Gritt Projects joins Circet in the Benelux

Circet Benelux is accelerating its mobile ambitions by acquiring Gritt Projects. The Belgian service
provider will support Circet in the transition from 4G to 5G and the rollout of fiber networks.
"Together we will be all-the-more efficient to serve our clients in a context of increasing demand"
said Bavo De Cock, CEO of Circet Benelux.

The rollout of 5G and fiber optic networks gained solid momentum in 2022. That speed will only increase in the coming months and years. Circet, the global telecom network service provider, and Gritt Projects are joining forces to respond to that exponential growth.

Bavo De Cock (CEO Circet Benelux) said, "As a pioneer in a fast growing market, we are continuously looking for capacity and diversification to expand our service portfolio. With the acquisition of Gritt Projects, we are ready to support our customers even better in the transition to 5G and the full end-to-end deployment of fiber networks. We already had that expertise in-house, but this expansion is crucial to fulfil our customers' shared ambitions."

Herman De Keukeleire (CEO Gritt Projects): "Gritt Projects is delighted to become part of Circet Benelux. The current market position of Gritt Projects is 100% compatible with the ambitions of Circet. At both companies we find the same DNA ofsustainable entrepreneurship and long-term vision. We are convinced that this fusion will lead to a reinforcement of the existing organization and which will allow us to better support existing and new growth opportunities in the Benelux market. This transaction offers good future perspectives for all stakeholders of Gritt Projects.

Circet Benelux is looking forward to welcoming the 180 employees of Gritt Projects and working together to design and deploy the telecom networks of the future. As a leading player in the industry, Circet Benelux also continues to hire additional in-house staff in Belgium and the Netherlands.
