European payment solutions provider, Nets Group has announced the acquisition of CCV Schweiz SA, a subsidiary of CCV Group based in the Netherlands. The company stated that the acquisition is expected to further its European growth and expansion strategy. Nets aims to introduce advanced payments solutions to regions with high growth potential. CCV Schweiz SA will be integrated with Concardis Schweiz AG, which is part of Nets Group.

“This acquisition will help us to broaden our presence across the Swiss value chain and, as a one-stop-shop, offer our customers value-added services beyond standard payment handling,” says Robert Hoffmann, CEO of Concardis and Nets Merchant Services. “The CCV Group is an important and trusted partner for us in the DACH region. Joining forces will take our partnership to the next level, enabling us to support merchants across Switzerland, Germany, and Austria with a strong and competitive alternative offer, and helping to further develop Nets’ pan-European footprint in high growth regions.”
