Managed service and security service provider Advantage has bought Nspire Technologies, opening a beachhead into the Wellington market.
Advantage managing director Brad Pearpoint said the deal, which closes at the end of November, was all about growth, both through increased geographical reach and a broader the range of services both could offer customers.
Advantage has traded from Palmerston North for over thirty years and began targeting Auckland three and a half years ago. However, it also wanted to grow its business in the capital.
The question was whether to do that organically or through acquisition. Through a “happy coincidence”, Nspire’s owners were looking to move on, Pearpoint told Reseller News.
“There are some huge synergies between the way our two businesses operate,” he said.
