Amsterdam, 12 March 2019.
Taurus Group BV and Circle B BV have announced today an agreement for majority share acquisition of Circle B BV to be completed by the end of March 2019. Both companies’ headquarters are located in The Netherlands.
Circle B BV’s core business is focused on promoting the adoption of highly efficient and innovative datacentre and edge infrastructures in Europe as designed and used by Hyperscalers. As an OCP Solution Provider Circle B’s key focus is on delivering solutions based on hardware from the Open Compute Project. This consists of IT racks, power supplies, servers, storage, switches and software that enables Software Defined Networking (SDN) capability.
Taurus Group BV is a conglomerate of traditional and value-added distribution as well as system integration companies located in The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. In addition to its strong global distribution infrastructure, large on-hand inventories of components and hardware in multiple warehouses, Taurus Group has its own enterprise integration division based on software defined datacentre solutions.
Circle B and Taurus Group believe that by joining their expertise, they are bringing a lot of added value to the customers, such as more sustainable and efficient IT infrastructure, streamlined distribution channel, faster delivery times, more integrated solutions, and TCO reduction.
After the acquisition, the founder and CTO of Circle B, Menno Kortekaas will remain in charge of the day to day operations with business oversight from Taurus Group.
