Global technology2use company CHG-MERIDIAN continues its strong growth path in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) with the acquisition of Maia Financial Pty Limited’s (Maia Financial) asset portfolio on June 28th, 2024. The acquired portfolio consists of leased IT, healthcare and industrial equipment. The acquisition bolsters CHG-MERIDIAN’s technology portfolio and expands its market presence in the ANZ region.

The CHG-MERIDIAN Group is a leading global technology2use company. It has more than 1,400 employees in 30 countries across five continents, and develops, finances, and manages tailored technology usage models for the IT, industrial, and healthcare sectors. Its services are available in up to 190 countries through its subsidiaries, partner networks, and affiliated companies.

The Group has been active in the Australian market since 2018 when it acquired Equigroup, a regional technology finance company previously owned by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. The CHG-MERIDIAN brand was later launched in 2019. After operating both brands in the region for five years, the Group made the strategic decision to rebrand Equigroup to CHG-MERIDIAN in 2024, becoming more customer-centric and unlocking operational efficiencies.

It enables us to expand our presence and expertise, particularly in the local healthcare sector. We look forward to meeting and supporting our new customers with their technology needs and exploring new business opportunities thanks to our Group’s range of innovative solutions,” says Lukas Tränkle, Executive Vice President with responsibility for Australia and New Zealand.
