Biddinghuizen, Netherlands & Hauppauge, New York – November 3, 2014 – Globecomm announced today that it has partnered with Gannexion to provide e-welfare services in the African nation of Mali, providing communications and morale support for on-site personnel. The Mali installation expands on a network of facilities served by Gannexion and Globecomm in Afghanistan, Turkey and other EMEA nations.
