Valcon beefs up technology capabilities with acquisition of Typeqast

27 January 2022 2 min. read

Within a month of bolstering its consulting division with the acquisition of P2 Consulting, Valcon has now beefed up its technology capabilities with the acquisition of Typeqast.

The deal sees Valcon add a team of around 250 technology and software professionals based in Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Romania to its headcount. “This deal strengthens our Technology and Data practices and enables us to help our clients with a broader portfolio of services through an end-to-end consulting offering,” said Valcon’s Managing Partner Geert van den Goor.

The bolt-on also expands Valcon’s geographical footprint into Central Eastern Europe. The consulting firm now has offices in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden and Germany, as well as nearshore hubs in the four Eastern European countries Typeqast is active in.

Valcon neemt Typeqast over

Typeqast was founded in 2017 and currently serves over 40 customers in Europe and the United States with cloud, technology engineering, software development and low code development, among others.

The joining of forces with Valcon builds on an existing relationship that goes back “a few years”, said Van der Goor. In March last year the two companies took their relationship to a next level when they co-founded a nearshore capability for low code development, mainly focused on the Mendix en Microsoft Power BI technology stack.

Just under twelve months down the line, and having “been impressed with their professionalism and quality of services”, Valcon has now acquired the company in full.

“This fits with Valcon’s ambition to become a premium north-western European operations consulting company merged with deep technology and data capabilities,” said Van den Goor. The deal complements the previous technology-focused acquisitions of SmartRules in 2019 and Viqtor Davis early 2021.

Meanwhile, for Typeqast, joining the now 1,250-strong group will enable its team to work on “more high-end clients” said Typeqast CEO Sonja Meijerink. “We look forward to develop the complex technologies and platforms needed by Valcon’s consultants to implement the strategies and operational improvements they work on.”
