IT company acquires Pennsylvania firm
A local IT company has expanded its presence in Steel City.
Grand Rapids-based Service Express, Inc., or SEI, a provider of third-party maintenance, or TPM, services for “mission-critical” data center infrastructure, said yesterday that it has acquired Compu-Fix, a TPM provider based in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh.
SEI plans to use the reputation and capabilities of Compu-Fix to strengthen its presence in the Pittsburgh market and offer its customers “superior” maintenance services.
“Compu-Fix has an extremely strong presence in its markets and is highly regarded in terms of its dedication to customer service and high-quality support, which aligns very well with our mission at SEI,” said Ron Alvesteffer, president and CEO, SEI.
Compu-Fix founder and CEO David Babcock said that SEI and Compu-Fix are “very complementary in terms of their commitment to customer service and breadth of product offerings.”
“We are confident that we will be able to provide immediate incremental value to our customers out of the gate as a result,” Babcock said.
SEI, founded 1986, focuses on IT maintenance services for server and storage equipment.
The company also provides hardware system solutions, sales and upgrades, OS support and data center relocation services.
SEI works with more than 2,500 maintenance customers across 33 offices in 15 states.
Compu-Fix, founded in 1980, provides IT hardware support and managed services for companies in the Pittsburg area.
The company supports more than 300 customers, ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.
