Sioux Technologies will open a new office in Apeldoorn. The originally Eindhoven-based tech company wants to be closer to both its customers and the labor market in the east of the Netherlands. As of 1 June, the new office can be found in the OAK Building, the high-tech campus of Apeldoorn.

Over the next five years, Sioux aims to grow from fifty to more than a hundred employees in the west and east of the Netherlands. The addition of the new office, alongside those in Delft and Mijdrecht, is a logical next step. Apeldoorn is the perfect base for the tech company to better serve the Zwolle, Enschede, Arnhem and Utrecht areas.

“We see many opportunities in this region to work with interesting technology companies,” comments Marcel Dubois, Sioux branch director for the east of the Netherlands. “These can be both advanced machine and equipment builders who need a strong partner to support them in the field of software or system development, and companies who have challenges of a complex mathematical nature.”

With the new location, Sioux also hopes to further open up the labor market in the east of the Netherlands. Dubois: “Our presence in Apeldoorn is important in the ‘war for high-tech talent.’ There’s a lot of highly educated technical personnel in this region.”
