High-class services & professional quality support
Our mission is to be a natural partner for our customers. We provide them with high quality service and professional support. Long-term relationships are an important part of the spirit of our business: some of our key customers have been with us for over 15 years.
What we do
We are a leading satellite service provider and teleport operator, based in the Netherlands. We provide VSAT and mobile satellite services to companies active in the Mining, Maritime, and Energy industries, to NGOs and Governments. Our broadcasting customers benefit from live audio and video transmission services, downlink and transcoding services, and uplinking of TV bouquets. We serve our wholesale customers with teleport services, Virtual Network Operating (VNO) services, and Satellite Capacity leasing.
Where we come from
Castor Networks was once the satellite broadcasting division of the leading national telecom operator KPN. Following a management buy-out, Castor Networks was initiated in 2005. The company is now privately financed and based in De Meern, the Netherlands. We are owner-operator of two teleports and a leased fibre network from which we provide services to an international client base.
Where we want to go
Our global mission is to become, and stay, a first choice partner for our customers. We will continue to provide them with our high quality services and professional support. Our strategy for our land business is to expand our local presence in key geographical markets. We are proud to say we already have offices in South Africa, South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Congo DRC and Mexico serving VSAT customers.
For our global maritime business we are expanding our Offshore, Commercial Shipping and Superyacht customer base both through organic growth as well as targeted acquisitions building out our key differentiators such as completely integrated IT services while remaining the agile, flexible company providing excellent support and fast reaction times which are so appreciated by our customers.
