Mikro Kapital’s acquisition of Anytime represents an opportunity for unrepeatable development in the sector, with positive repercussions for all stakeholders and also for our customers. Anytime and Delimobil share their wealth of know-how, experience and innovation skills, at the service of a constantly growing clientele with continuous new needs. The post-acquisition business plan envisages a growth process, both in terms of turnover and investment in human resources, guaranteeing growth and continuity for both brands that will continue their business separately and independently.
