CLIFTON, N.J. and NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 4, 2018 -- NuMSP, a growing national managed service provider offering managed IT and cybersecurity solutions, today announced its expansion in the Louisiana SMB IT services market with the acquisition of New Orleans-based Ultimate Technical Solutions, Inc. ("UTSI"), a full-service managed service provider (MSP) offering comprehensive IT solutions for small and mid-sized businesses.
"This milestone is the next chapter in our 36-year history," said David St. Etienne, founder and President of UTSI. "With NuMSP's vision for a national managed service platform, we will be better positioned to deliver world-class services and solutions and to offer employees new avenues for career growth."
"David and the UTSI team have built a leading IT services platform and are positioned for expansion in a large and underserved market," said Jim Griffith, CEO of NuMSP. "We are excited to work with the UTSI team to lead the business into its next phase. This acquisition further solidifies our commitment to becoming a trusted IT partner for small and midsize businesses in Louisiana."
This acquisition, the sixth for NuMSP, continues its buildout of a national managed service platform targeted to the small and midsize business (SMB) market. SMB organizations face rapid advances in technology, making it increasingly difficult for smaller businesses to stay current and realize the full ROI on their IT investments. To meet this challenge, NuMSP is building a nationwide company with the scale and resources to deliver advanced IT services to SMBs that will rival incumbent solutions at Fortune 500 companies.
The transaction closed on December 3, 2018.
After years of providing IT services and security solutions for small and midsize (SMB) businesses across several states, our leadership team decided to offer premium solutions in every state in the U.S. The SMB market has always provided most of the job and economic growth in the United States but this segment's ability to access and leverage technology has always been limited to in-house research capabilities and expertise, or the reliance on a trusted IT advisor, a role made more difficult given the advances in technology and proliferation of security threats. In response to these dual trends, NuMSP is creating a nationwide company with the scale and resources to deliver advanced IT services and security solutions that will rival the solutions leveraged by Fortune 500 companies. We are currently looking to enter new geographic areas and acquire MSPs in our existing geographic markets.
