Maarssen – Eurofiber acquires Dutch fiber optic company Brightfiber. The acquisition strengthens Eurofiber’s position for fiber optic connections in Dutch business parks.
Brightfiber develops, builds and manages fiberoptic networks on business parks across the Netherlands. Since its establishment in 2015, Brightfiber has built out its own fiber optic network across 15 business parks. “We have been very successful over the past few years in providing business parks with high-quality fiberoptic connections based on demand aggregation, Brightfiber Director Jim Kervezee. “Now it is time to transferour network tothe international network of Eurofiber, the largest enterprise fiber optic provider in the Benelux. Our customers will benefit from the increased scale and Eurofiber’s expertise.”
“The business community is in the midst of a digital transformation, which has major consequences for what companies demand in terms of the capacity and reliability of their digital connections, Paul Naastepad, managing director of Eurofiber Netherlands. Bandwidth and redundancy requirements, which were mainly dictated by large companies and organizations until recently, are also becoming increasingly common in small and mid-sized enterprises. This gives Eurofiber room to expand in these segments as well. The acquisition of Brightfiber fits in this picture.”
