Youvia, formerly DTG (De Telefoongids & Gouden Gids), was acquired by Dublin-based FCR Media in March 2022 to expand its operation in the Dutch market. With the acquisition of the website portfolio of Varias, FCR Media aims to further accelerate its growth ambitions in the Netherlands.
Jon Martinsen, CEO of the FCR Media Group, says, “We are very pleased our Dutch affiliate took over the website portfolio of Varias. Based on its products and services in digital marketing – ranging from the digital Gouden Gids to Websites, SEO, SEA as well as social media marketing services, Youvia will be an excellent partner for Varias customers. And, of course, this deal is a further milestone in the buy-and-build strategy we launched this year in the field of digital services for SMEs in the Netherlands.”
Youvia offers online marketing for various SMEs. The Dutch company works on the online presence, findability, reach, and reputation of its clients.
