Intracto acquires ezCompany and becomes the largest Drupal specialist in the Benelux. EzCompany is the largest Drupal specialist in the Netherlands, with 50 employees. 

EzCompany was founded in 2001 and is managed by Bas van der Zalm and Bas van den Nieuwenhuijzen. In recent years, the company has grown to become the largest Drupal specialist in the Netherlands with 50 employees.

The portfolio includes many great references such as governments, universities and numerous major brands (Jaguar, Land Rover, Graydon, …).

Drupal team of 75 colleagues largest in the Benelux

Bas van den Nieuwenhuijzen , managing director ezCompany: “To be honest: we weren’t actually looking for a buyer. It started with a casual conversation on the terrace with Martijn Vervoordeldonk of Have A Nice Day. He talked about the acquisition of Have A Nice Day by Intracto and how positive he experienced it. Becoming the  biggest Drupal party of the Benelux  together seemed like something to us”.

Martijn Vervoordeldonk , managing director of Have A Nice Day: “It is a privilege to take the next steps with such enthusiastic entrepreneurs. The  growth ambitions  of Intracto and our place in the Dutch organization have played a major role. Not only we, but certainly our colleagues get energy from a company that is successful and continues to grow”.

Demand for Drupal continues to grow strongly

Pieter Janssens , managing director of Intracto: “We are organised on many technologies, but  the market demands more and more Drupal technology . That’s why it’s ‘right’ to join forces in order to be even stronger in the market together”.

“We want to continue to grow in the following years. For ourselves, but also for our customers. From that point of view, we find it extremely valuable to bring ezCompany and their team members on board. They are known as a  quality company with talents  on board. In addition, the Netherlands is a logical step for us to take in order to realise our further expansion”.

Independent advice

However, Intracto continues to guarantee  objective advice  regarding  the choice of a   platform . The large technical team has all the knowledge for most technologies such as Drupal, Episerver, Umbraco, Sitecore, WordPress, Salesforce, HubSpot, Selligent, SharpSpring ….

Strong presence in the Netherlands and Belgium

The company ezCompany already has a solid reputation in the Netherlands. For example, the company occupies first place in the well-known Emerce 100 list in the category ‘Internet agencies Fullservice – Medium’.

With the acquisition, Intracto now has 200 team members in Belgium and 100 in the Netherlands. That was only 30 5 years ago.

Management of ezCompany stays on board

Bas van der Zalm and Bas van den Nieuwenhuijzen stay on board and join the group. Together with the Intracto team they are actively and confidently looking to the future.
