Part of adesso's growth strategy is internationalisation with a local footprint. The transaction increases adesso’s number of employees working in the Netherlands by 43. The managing directors of Blue4IT, Codesquad and Bluefront will remain involved with a minority interest of together under six percent and will remain part of the company's operations.
adesso Netherlands B.V. was founded in July 2019 with managing director Jan Heuker at the helm. With the acquisition of Blue4IT, Codesquad and Bluefront, adesso aims to further increase its footprint in the Dutch IT market. The three companies are specialized in front- and backend architectures based on Java. The joining of forces between adesso and Blue Group IT results in an excellent symbiosis in which both parties can benefit from each other's knowledge and expertise.
Jörg Schroeder, Chief Financial Officer of adesso, explains the reasons for the latest acquisition of adesso Group in the Netherlands: "Through our majority shareholding in three successfully operating companies of Blue Group IT, we are expanding our highly qualified IT team in the Netherlands and offer the Dutch market access to the bundled knowledge and IT expertise of over two decades of adesso Group in Europe.
