Kinly has announced that it has acquired MK2, as the company looks to strengthen its position in the AV and visual collaboration market through organic growth and strategic acquisitions.
In recent years, MK2 has rapidly developed from Breda into a market leader in the Netherlands within the field of AV solutions and has many leading businesses as long-term customers.
Kinly and MK2 have leading expertise in the Dutch market for IT-driven AV and visual collaboration solutions. Kinly increases its AV knowledge and experience with the deal, while for MK2 and its customers, this means broadening the portfolio with the Kinly Cloud platform and managed visual collaboration solutions.
The joint Kinly organisation in the Netherlands and Belgium has more than 200 employees spread over offices in Amsterdam, Breda, Eindhoven, Zwolle, Breukelen and Ghent. With the acquisition, Kinly has 600 employees worldwide, across offices in Norway, the UK, the US, Singapore, the Netherlands and Belgium.
"The acquisition of MK2 is the first acquisition that fits perfectly within our strategy adopted at the end of last year to become a global leader in this market and to support existing and new global customers as well as possible", said Magnus Ekerot, CEO of Kinly.
"The acquisition by Kinly is an important next step in the growth of MK2," added Roel Vermaat and Jeroen van Doorn, owners of MK2. "We quickly expand our current portfolio of visual collaboration solutions, which is a nice addition to our current and future services."
