The Cronos Group’s departure as a shareholder in Aviniti is the underlying reason for the acquisition. Founder and director Tim Van Gasse remains in post as a director and will also become a director at Digitopia. Jan Bussels will become CEO and, together with Sylvie Van de Leest, will assume the day-to-day management of the companies within the Digitopia Group.
With the acquisition, Digitopia Group will now achieve a revenue of 15 million euros and manage over 30,000 digital touch points in 6 countries. The 50 employees will continue to grow together at the three branches in Antwerp (Schilde), Paal-Beringen, and Deerlijk. Jan Bussels will become CEO and, together with Sylvie Van de Leest, will assume the day-to-day management of the companies within the Digitopia Group.
Jan Bussels: “The acquisition of Aviniti makes Digitopia Group the biggest Belgian player by far in this digital market. The synergy between the companies – Digital Signage, Collaboration & AV integration – and the joint expertise allows us to further evolve on a European level as well, and to offer a comprehensive package to our clients.”
Tim Van Gasse: “Our companies have a long history, each with its own direction and specialism. Client synergy, economies of scale, and the sum of skills puts us in a great and competitive position where we can have even more value for our clients.”
