Vosko joins Conscia, the Nordic IT infrastructure expert
Copenhagen, Denmark, & Gouda, Netherlands, June 29th 2017 – Conscia Holding A/S (“Conscia”), Cisco Gold Partner in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, has entered into an agreement to acquire Vosko B.V. (“Vosko”), a leading Dutch provider of secure network infrastructure solutions and managed services.
Conscia’s Chairman of the Board, Mogens Elsberg, explains: “Over the past few years, Conscia has expanded its operations in Denmark to both Sweden and Norway, and we are now ready to take a big step into the Dutch market. We believe there is a great fit between Conscia and Vosko, not only when looking at their technological expertise, but also from a more cultural perspective where both companies have strong focus on competencies and adding value to customers.”
Vosko – a new member of a family of infrastructure experts
Vosko is a privately owned and highly skilled, full-service provider of enterprise networking, unified communications, security, data centers, and managed services solutions in the Netherlands. Vosko designs, implements, secures, maintains and manages large and complex infrastructure networks for the private and public sector with a strong presence in the healthcare, government and higher education verticals.
“I am excited to become part of the Conscia Group,” said Marc Gozeling, CEO of Vosko. “Our companies bring together compelling strategic values. As organizations face increasing pressure to focus on innovation, reliable communication infrastructure across all functions is becoming a strategic and mission-critical success factor. In combination with Conscia, we can continue to expand our services and strong reputation in the Dutch market and passionately enhance our customer-first culture.”
“Together, the two companies will deliver a market leading North-European champion for network infrastructure solutions,” added Ernst Nijkerk, of Nijkerk Holding B.V., Vosko’s sole shareholder. “Being part of our holding for over 20 years, Vosko has built a long track record of customer orientated and highly innovative network infrastructure solutions. Both companies will benefit extensively from knowledge sharing, creating great value-add for its customers.”
Aside from becoming a part of a larger corporate family, there will be no major changes made to Vosko’s current organization. It will continue to operate as an independent infrastructure provider in the Netherlands. Specifically, Vosko will take Conscia’s unique service solution to the Dutch market and there will be exchange of technology skills and knowledge between the country organizations.
“We are looking very much forward to working with Marc and his team. We are also excited about offering our award-winning service solution to customers in the Netherlands and thereby helping them with life-cycle management of their critical infrastructure,” says Mogens Bransholm, CEO of Conscia.
