Internet and Telephone Acquires NECOM Solutions

Internet and Telephone LLC., a Massachusetts-based company provider of managed IT devices, VoIP telephone systems and voice and data services, recently acquired NECOM Solutions, making it Internet and Telephone's sixth purchase of a technology company within the New England region.

Through the acquisition, both companies will be able to offer more products, in addition to Internet and Telephone increasing its employee base with the company keeping all full-time NECOM personnel.

"Internet & Telephone and NECOM together will offer customers industry-leading managed IT services," Paul Cissel, co-founder and CEO of Internet and Telephone, said in a statement. "Both companies have years of network excellence, customized solutions and outstanding customer support. We will now offer more services, more technology solutions and more options with the same high levels of performance, reliability and support that our customers have come to expect from us."

The merging of the companies will be beneficial for all companies involved, according to Howard J. Britt, Jr., the founder, president and CEO of NECOM who will be responsible for assisting current NECOM customers with sales and services.

"This combination is highly complementary," Britt said in a statement. "The broad reach of our combined technology, the years of expertise of our dedicated employees and our shared commitment to exemplary service will establish Internet & Telephone as the premier Managed Service Provider in Massachusetts."

David Baker, a technology expert and investment officer at North American Management Company, echoed the same sentiment.

"This acquisition should be a win-win for all involved," Baker said in a statement. "The combined company is well positioned for growth and meeting the ever-increasing need for technology solutions, high-touch customer service and high-performance bandwidth."

NECOM Solution joins Internet and Telephone's five other acquired New England-based companies, which include Entegra Solution, Netway Internet, Russet Communications, TTLC Wireless and Airnet Connect.
