In line with its fast implementation strategy in Germany, Geodesia is pleased to announce the acquisition of Proef Deutschland GmbH (“Proef”), a major player in the deployment of fibre in Germany. Proef is a family-owned business which has been successfully delivering over the past 9 years best-in-class fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services across Germany for both tier 1 telecom operators and utility companies. The company currently commands more than 250 people in Germany and is particularly active in design, construction (NE3), and customer connection (NE4) across the country.
With this deal, Geodesia firmly solidifies its German foundations and is poised to becoming a major player in broadband deployment in Germany. Owing to a leadership presenting a similar DNA and culture as Geodesia, Proef’s acumen diversifies Geodesia’s national presence in Germany—with a particular emphasis towards the North of the country—,adds important additional years of German experience to Geodesia, and thus further reinforces Geodesia’ readiness and position to deliver its ambitious 2023 programs and objectives.
In less than 11 months after its arrival in Germany, Geodesia currently manages close to a thousand workers and has met with more than 70 municipalities across the country. Using an innovative approach of bringing fibre closer to the home to enable faster customer connections, Geodesia has already deployed annualised volumes of wired homes making it one of the largest fiber deployers in Germany.
