Pushing forward with its ambitious growth plan, ICT Group has announced to buy 100 percent of the shares of Profit Consulting and Strypes Netherlands. The news comes just a few weeks after the Rotterdam-based industrial automation expert made public that it had, itself, reached an agreement to be taken over, pending approval. The two acquisitions increase ICT’s scale and market share in the technical automation industry. The financial details of the purchases aren’t being disclosed.
