s, the undisputed leader in the automotive data sector across Europe.

“This is a very exciting time for Inter-Global as we are launching several key new products of our own this year.”
