Bigben Interactive is now a major player in the video game industry on the main European markets. With a 32 per cent market share in France for console peripherals, the company located in Lesquin, close to Lille, enjoys a clear leadership in its home market and a strong presence across Europe resulting from its expansion abroad started 8 years ago with:
- The acquisition in 1999 of the Benelux leader for the exclusive distribution of video game software, the Atoll Soft company (located in Tubize near Brussels)
- The takeover in April 2000 of Planet Distribution, the British leading independent video game trader (now located in Eastleigh near Southampton)
- And the creation in April 2000 of a subsidiary in Germany (located in Bergheim near Cologne) now listed with all German major retailers.
This international network was completed by the opening of a R&D structure in Honk-Kong in April 2000.
