Cloud services provider The Aldridge Company announced on Thursday it has acquired web hosting provider Serenity Systems, which marks its third acquisition of 2012. The financial terms of the agreement will not be disclosed in the press release.
The acquisition will complement Aldridge’s portfolio of cloud services, as Serenity provides managed services, network integration and performance improvement to manufacturing, distribution, construction and services firms throughout the United States.
“This strategic acquisition strengthens The Aldridge Company’s position as a leading IT services provider capable of delivering powerful and effective IT services to organizations of all sizes,” said Patrick Wiley, chief operating officer with The Aldridge Company. “By continuing to aggressively expand the depth and breadth of The Aldridge Company’s services and expertise, we have further underscored the firm’s commitment to the dynamic and growing IT services market.”
In April, The Aldridge Company acquired the IT Managed Services practice of Extreme Technologies, and in January, the company absorbed the IT services of Rafte & Company into its managed services practice.
It is this aggressive growth strategy that has allowed The Aldridge Company to significantly expand its staff and grow out its customer base.
With the acquisition, Serenity Systems founder and CEO Mark Leary will join The Aldridge Company’s management team as vice president with other key executives, including team lead/systems administrator Lisa Hill.
The Aldridge Company is a consultant and integrator of IT and cloud computing solutions, in which it provides technology and work process evaluations, audits of security and disaster recovery readiness, and hosting services such as cloud hosting, colocation and dedicated servers.
