02 September 2021 Consultancy.eu 1 min. read

International IT services company Xebia has bolstered its expertise in the Google domain with the acquisition of G-company. 

The deal sees Xebia add a cohort of 70 specialists to its team. “This extends our expertise in Google Cloud and Google Workspace, enabling us to better support our customers working on the Google platform with their digital transformation agenda,” said Andrew de la Haije, CEO of Xebia. 

G-company is the oldest IT-services partner of Google in the Netherlands. Founder David Saris established the company in 2007, shortly after Google launched its first suite of business applications. Over the past fourteen years, G-company has grown into an IT consulting firm with offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Malaysia.

Xebia expands Google tech expertise with G-company acquisitionThe Utrecht-based company – which will continue to operate under its own brand – supports clients worldwide with among others application development, working in the cloud, data and machine learning, modern infrastructure and online workplace services. 

“I'm very proud of what we've achieved over the last fourteen years, but as far as I’m concerned, the biggest growth is yet to come. So many workloads still need to move to the cloud. Google is a key player in this, but I believe in freedom of choice, and that’s why we want to offer multi-cloud. With Xebia, we can do that,” said Saris, the CEO of G-company. 

Lennart Benoot, Managing Partner of G-company, added: “With the expertise of Xebia, we can now offer our customers a one-stop-shop experience. From cloud engineering and managed services to machine learning, multi-cloud solutions, data, and AI, cloud-native software development and security.” 

G-company was advised during the transaction by IMPROVED Corporate Finance (M&A advisory) and Vriman Lawyers (legal advisory). The buy-side dealteam was at the time of writing unknown. 

Earlier this year, Xebia acquired Netherlands-based Amazon Web Services partner Oblivion and international player CoMakeIT.
