Global Convergence Inc. has announced that it has acquired the operating assets of global services and solutions provider NXO Americas, the North American subsidiary of NextiraOne Europe.
NXO Americas Inc. is a startup that provides, designs, installs and maintains communication technologies in the business-to-business market.
Cranbury, NJ-based Global Convergence says the acquisition of NXO, which was previously its partner for providing global services, broadens its IT services offerings for channel partners.
“The addition of NXO Americas’ expertise and infrastructure, particularly around Alcatel-Lucent solutions, is a fitting addition to our robust services portfolio,” said Jim Bradshaw, Chairman and CEO at Global Convergence.
Once the deal is closed, NXO Americas will join GCI’s workforce. Similarly, Global Convergence wants to integrate all NXO’s assets into its portfolio.
The U.S. firm, which recently expanded its operations in the United States with new headquarters, provides end-to-end IT services.
NextiraOne launched its American unit, NXO Americas, in 2011 to reach out to its existing customers in North America. The latest buyout follows the sale of NextiraOne’s European operations to South Africa-based Dimension Data in February this year.
In America, NXO’s aim was to serve global corporations, most of whom were already NextiraOne customers in Europe.
Based in Louisville, Kentucky, NXO Americas is an Alcatel-Lucent “Premier” Business Partner and a registered Cisco business partner.
