Wallingford, Oxfordshire, September 7, 2021 – Jonas Software (“Jonas”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Newline ASP partnership (Newline). Newline is the leading supplier of auction software to the livestock market industry in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, and North America. The auction management software is used in virtually every type of auction; saleroom, auction house, plant & machinery, and commercial auctions. “This acquisition provides the start of an exciting new vertical for us,” said Darrell Boxall, Portfolio Manager. “While retaining the independence and family feel of this well-renowned business, we feel the depth of sector knowledge within Newline supported by Jonas’ long-term vision and best practices makes for a winning formula.”
“Newline was founded in 1983 by my father, David Jones, and specialized in the writing of auction software for livestock auctioneers. Both myself and my brother Simon joined the family business and after working through many roles became managing partners. We are excited for our customers, staff & ourselves about the journey ahead with Jonas and are looking forward to learning from a global organisation and how to build upon our successes to date.”, stated PC Jones, as former managing partner and newly appointed Managing Director of Newline.
