04 April 2022 1 min. read

Dutch IT consulting and services group Broad Horizon has acquired Finland-headquartered Sulava, in a deal that sees the company break through the 1,000 employees mark group-wide and the 400 mark in Scandinavia.

Broad Horizon has been on a strong growth trajectory over the past years, driven by inorganic bolt-ons. In 2019 the company acquired data science consultancy Cmotions, in 2020 three firms were acquired in home market the Netherlands and entry into the Nordics was secured following the acquisition of Delegate in Denmark.

Fast forward to today, and the purchase of 110-strong Sulava (a specialist in workplace solutions on Microsoft platforms) lifts the Nordic headcount to 400+.

In between, Broad Horizon also acquired Danish project management consultancy Projectum.

Jean-Yves Charlier, the CEO of Broad Horizon said: “With Sulava joining the Broad Horizon family, we further broaden our capabilities in the Nordic region. This acquisition aligns perfectly with Broad Horizon’s objective to be a leading specialist in Microsoft technologies across Northern Europe.”

Commenting on the deal, Aki Antman, Co-founder and Group CEO of Sulava said: “We are taking a huge step forward by becoming part of Broad Horizon and being closely linked to other Broad Horizon businesses in the Nordics and across Europe. We will complement each other across the board. It’s a very exciting time for us all.”

The remaining 600-strong headcount of Broad Horizon is mainly based in the Netherlands, with teams also operating in Belgium, Germany, the UK, Spain and South Africa.

Riding the digital transformation wave, Broad Horizon is aiming to further expand its footprint in its four main domains of focus: Cloud & Infra, Workplace, Data & AI, and Business Apps. A buy-and-build approach will remain an integral part of the firm’s growth strategy.
