Dutch/Belgian digital infrastructure specialist expands to third country
Maarssen, The Netherlands –Dutch-Belgian digital infrastructure specialist Eurofiber has announced its acquisition of three French companies: Eurafibre, ATE and Eura DC. Based in Lille, these sister companies have a strong position in the north of France in fiberoptic connectivity, cloud and managed services, as well as server hosting services in colocation datacenters.
Collectively, these French companies operate more than 2,000 km of fiberoptic network and 2 local datacenters, servicing 150 business parks and 200 municipalities in the north of France. The acquired companies are strongly complementary with the Eurofiber entities, both in the proximity of their networks and in their vision on open infrastructures. That shared vision means that customers are able to choose connectivity, colocation or cloud infrastructure services according to their own preferences, thus maintaining complete freedom to choose the services, applications and providers they need.
Alex Goldblum, CEO of Eurofiber: ‘We are very happy to join forces with Eurafibre, ATE and Eura DC. The companies fit perfectly in our European growth ambition, especially given their focus and track record for very high customer satisfaction.’ Eurafibre, ATE and Eura DC Chief Executive Maxence Rousseau: ‘We want our companies to get to the next phase and were looking for a solid partner who could help us in realizing that ambition. In Eurofiber, I believe we have found the perfect match on operational and commercial as well as cultural levels. We look forward to working together in serving our current and future customers.’
Both CEO/CTO Maxence Rousseau and CFO/COO Sophie Lebrecht will stay in their current roles within the company structure.
