NEXT TRUSS ACQUIRES INTERAL T.C.
Venray (NL), 30 May 2022 – NEXT Truss from Leeuwarden is acquiring Dutch truss manufacturer Interal T.C., based in Venray, with immediate effect. Since it was first set up in late 2019, NEXT Truss has been on a growth trajectory, with the goal of becoming a global player within 5 years and establishing a leading market position in the events industry. All Interal T.C. employees will remain on board in the new organisation.
Interal T.C. has been manufacturing truss structures for the events industry since 2003. They offer both standard and custom-made systems of the highest quality, with a strong focus on customer service. There is still plenty of potential for future growth within Interal T.C., as well as for expanding NEXT Truss.
The Interal T.C. rental business will in future be operated by AED Rent, which will supply both new and existing customers with dry hire rental of trussing and rigging equipment from the local hub in Venray. Over time, the rental business could be expanded even further, with the addition of other AV products (such as stage and trade show lighting) from AED group, to support the local market.
The acquisition of Interal T.C. is a good fit with the strategy and ambitions of NEXT Truss. The skill and experience available at Interal T.C. will make a positive contribution to the future growth of NEXT Truss and new product development.
The staff and contacts will remain unchanged at both companies, retaining all the skills and experience. NEXT Truss and Interal T.C. will operate under one roof, where management and operations will be integrated to achieve economies of scale for both customers and suppliers.
NEXT Truss, Interal T.C. and AED group will continue to define the future of the AV industry together.
