The WCS Group currently comprises eight independent companies in the Netherlands and Belgium, whose operations are overseen by the Group’s holding company in Leiden.

The companies that make up the Group have all adopted exceptionally high standards with regard to quality control (almost all our communication companies are ISO-certified) and achieve operating results that are significantly higher than those of comparable companies in their respective markets. The WCS Group has international ambitions and a scope that extends far beyond the Benelux.
