Arcus IT Group and Infradax join forces
ZWOLLE, 1 February 2023 – IT service provider Arcus IT Group, which runs eight sites up and down the Netherlands, is adding Infradax to the group. “The takeover of Infradax sees Arcus IT double in size and acts to create a company that ranks among the top ICT service providers in the Netherlands. Infradax is bringing a number of interesting activities, services and market segments to the table and increasing our nationwide coverage with new locations. Infradax’ seasoned and spirited management team is also investing in the group in its own name. We consider them to be a major asset which, along with our investor Egeria, will help us to deliver on our growth ambitions in going forward”, comments Arcus IT Group CEO Rob Verbeek.
Solid market position
Like Arcus IT, Infradax is a nationwide IT service provider that assists organisations with continuity, productivity and innovation through IT resources. Alongside Datacenter & Cloud, Modern Workstations and IT Security, Infradax specialises in circular IT services. Infradax mainly operates in the (health) care and business markets. In addition, Infradax Overheid focuses on municipalities and local authorities with specialist service delivery in the areas of application management and data management. As a result of a series of takeovers, in recent years Infradax has grown to become an organisation that is home to around 175 staff and five sites. In joining forces, we are moving to the next level with 425 enthusiastic staff members and 13 sites across the Netherlands.
The parties have submitted the proposed transaction to the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) and both works councils.
Nationwide IT service provider with regional presence
Infradax CEO Tjeerd van ‘t Veld: “We have grown quite a bit in recent years, not just in size but also in terms of our know-how and portfolio, in part courtesy of a number of takeovers. This next step will enable us to jointly work towards accomplishing our ambition to become the best nationwide IT service provider with a regional presence. In this sense, our visions are highly complementary. There is a degree of overlap in terms of services and client segments, but there is also a strong element of broadening our scope of operations, which will allow us to serve our clients even better than before. We are looking forward to implementing the next forward steps in developing our organisation in tandem with Arcus IT.”
The current year will be used to jointly lend concrete shape to our plans and to launch our working relationship in every respect. “Needless to say we are keen to give our clients the full benefit of our combined portfolio. However, in light of our size and the importance of continuity of service delivery to our clients, we do not want to act with undue haste”, explains Rob Verbeek.
