In order to be able to map the spectrum of possible solutions and latest technologies and create real value-add for our customers, we want to continue our growth path.

In addition to DPE’s experience in supporting the growth of medium-sized companies, we were convinced by DPE’s entrepreneurial spirit and value orientation."
