New TSH brand for telecom & ICT companies TICTS gets off to a flying start with acquisition of Westers
TSH is expanding in a new market segment with the launch of TICTS (Total ICT Solutions). TICTS fuses ambitious ICT & Telecom organizations into a solid one-stop-shop proposition for SMEs. TICTS is off to a flying start with the acquisition of Westers. Nils Vermeulen, Managing Director of Score Utica (part of TICTS) will lead TICTS as General Manager.
Whereas in the past telecom and ICT were two separate domains, more and more customers are looking for a partner that can deliver and integrate both services. But in practice the two propositions are not always easy to unite in one company. TICTS lets telecom & ICT organizations realize their ambitions through mutual cooperation and knowledge exchange between the various companies. In addition, companies in TICTS benefit from the stability and experience that TICTS offers as part of TSH, Strikwerda Investments’ portfolio company focused on the European MSP market.
According to John Reynders, who started as CEO of TSH on September 1, expansion into the telecom market through TICTS is an important part of TSH’ growth strategy: “Telecom is an integral part of business operations within companies. The overlap of telecom with IT has only increased in recent years and with the emergence of services such as Microsoft Teams, proper integration between telecom & ICT has become crucial. We as TSH see with the launch of TICTS and the acquisition of Westers a wonderful opportunity to grow further in this domain as well by helping customers in a distinctive way with practical integrations and beautiful innovations.”
The freedom to grow. Together.
As General Manager of TICTS, Nils Vermeulen is enthusiastic about the addition of Westers to TICTS: “When we as Score Utica joined Strikwerda Investments in 2022, we set a clear course together. In it, with the help of Strikwerda Investments and TSH, we want to grow into the leading telecom & ICT platform in the Netherlands. With the establishment of TICTS and the acquisition of Westers, we are now taking a major step forward in that direction. I am therefore very pleased to welcome Robin Nijhof and his team as part of TICTS. By joining TICTS, Westers can continue to focus on its customers and work with other entrepreneurs within TICTS on improvements and innovative services. Fully in line with the TICTS philosophy: The freedom to grow. Together.”
Robin Nijhof, CEO at Westers, says, “Our success has been driven by constant focus on customer needs. TICTS offers us a combination of expert knowledge and an environment where you can advance through collaboration with other entrepreneurs. That’s what Westers and its clients need so we can continue to provide the best service to our clients.” Within TICTS, Westers will continue to operate as an independent ICT service provider under its own brand and independent management from its existing offices in Eemnes and Capelle aan den IJssel.
