Ahmedabad, Oct 9 (UNI) Ahmedabad-based Gateway TechnoLabs today announced merger with NINtec B.V of Netherlands.
''It is a significant step towards further consolidation of our business and services in Europe, while gaining a firm foothold in Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands&Luxembourg),'' said company managing director Niraj Gemawat.
Addressing mediapersons here today, Mr Gemawat said, ''Gateway TechnoLabs is one of the few mid-size technology companies from India to venture into non-English speaking countries of the European Union. Today Gateway TechnoLabs does over 50 per cent of its business from these markets and the rest is from US and other parts of world.'' Mr Gemawat said in recent past, Gateway TechnoLabs had set up JVs in Sweden and Denmark.

NINtec is very strategically poised in the European market with major corporates and mid-corporates as long-term clients. Our activities in Business Process Outsourcing (Media) and our products division will bring in added advantage in this merger and allow us to leverage our position in EU.''
