The move will give Dstny a truly robust, pan-European footprint.
This week, European cloud communications provider Dstny announced that it has acquired easybell, its German rival. The acquisition is “essential to Dstny’s growth strategy and adds a new country as well as new capabilities to the group”, the company said.
Founded in 2006, Berlin-based easybell provides telephony solutions to B2B customers. The company offers a “fully digital” approach through a well-distributed network of 2,000 partners. With 75 employees and 100,000 customers, easybell specializes in IP-based communications. The product range includes VoIP telephony, SIP trunks, a cloud PBX developed in-house and optional broadband connections.
For its part, Dstny offers tools that are natively mobile-first, locally adaptable, easy to use, and easy to integrate, according to the company. Dstny delivers its products to clients, partners, and service providers. Dstny boasts 800 employees in seven European countries — Belgium, Netherlands, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and UK — and had an annual turnover of nearly €190 million in 2021.
Straddling the European market together
The combination of the two companies will give Dstny a truly pan-European footprint. The company wants to realise various growth objectives, said Daan De Wever, CEO of Dstny Group. “With easybell onboard, we are not only adding Germany as a country, one of the most exciting markets in Europe. We are also adding exceptional people and talents to our group. The company is years ahead with their digital mindset and their ability to sell products online”, he said.
Andreas Bahr, CEO of easybell, echoed De Wever’s enthusiasm. “Dstny and easybell share the same pan-European vision, and by joining Dstny, we can speed up our internationalization process significantly. We also get access to a product portfolio, which is positioning us as an innovation leader in our home markets today and tomorrow.”
