Re-branded experience

NovAcec Services is a transformer service company founded in March 2020, having acquired the business activities and the experienced team of the former CG Holdings Services division after bankruptcy of CG in Belgium. The company was created with the support of a Belgian industrial investment fund and Veronique Landrain as the managing director.

The history of the company goes all the way back to the 1980s, drawing its origin from the ACEC company and from the Pauwels Trafo Service company founded in 1986, which became CG Holdings Services in 2009. Hence, it is a succession of companies that has led the experienced service staff to NovAcec Services.
