Unikal Tech Partners (“Unikal” or “the group”), a leading Information Technology company, is pleased to announce that it has completed its second investment by acquiring Amura IT.
The transaction is a second and significant milestone in the Buy-&-Build strategy of the group.

The project started with the incorporation of EinzelNet in May 2022. The companies part of Unikal have significant experience and credentials in critical IT services such as those relating to cloud, enterprise management systems, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, or big data.
Amura IT is a fast-growing specialist in data analytics, artificial intelligence, and digital transformation.

These capabilities have enabled the company to develop a unique base of international and national blue-chip clients, composed of both private and public entities. Amura IT founders will join as partners and shareholders of Unikal, and Juan Antonio Mingorance will continue to lead the company together with Amura IT’s team. Amura IT will benefit from Unikal’s synergies such as extended technical, commercial, and financial growth capacity.
Juan Antonio Mingorance, CEO of Amura IT and Partner of Unikal, states: “One of the fundamental pillars of Amura’s 2.0 strategic plan has been and will be the continuous search for both technological and commercial Partners that allow us to grow, diversify and expand our capacities. Our exciting alliance with Unikal Tech Partners will allow us to join forces, boosting Amura’s capacity to cover large markets, offer greater solutions, and carry out larger projects. This new adventure will benefit both our team and our clients, as we evolve our capacities to the highest level.
