Dacon chooses VIRO

Bert van Druenen en Martin Dibbets

As from today, Dacon ECP is wholly owned by VIRO. Through this acquisition, VIRO is gaining two new locations: Oss (the Netherlands) and Geel (Belgium). The strategic choice to become part of VIRO allows Dacon ECP to work within a multidisciplinary context, enabling it to deliver even more added value to existing and potential customers. Dacon ECP will be gradually integrated into VIRO’s business operations.

Dacon ECP has operated as a business service provider in Industrial Automation since 1998. It develops applications software in the field of PLC, SCADA, IT, and logistics automation, and thus serves industrial companies and machine manufacturers in many market segments. The company has 30 employees.

VIRO is an international engineering firm specializing in Engineering and Project Management with nine branches in the Netherlands, Germany, and Austria and over 700 employees. VIRO provides multidisciplinary total solutions to its customers that focus on strengthening and expanding software engineering.

Through this acquisition, VIRO is expanding its services, so industrial automation and software engineering customers can receive even better service and customized solutions.

As director of Dacon ECP, Bert van Druenen will continue to manage both locations with Astrid Peeters, who is in charge of secondment and recruitment. Edwin Brunenberg of VIRO will focus on project implementation.
