With the acquisition of ESAS by Circet, ESAS will be able to accelerate their growth strategy while continuing to operate autonomously in the Benelux under the leadership of the current ESAS management.

Circet is the number one provider of telecom network services in Europe, with an annual turnover approaching €1.8 billion. Circet provides a wide range of services, including engineering, deployment, installation and maintenance services to telecom operators, covering both mobile and fixed technologies.

We very much welcome the ESAS team into the Circet Group

We are very excited to now see ahead of us the significant growth opportunities in the Benelux.”

We are very pleased to join forces with Circet Group

Bavo De Cock, CEO of ESAS: “We are very pleased to join forces with Circet Group. Combined with their expertise, platforms and client relations, we will be able to offer better services to our customers in the Benelux. 2020 has been a remarkable year, nevertheless ESAS was able growing its turnover to 240M EUR, both via organic and acquisitive growth. I believe that 2021 will be an even more exciting year!”  

Telecom networks are becoming increasingly vital in the world of tomorrow. By combining the two organizations, they are a trusted partner to build and maintain them. With the acquisition of ESAS by Circet, Buysse & Partners will exit the capital of ESAS as an investor. Buysse & Partner has been an equity investor in ESAS since 2016 and supported the management in the successful growth of the company. The final closing of the deal is still subject to approval by the national competition authorities.
