Thrive Continues Florida Expansion with SouthTech Acquisition

By Luke Bellos

Next-gen managed services provider Thrive announced the acquisition of SouthTech, a Florida-based managed technology solutions provider. Organizations on the west coast of Florida can now access highly advanced IT services to drive digital transformation efforts.

SouthTech holds a solid reputation in Florida’s IT sector, the company’s portfolio is diverse, offering clients expertise and guidance in a number of technical areas including managed services, cloud infrastructure, hosting solutions, backup/disaster recovery services, unified communications, and data security.

Considering the similarities in services, dedication to customers, as well as sharing a passion for transformational support, the decision to acquire SouthTech seems to be a logical move for Thrive’s overall growth.

"For over 25 years, SouthTech's mission is to be a trusted long-term partner to companies by delivering custom technology solutions and being a people-first managed service provider," said Nathan Bailey, CEO/COO of SouthTech. "We're excited to join the Thrive family as their overarching goal aligns with our values and IT service offerings as a technological guide for customer's path to success."

This announcement marks the second purchase for Thrive in 2022, following the acquisition of Preemo, a Miami-based tech service company, earlier this year.

"SouthTech's team provides unique services for complex client technology issues which aligns very closely with our customer-centric approach," said Rob Stephenson, Thrive's CEO. "The Florida market is red-hot, and we wanted to find the best MSP partner on the West Coast to promote the Thrive cybersecurity, Cloud & digital transformation platform into the region. SouthTech's talented group of employees deliver that."
