Pragma and the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) have signed an agreement for the establishment of Pragma’s European operations. Mr Henny Jacobs, Global Director Investment Projects at the NFIA, was present in Cape Town to discuss strategies and sign the agreement with our CEO, Adriaan Scheeres. In January 2017 we will open our first European office in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The Netherlands provides Pragma with a central location for reaching the wider European market as well as providing Pragma with a friendly business environment and culture. Through the NFIA Pragma have been able to find the necessary partners and service providers to set up the business.
“The Netherlands economy has proved to be resilient in the pressured economic climate and has seen tremendous growth in the last year. We believe that the Netherlands provides us with a wonderful opportunity to grow our global reach,” says Henk Wynjeterp, Pragma’s Regional Manager Europe, who has been tasked to represent Pragma in Europe.
Pragma already has a 15-year history in Europe and we are excited to bring smart enterprise asset management solutions closer to our clients. We look forward to engaging with the market in Europe on the asset management challenges of tomorrow and believe that our methodologies, tools and people will assist companies to utilise their assets optimally.
