One more step taken by Mixvoip, the Luxembourg-based specialist for telephony and internet. The local company that keeps on growing also intends to expand internationally. Within ten years, Mixvoip was able to impose itself in the Luxembourg economic and technological landscape. Now, it made public the acquisition of Voipgate, which was completed at the end of last December.
The company with its 50 employees saw the light of day in 2008. «Our customers are companies, both from the public and private sector. We are exclusively working B2B», explains Loïc Didelot (CEO of Mixvoip) to Paperjam.
«Our two main services are Cloud PBX (a phone system hosted in the cloud) and SIP Trunk (another IP-based telephony system, which offers significant cost-saving opportunities for companies). Until today, we have conquered quite a bit of the Luxembourg market, especially at the level of SMEs.»
Service and innovation
The acquisition of Voipgate, a pionnieer in the VoIP field that is known for its mastery of SIP technology, therefore seems to be obvious. «Our competences complete each other», adds Loïc Didelot. «Voipgate’s employees are already well integrated and they bring a lot to the table. We also profit from their customer portfolio. This will further strengthen our position. Above all, rather than fighting for certain customers, we will be able to focus on service and innovation.»
This step might be a little wink of fate, since Voipgate Loïc Didelot’s first employer. «This really is the first company that I’ve worked for», Didelot confirms. «This takeover is the proof that I left without anybody being upset!»
An interest in Belgium
Mixvoip’s ambitions obviously don’t stop here. In their field of activity, the dilemma is the same as for a shark in the ocean: if it stops, it dies. «We don’t have any problems in Luxembourg», concludes the CEO, who now wants to reinforce his position. «In the past year, we recorded a growth of 67%. The year before, in 2017, it already was at 50%.» Outside of Luxembourg we still have room to grow. After the creation of Mixvoip SPRL in Brussels, the company turned its eyes to Liège with a clear interest in the Belgian market.
