Claranet claims it has significantly bolstered its market position in the Netherlands through acquiring Dutch IT outfit Quinfox.
Founded in 1998, Quinfox is a team of 20 employees serving customers in the accounting, healthcare and public sector. It boasts a services portfolio which includes digital services, hosted desktop, managed applications and professional services.
The UK-based MSP stressed that it will keep the acquired business intact. Its founders Huub van den Bosch and Geert Mossink will remain with the company, with the latter being appointed service director for Claranet Benelux.
Claranet claims to now have more than 125 employees in Benelux, producing an annual turnover of €20m.
"We are delighted to join forces with Claranet. Being part of a larger organisation with a broad portfolio of IT capabilities provides us with various benefits, giving us the opportunity to grow and provide our customers with access to more innovative services. We can now take far-reaching steps with optimum security and flexibility in our services," said Mossink.
Acquiring Quinfox marks Claranet's fourth acquisition this year. It bought NetWyse from another Dutch firm called Netwerk Notarissen before focusing its efforts in the UK, where it acquired ethical hacking company NotSoSecure and data storage reseller Union Solutions.
Claranet claims to have annual revenues of €370m and employs 2,000 staff across the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Italy and Brazil.
Joe Macri says the vendor saw 20 per cent of its UK growth come from its Cloud Solution Provider programme last year
