Those who predicted 2017 would follow the lead of 2016 by being filled with acquisitions have already found themselves to be correct, with several deals on the books within the first 10 days of the new year.
The action continued with SVT adding fellow Michigan firm MKE to the fold, a move that “expands the solutions and services to customers in Michigan and the surrounding region,” according to an SVT press release announcing the deal.
“We’re taking a careful but deliberate approach in growing our company to deliver the best services and solutions to our customers,” says SVT president and CEO Josh Shanahan in the announcement. “This acquisition provides us additional reach in western Michigan but also enhances our expertise in critical communications and security for health care, education, institutional and manufacturing customers.”
MKE, which will remain in its Kalamazoo, Mich., location, has been in business since 1975, providing solutions and services in southwest Michigan and northern Indiana. The deal was official Jan. 1, the same day when AVI-SPL’s acquisition of VideoLink took effect.
