Since January 2nd, 2E Interconnection from Oss is part of the 2Connect Group from Waalwijk. Both companies specialize in the development and production of connection solutions for the business market.

2E Interconnection will continue to operate independently from Oss. By joining forces the company of Erik van Hees can achieve its ambitious objectives even better. Therefore, investments will be made in both people and technology in the coming period. It is expected that this will provide additional employment in the long term. 2E Interconnection currently employs 25 people.

Erik van Hees will continue as director. He is pleased with the acquisition: “With a view to innovation and clout, scale is important in our market. This acquisition allows us to offer our clients and employees more options and continuity. 2Connect Group is the ideal partner for us: we complement each other beautifully and and in terms of corporate culture it is also a good match. Together we will continue on the chosen path.”

Higher service level
Mark van den Heuvel, CEO of 2Connect Group, agrees: “I am very happy with 2E Interconnection as a new partner. The cultures of both companies are indeed very close to each other. And by working together, we can provide an even higher level of service to our combined customer base. I strongly believe in the position that 2E has built up. To underline this, it will continue to operate independently and we will continue to invest in the company.
