The Inflexion difference

In 2016 Inflexion carved Kynetec out of its listed German parent GfK. The company subsequently embarked on an ambitious growth journey, with significant investment into technology and acquisitive-led growth, including the transformational purchase of Germany-based Kleffmann Group. The successful partnership with Inflexion strengthened the firm’s operations in North and South America, Asia and Europe, resulting in a global business operating in 30 countries.
