DTN and MeteoGroup have announced that they are being integrated into one company to become the world’s largest private weather business. The joint company will soon be rebranded as DTN and a DTN European headquarters in Utrecht, Netherlands will be established.

“Demand has increased significantly from large multinational enterprises who need a technology-focused and innovative company to provide global weather insights and advanced data analytics,” said Steve Matthesen, DTN chief executive officer. “Businesses around the world recognize how critical accurate, reliable and hyperlocal weather information is to mitigating risk, improving safety and sustainability and optimizing performance.”

MeteoGroup’s integration increases DTN’s weather expertise to 200 meteorologists working in weather rooms across the world. The addition of more than 10,000 weather observation stations creates the largest network of private weather observations worldwide, ensuring forecast accuracy to help customers operate more efficiently and mitigate weather risks.

“This is fantastic news for our company and our customers,” said Marc Chesover, former MeteoGroup chief executive officer and current president of Europe, DTN. “Joining DTN allows us to significantly expand our weather network, analytics and expertise globally. That means our customers have access to mission critical weather decision-support solutions at any time in any part of the world.”
