SAN DIEGO, Cali. – Systems integrator Paladin Technologies Inc. has announced the commencement of its expansion into the US market through the recent merger with installer TekWorks Inc., headquartered in San Diego.
Effective Jan. 1, 2019, both organizations will work collaboratively to provide technology integration solutions, including design-build projects for security systems, audio visual, network cabling, data centers and network services.
Ted Reid, president of Paladin Technologies, said in a prepared statement, “I am excited to be able to work with the 200+ fantastic people of TekWorks in pursuing new opportunities and cross-pollinating best practices between the companies. TekWorks has had tremendous success in the market by being innovative in adopting proven, effective technologies and for having a laser-like focus on delivering on its promises. This transaction is about building our US platform and we are delighted that all TekWorks team members are committed to our merger.”
William Bourgeois, president of TekWorks, added, “As we reviewed our strategic options, it was clear that merging with Paladin Technologies was the right fit not only for our people, but also our clients. With over 13,000 employees in the Paladin group of companies, this is an entrepreneurial organization that focuses on promotion from within through people development programs. As a private entity, we have benefitted from being able to make long term investments for continuous improvement in our processes and this will no doubt continue after the merger with Paladin Technologies. This move is all about quality and building on our capability to service our clients even better.”
TekWorks will continue to operate as is under the TekWorks brand as a Paladin Technologies company. All existing office locations, phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same as TekWorks integrates with the Paladin group of companies.
