Our combined commercial reach now covers almost 70% of the European market for home and business customers, with a single contract that applies to all our customers wherever the are—in Brussels, Paris, Stuttgart, Amsterdam, Milan or Madrid.
Joining SOLUTIONS 30 to step up our growth was the obvious choice for Janssens Field Services: we operate according to the same business model, the same principle of partnership with our customers and—most importantly—we share the same approach to valuing our human resources, since their expertise is what ensures we deliver an outstanding service day after day. In addition, SOLUTIONS 30’s experience in acquisitions will further accelerate our development in the Benelux market.”

We will build on Janssens Field Services’ expertise and market knowledge to increase our penetration of the Benelux market. The trend for our customers in Europe is consolidation into larger groups, making it essential for us to have the critical mass throughout the regions we cover to offer economies of scale.”
