Procurement Services Make Way for EPSA to the Dutch Market
Business Management Review |
International professional services firm EPSA has entered the Dutch market with the acquisition of Procurement Services, a 20-strong consultancy specialized in indirect procurement optimization
FREMONT, CA: The French EPSA Group has taken over 100 percent of the NPR procurement expert Procurement Services from Houten, Eindhoven, and Leeuwarden (The Netherlands) as of the end of January. The critical reasons for this takeover were the growing international character of clients, the challenge of further development, and the desire to secure the future. The French firm, which employs over 1,500 people worldwide, focuses on helping clients improve their business performance, efficiency, and profitability. The President of EPSA remarked that the Netherlands was an important market for them. They were excited to fill a missing piece of their puzzle by now adding Procurement Services to our European presence.
Procurement Services, founded in 2005, assists both public and private sector organizations in optimizing their procurement functions. The company specializes in indirect procurement, with a focus on sectors like logistics, marketing, staffing, IT, and facilities.
Consulting (for example, identifying improvement potential), implementation execution (supporting tenders and the delivery of improvement projects), and continuous improvement are all services provided by the Dutch consulting organization (maintenance of contract and supplier management). Procurement Services will be merged into EPSA's Procurement business, which employs roughly 700 people. The President claimed that the addition of Procurement services has established themselves as the European leader in procurement consultancy.
The President was impressed by the quality of the Procurement services team and management, as well as the company’s entrepreneurial culture and reputation in the market. EPSA has 1,500 workers in 35 countries, dispersed over 25 offices on six continents, working in its seven lines of business: procurement, marketplace, tax, innovation, transformation & digital, energy & environment, and finance.
Meanwhile, for Procurement Services, joining forces is the "next and logical step in our existence," according to co-founders Martijn Heijmans and André Seltenrijch. It provides them with an opportunity to grow their services even further. EPSA's extensive network, as well as its complementing services, provide clients with exciting new options. With the purchases of Kloepfel Group (Germany) and Kronos Group last year, EPSA bolstered its procurement sector.
