The SCHEMA Group (SCHEMA) is expanding its previous 27% shareholding in TID Informatik GmbH (TID) to 100%.
TID Informatik GmbH (TID), headquartered in Inning am Ammersee and with a branch in Amberg, Germany, produces the CATALOGcreator® software and specializes in electronic spare parts catalogs and the management of service and spare parts information. With its products SCHEMA ST4 and SCHEMA CDS, SCHEMA is the leading manufacturer of professional software solutions for product and process documentation.
As a new wholly-owned subsidiary of the SCHEMA Group, TID Informatik will continue to operate as an independent company on the market alongside SCHEMA Consulting and SCHEMA Systems. The previous managing directors Robert Schäfer and Rafi Boudjakdjian will continue to run TID Informatik GmbH as managing directors.
With this acquisition, the SCHEMA Group is expanding its portfolio as a provider of system solutions for content lifecycle management. With more than 300 customers from various industries, TID Informatik is the leading producer of software for the creation of electronic parts catalogs and service information systems. TID has recorded strong and profitable growth in recent years and employs around 50 people at its Inning am Ammersee and Amberg locations. The SCHEMA Group has thus grown to a total of 180 employees.

Together, we can offer our customers a unique product and service offering.”
