Peercode opens office in Eindhoven
On May 25th, Peercode opened its office in Eindhoven. In December 1999, Peercode was founded and started on the TU Campus in Eindhoven. In 2006 there was a need for a location centrally in the Netherlands and Peercode moved to Geldermalsen. Setting up Peercode Eindhoven is a logical step to realize the growth ambitions.
