Geodesia is pleased to announce the acquisition of MUP GmbH, a major player in the deployment of fibre in Germany. Being a family business at its core, MUP is a best-in-class engineering company in Germany, having delivered fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and cable services for both tier 1 telecom operators, Stadtwerke and utility companies in Germany for more than 25 years. MUP currently employs more than 150 people, and is spearheaded by outstanding entrepreneurs Janko Paper and his partner Sven Steller.
With such acquisition, Geodesia adds a central element to its German soul, and will immensely benefit from the future contributions of Janko and Sven—alongside their experience and establishment in the market—towards delivering its ambitions in Germany.
Only less than six months after its establishment in Germany, and four months after the commencement of civil engineering works, Geodesia currently boasts several hundreds of workers and has met with more than 50 municipalities across the country. Utilising an innovative approach whereby fibre is brought closer to the inhabitant to enable faster client connections, Geodesia has already deployed annualised volumes of homes passed amounting to make it one of the largest fibre deployers in Germany.
Janko Paper, owner and CEO of MUP says: “Over the past years MUP GmbH had been looking for a strong and visionary partner. Today, we are proud to have found in Geodesia such ideal partner for a successful FTTx expansion in Germany, a company which pursues a future-oriented strategy of growth, innovation, and investment.".
Anthony Maatouk, CEO of Geodesia Europe says: “I’m pleased to welcome MUP with us, one of the most respected engineering companies in Germany. Owing to the experienced teams at Geodesia, such symbiotic combination will allow us to accelerate our programs and increase our production trajectory in the German market, in our ceaseless effort to serve our customers in the best manner and exemplify continuous improvement.".
