Dancik International is acquired by Kerridge Commercial Systems

Mitch Dancik, founder and Chairman of Dancik International, announced today that “Dancik is now part of Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS), a global leader in ERP software for the distribution and retail markets”. This acquisition strengthens Dancik’s already substantial commitment to the flooring, tile, and stone industries, as together, the two companies will form one of the strongest ERP offerings for distributors and retailers in all home décor and building materials sectors.

Currently KCS offer the market-leading and award-winning K8 ERP system underpinning over 700 corporate customers world-wide, including builders’ merchants, kitchen and bath, electrical distributors and many other distribution/retail verticals.

Going forward, KCS will be promoting the full Dancik product range as well as their K8 system, each targeted at their respective core vertical markets. Dancik’s headquarters in Cary, North Carolina will become the North American headquarters for KCS.

Mitch Dancik, Chairman of Dancik International commented “The acquisition by KCS brings together two great companies with the desire to deliver focused solutions to markets like flooring that require specialized software. The combined resources of the two companies, with four hundred employees, provide a critical mass for us to enhance what we already offer to our customers, while gaining market share through better solutions and better service. We are so very pleased to have found a company with matching values and the same level of ambition.”
Speaking about the acquisition, Ian Bendelow, CEO of KCS commented “This is a key strategic acquisition for us. It immediately gives us presence in the North American market and a platform for growth in this important region. Fundamentally both Dancik and KCS offer customers value via functionally rich solutions, continuous development that is highly responsive to our customers evolving needs, and our people who have deep knowledge of our customer’s vertical market. Dancik and KCS are a great match.”

Dancik International will operate as an independent business unit of KCS and will retain its name, although with a new brand to emphasize the synergy with KCS. Mitch Dancik and the entire Dancik staff will be working alongside the KCS team to ensure the success of the Dancik/KCS integration. Mitch will also continue in his role as Co-president of the Floor Covering B2B Association (www.fcb2b.com). Looking both back and forward Mitch stated “It has been a thirty-year dream come true, to bring high quality ERP software and services to the flooring and tile industry, which can win against any global ERP systems. I want to see my customers grow both in their core markets and adjacent markets. KCS provides the gravitas to achieve that goal. The measure of our success will be the success of our customers and our industry”.
