Convergint Expands Canadian Presence by Acquiring TACanada
Gains strategic location in Mississauga, Ontario
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Convergint Technologies, a service-based systems integrator, has announced the acquisition of TACanada. Convergint said TACanada provides intelligent buildings through the use of open systems that seamlessly integrate mechanical, electrical, lighting, security, card access, and camera systems.
Founded in 1983, TACanada has been providing organizations in Ontario and across Canada with integrated building solutions for over 33 years. Convergint said this acquisition strengthens its presence in the region with a strategic location in Mississauga, Ontario.
“The acquisition of TACanada is key to reinforcing our customer service capabilities for integrated buildings systems in Ontario and across Canada,” said Dan Moceri, executive chairman and co-founder of Convergint Technologies. “The TACanada team brings us a wealth of experience that adds to our existing and rapidly growing resources in Canada. We are excited to have the entire TACanada team join Convergint Nation.”
This acquisition also expands Convergint’s access to several key vertical markets, especially in the education, utility, data center, commercial office, and retail industries. The company said TACanada’s open systems technology enables comprehensive building control while reducing overall cost.
“Our team is proud to join forces with Convergint,” said David Dawson, president of TACanada. “With our combined resources, together we will expand our customer support capabilities and our growth in Ontario and across Canada.”
TACanada is the sixth acquisition Convergint has completed in 2016, five of which have deepened its capabilities in North America, and one that has extended its footprint in Europe.
