The combined organization, Diebold Nixdorf, is aiming to become a dominant global player in service and financial services software.

GREEN, Ohio – Diebold, based here, has completed its $1.8 billion merger with Germany-based Wincor Nixdorf AG in a deal that makes Diebold the world’s largest manufacturer of automated teller machines while significantly expanding its presence in Europe.

The combined organization – with an increasing focus on service and financial services software beyond ATM manufacturing – began operating as Diebold Nixdorf on Tuesday (Aug. 16). Corporate headquarters will remain in Green, where the company hosted an unveiling for its new logo on Monday. The company’s stock will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Germany under the symbol DBD.

“I am excited to announce the birth of Diebold Nixdorf, a global leader driving connected commerce with the expertise to handle the ‘always on’ needs of banking and retail consumers,” Andy W.
