We are confident this transaction is a significant step forward in our mission to be the nation's most complete service provider."
This deal marks NexusTek's fifth M&A transaction in four years. NexusTek is backed by Abry Partners, an experienced media, communications, business and information services-focused private equity firm with over $77 billion of leveraged transactions under its belt.
"Abry believes that strategic acquisitions NexusTek to increase its competitive advantage in the highly fragmented cloud and managed IT services market," said James Scola, a principal with Abry. "Small and middle-market businesses can only reap the full benefits of running mission-critical applications in the cloud by working with a partner equipped to personalize services built around their specific operations. NexusTek helps clients reduce their technology spend while increasing efficiency and extracting maximum value from their investment."

NexusTek managed services eliminate the administrative overhead and variable cost associated with cloud and IT environments; customers receive 24/7 monitoring of their IT environments and proactive responses to issues for a fixed monthly fee. With this acquisition, NexusTek inherits a strong presence in the Western United States, extending its reach and ability to create IT solutions that combine storage, virtualization, data protection, and networking technologies from the industry's leading vendors.
NexusTek serves businesses across the country, providing IT solutions and professional recommendations to strengthen the customer's IT infrastructures.
