Netzkontor, Flensburg (Germany)

Services for the telecommunications sector

Profile

The Netzkontor group bundles various services for the telecommunications industry under its umbrella. The origin of the group lies in netzkontor nord, founded in 2008, which offers planning and monitoring of the construction of fibre optic networks, and its subsidiary OpenXS, which provides network management services based on long-term contracts with fibre optic network operators. The Group pursues a buy-and-build strategy and, with NKG Fiberservice, was able to expand its service offering into the areas of installation and fault clearance services, particularly at network level 4 (in buildings). In both the planning and installation areas, activities have been strengthened through further acquisitions in recent years.
