Founded in 2000, Nucleus has become a trusted player in the Belgian hosting sector. This success is the result of a high level of expertise, wise policies and healthy organic growth. Thanks to its “Uptime-as-a-service” concept, the company provides a comprehensive experience for its customers, with satisfaction and stability as key value indicators. Nucleus has a wealth of experience in hosting the most challenging websites and applications, often involving redundant data centre solutions.

Combell Group considers Nucleus a valuable player in the hosting market and is convinced that, by joining forces, we can achieve greater results in the ever-changing European hosting market. The acquisition of Nucleus will lead to more innovation and opportunities for the customers of both companies.

Nucleus's growth path is impressive. We see many parallels with ourselves and we both always put the customer first in everything we do. In this we have clearly found the perfect partner. Together with Nucleus, we will be able to further build on our mission to become the best “digital enabler” for both entrepreneurs and SMEs. I would like to warmly welcome all Nucleus colleagues to the group and I am convinced that our joint expertise will allow us to serve our customers even better.

Jonas Dhaenens, CEO of Combell Group

 

In the next few months, Combell Group will be working with Nucleus on a brand integration plan for the group, while respecting the values shared by both companies. The “Nucleus” brand will disappear in 2019 and merge with Combell.

Together, we have had an amazing journey. We started with only two servers in 2000 and have now become the founders of the “Uptime-as-a-Service” concept. We have raised Nucleus to a level where our customers expect “the best of the best”, and in order to be able to continue to meet such expectations, we had to take things up a notch. Combell has proven that it puts excellent service first. We feel that this integration enables us to offer our customers the best possible growth path. As entrepreneurs, we see new opportunities for those who dare to venture where others have reservations and we are therefore not afraid to explore new horizons.

David Geens & Wouter Sergeyssels, Managing Partners of Nucleus

 

Both companies will not disclose any financial details about this transaction.
