Company Background

Tucana was established in 2000, as a management buy-out of the telecom divisions of Tekelec Europe in France (1958), the Benelux (1968) (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg). One year later the German speaking countries including Germany, Austria and Switzerland joined the Tucana group.

Where Tekelec Europe was a broad-line distributor with a side activity in telecom test equipment, the MBO allowed for a total focus of the new company to the test & measurement activities and related services. This young and enthusiastic company brought in over 40 years of experience.

The company name was changed into Tucana to distinguish itself from the predecessor. Today Tucana expands further into the IT market based on the extensive experience built out during the many years in the extremely demanding telecom market.

Focus on Service & Support

Tucana offers indispensable support to their customers during the complete lifecycle of the deployed solutions. This starts as aid in the development phase of new products and services and during installation and operations of the network.
