Eureko's Assistance Centre, EuroCross International, the largest medical assistance centre in The Netherlands, has started operations (1 May 2006) in Warsaw. From its new office, EuroCross Poland provides medical and technical assistance for the Polish insurer, PZU. PZU has some 15 million customers and is the largest insurer in Central and Eastern Europe.

ZEIST, NETHERLANDS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 --

Yesterday at 08.00 the Assistance Centre opened its doors and services.The first report received by the Assistance Centre was of a car accident in Germany, which Assistance attended directly. The Warsaw office has launched with 25 employees, who were trained by experienced colleagues from the Netherlands over the last couple of months.

EuroCross recently signed a contract with the Polish insurer and has therefore established a Polish company named 'EuroCross International Polska sp z.o.o.' "With the introduction of an assistance centre in Poland Eureko seeks opportunities to expand to Central and Eastern Europe", says EuroCross Netherlands Director, Lex Mentink. Lukas Zelnicek, manager at EuroCross Prague and also responsible for the new operation in Warsaw adds: " In PZU we found a solid partner and we are proud to serve so many customers".

EuroCross Poland benefits from the use of a worldwide network that has been built over the last 24 years. A dedicated network management and medical team has conducted negotiations with hospitals, ambulance services and car assistance providers in Poland. EuroCross Poland co-operates closely with the EuroCross Netherlands office. It is expected that over 10.000 assistance files will be processed on an annual basis.
