StraTech is a profitable business, and has been growing about 10 percent to 15 percent a year, Datalink’s Lidsky said. However, that was not always the case. The company was founded in 2007 with the merger of Salt Lake City-based Consonus and Cary, N.C.-based Strategic Technologies, both of which were owned by holding companies.
Strategic Technologies, which used to have a strong Sun Microsystems hardware focus but in the past faced financial issues, was owned by holding firm Midas Medici Group Holdings.
"StraTech has always been a very credible competitor to us in the Southeast and Northeast," he said. "Over the past few years, it has built a strong, profitable business, which is the one we acquired."
With the acquisition, Datalink is getting StraTech's entire solutions, sales engineering and customer support personnel, as well as a number of the company's senior leadership, Lidsky said. However, since the acquisition is an asset purchase, personnel involved in general administration including in the finance, legal and IT areas, are staying with Midas Medici, he said.
Looking forward, Lidsky said Datalink is looking to Texas and the Ohio Valley for future expansion.
