New acquisition: Gritt Projects joins forces with Circet Benelux for 5G and optical fiber.

Circet Benelux’s takeover of Gritt Projects confirms its ambitions in mobile networks, with the Belgian service provider supporting our colleagues in Belgium on the current transition from 4G to 5G and the extension of optical fiber networks. “We absolutely needed more resources to continue to respond to booming demand in Belgium,” comments Bavo De Cock, CEO of Circet Benelux.

The development of mobile 5G and fixed optical fiber networks shifted into high gear in 2022 and all the signs point to a further acceleration in the months and years to come. Circet, a global provider of network infrastructure services, and Gritt Projects have decided to join forces in response to the exponential growth in this area.

“As a pioneer in a growing market, we are always looking for capacity and diversification so that we can expand our range of services,” explains Bavo De Cock (CEO Circet Benelux). “The takeover of Gritt Projects will allow us to support our customers even more effectively in the transition to 5G and ensure end-to-end deployment of optical fiber infrastructure. We already had the know-how, but this merger was essential in terms of supporting our customers’ ambitions.”

Herman De Keukeleire (CEO Gritt Projects): “Gritt Projects is delighted to be part of Circet Benelux. Our current market positioning is 100% compatible with Circet’s ambitions. We share the same DNA, the same commitment to sustainable business and the same long-term vision. We’re confident that this merger will only strengthen the existing organization and that it will allow us, together, to provide even better support for existing and future opportunities on the Benelux market. Not to mention the bright prospects that this deal offers to all Gritt Projects’ employees."

Circet Benelux is delighted to welcome its 180 employees and work with them to develop the telecom networks of the future. And Circet Benelux is also continuing to hire new employees in Belgium and the Netherlands to support its own growth, which is the fastest in the sector.
