MARCO PURCHASES MISSOURI AND ILLINOIS COMPANIES; CONTINUES NATIONAL EXPANSION
Marco, a leading technology services provider in the United States, announced today that it has purchased Data Comm, Inc. located in Missouri and Nexus Office Systems, Inc. in Illinois.
The purchase of Data Comm allows Marco to expand its geographic footprint and provide technical services from six locations throughout the state of Missouri.
Marco entered the Illinois market in October 2014 when they purchased Illinois Valley Business Equipment. With the purchase of Nexus Office Systems in Rockford, the company now has four locations in Illinois. Marco has completed 14 acquisitions over the past three years.
“Our acquisition strategy is to buy similar companies in locations where Marco doesn’t already have a presence,” said Marco CEO Jeff Gau. “We look forward to continuing our commitment to satisfying our new clients and expanding their technology service offerings.”
Since 2010, the company has grown from 350 employees to 1,030 employees and now has 48 locations. Marco serves 30,000 customers throughout the Midwest and nationally.
Data Comm has been in business for 43 years and serves over 4,200 customers. “When you’re a business owner and are considering selling the company you worked your entire life building, you want to make sure the company you sell to will carry on the same or even better value system,” said Joe Birk, president of Data Comm. “I’m totally convinced Marco is that company. They will care for our employees who have become my family, and they have so many resources to do so much more for our customers. It’s a winning situation for everyone involved.”
Nexus has been in business for 34 years and serves over 1,200 customers. “We are proud to be joining the trusted Marco team,” said Bill Rockwood, president of Nexus Office Systems. “They will provide our customers with the outstanding service they have come to expect from us and even more opportunities for our valued employees.”
