Wireless Logic has acquired SIMPoint, a fast growing IoT connectivity specialist in The Netherlands.
Founded in 2012 and located in Eindhoven, SIMPoint delivers customised M2M (Machine-to-Machine) connectivity solutions based on cellular (2G, 3G and 4G) and Low Power Wide Area Networks (LoRa) technologies and is a partner to KPN.
The business offers customised data plans, variable durations, extended security (VPN’s and customised APN’s) and control for customers via an industry leading customer portal. Highly customisable offers and excellent customer service have enabled SIMPoint to grow a base of over four thousand highly satisfied customers across a wide range of industry verticals including retail, security, healthcare, water management, automotive, utilities, smart cities and agriculture.
The acquisition by Wireless Logic Group for an undisclosed sum is the group’s sixth in just four years. It is the second since Montagu Private Equity invested into the organisation earlier in June 2018.
Commenting on the SIMPoint acquisition, Oliver Tucker, Group CEO for Wireless Logic Group said: “I’m delighted to welcome SIMPoint into the Wireless Logic family. This acquisition significantly strengthens our connectivity solutions offering and adds scale and reach to our European operations.
