Nuts Groep specializes in the most efficient purchasing and invoicing of energy. To this end, the company has built a robust administrative organization, in which the largest possible part of the activities is carried out in house. Nuts Group develops the IT systems for the support of its processes itself.

Director and founder Sjef Peeraer: “We expect that the market for energy supply in the Benelux will consolidate in the coming years. That means an opportunity for the Nuts Group to continue to grow and to use our platform for energy purchasing and invoicing more broadly. The involvement of Waterland gives us the strength to realize further growth both organically and through acquisitions.”
