Eden Springs has acquired Thécafé, signalling its strategy to dominate the Office Coffee Service (OCS) market in the Netherlands. This is the first step in Eden’s longer-term strategy to roll-out a total hydration service across all of its 16 European markets.
Based in Apeldoorn, approximately 60 miles south east of Amsterdam, Thécafé was established in 1999 and currently serves more than 1,000 customers.
Chief executive officer of the Eden Springs Group, Raanan Zilberman, is positive about the future of the business, despite the current economic situation. He said: “This acquisition will enable Eden Springs to offer all customers in the Netherlands with a complete hydration package, with mains and bottle-fed water coolers and a complete range of hot beverage solutions including premium coffee, hot chocolate, tea and even soup.”
In the Netherlands, Thécafé’s industry knowledge will help Eden to provide customers with the very best advice and a wide selection of water and coffee machine solutions, the company said.
