As part of its continuing global growth strategy, Nonius has announced today it has acquired TendiQ, the Netherlands’ foremost HSIA Technology Service Integrator, with operations covering the whole of Northern Europe.
Effective immediately, TendiQ becomes Nonius Europe, and will be brought into the Nonius fold. The business will continue its support to current TendiQ customers, as well as develop new customers throughout Europe. Willem-Jan te Riele, will take on the role of Vice-President of the Business and spearhead the development of Nonius business in Europe. The entire TendiQ team will continue to support existing customers and develop new business in Europe as “Nonius Europe”.
António Silva, CEO at Nonius, said: “TendiQ has a proven and experienced team and an install-base of over 4.000 guest rooms in hotels across northern Europe, who serves distinguished business enterprises such as IHG, Marriott and the WestCord Group. Nonius has incorporated the company and its HSIA product into its own portfolio and will continue to support it.” The Nonius CEO remarked, “Through this acquisition Nonius is now able to jumpstart its European business with an established range of technology solutions, delivered through a dedicated European team with the right know-how and experience, providing us with the infrastructure we need to support existing projects while adding new ones. By becoming part of the Nonius family, under the newly incorporated Nonius Europe, the company will be able to reach further across Europe and bring additional levels of service to its customers, while providing momentum and revenues to the entire business.”
Willem-Jan te Riele commented: “Merging the companies is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a great fit for both companies and their respective stakeholders. We can translate our pooled resources into true value for our customers and, in the long run, it benefits all our stakeholders by reaching out to new markets and customers, as well as keeping a high standard of service for our current – and new – ones. Nonius is ambitious, financially secure and shows consistent growth year-on-year”, he added, “this combination complements our technical expertise and knowledge of the European market. Coming from an ‘operator’ model in the past, with expensive long lasting agreements and heavily-financed solutions, I have seen that the operator model is past its expiration date and does not offer a sustainable business model. Today’s customer is looking for technology suppliers who are able to offer great value services and low maintenance. These services belong to our standard proposition and needs to be delivered with full support. A business-class-solution-for-economy-pricing approach? That, we are able to offer!”
With over 9 years’ experience, and serving over 100.000 guest rooms, Nonius is the world’s fastest growing Hospitality technology solution provider, whose work has proven it a trusted partner to the Hospitality and Cruise liner businesses, which can now deliver global solutions and global support through its network of fully-owned subsidiaries and partners.
