US-based satellite data communications company LeoSat has opened an office in The Hague, the Netherlands. LeoSat provides a unique option for the world’s increasing global data traffic. The satellite data market will grow 30 percent per year for the next eight years. LeoSat will provide the first commercially available enterprise grade global data service worldwide.
LeoSat is a welcome addition to The Hague’s network of innovative tech companies. The Hague’s Vice Mayor Saskia Bruines said, “LeoSat’s system is built for tomorrow’s data requirements and I am convinced that The Hague will prove to be the right place for them.”
The Hague’s Satellite Cluster
The Hague is the Netherlands’ seat of government. LeoSat will join the city’s growing satellite cluster. The company will support The Hague’s finance, government, energy and maritime sectors.
“We believe The Hague will be an excellent location to develop our European operations and create new opportunities for our customers, stakeholders and staff,” said Mark Rigolle, CEO of LeoSat. “With The Hague and Randstad region already home to a number of entities specialized in the field of space and satellite communications such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the Netherlands Space Office (NSO) and companies such as SES and O3B Networks, we are looking forward to bringing an additional dimension to this established high tech pool.”
As a hub for research and development, the Netherlands is an attractive location for tech companies.
