As established providers of qualitative and quantitative market research for local, regional and global businesses across more than 50 countries, the Market Probe team brings additional market research expertise to Kynetec’s team, adding around 40 experienced professionals to its global team of more than 600.

By combining the talented and dedicated staff and methodologies from Market Probe with Kynetec’s custom team, along with a considerable investment in innovation, Kynetec is excited about the added value this acquisition will bring to its clients. Kynetec will also now have operations in Belgium, increasing its global presence to 22 countries.
