Paladin Technologies acquires Texas integrator
Paladin Technologies Monday announced its acquisition of Lee Technology Group, a systems integrator based in Austin, Tex.
“Texas is the second largest U.S. state by population and GDP so this represents a critical next step in our strategic growth plans. We were impressed with Lee Technology’s commitment to its clients through consistently delivering quality projects and service. This is a great fit between two quickly growing organizations,” commented Ted Reid, president of Paladin Technologies, in a prepared statement.
According to Paladin, all Lee Technology employees will join the Paladin group; the company will henceforth operate as Lee Technology, a Paladin Technologies Company.
“Paladin’s entrepreneurial environment was the perfect next chapter to support our team’s expansion. We were impressed by their ability to pivot for their clients in the enterprise space, while growing a strong culture that offers people long term development. We are thrilled for the collaborative future ahead,” said Lee Technology owners Jesse Guenter and Billy Smith.
Lee Technology specializes in the design and installation of network cabling, fibre, audio visual and sound masking, cell boosters, distributed antenna systems, PoE lighting and ISP network services. The team focuses on design-build solutions for commercial, industrial, and high-density residential buildings.
Last year, Paladin Technologies announced its initial expansion into the U.S. through a merger with installer TekWorks, based in San Diego, Calif.
“We are excited to welcome the Lee Technology team into our group of companies. Each addition to our group is an opportunity for us to learn, innovate and enhance our business model. Uniting our firms allow us to better serve our clients and employees alike,” said William Bourgeois, president of TekWorks.
Earlier this year, Paladin Technologies expanded into the Quebec market as the result of a merger with Groupe Sécurité Robillard.
