“Translink Germany has again been key to a successful acquisition for CECOP. They always have the interests and dynamics of both parties in mind, and this has proven to be the right approach. Many thanks to Andreas, Daniel, and the whole team at Translink Germany,” said Jorge Rubio, CEO and Shareholder at CECOP.
