November 1, 2017: Sirius Acquires Forsythe Technology
Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc. (Sirius) announced it has acquired Forsythe Technology, Inc. (Forsythe), a leading enterprise IT solutions provider. The acquisition expands Sirius’ solutions and services offerings in security, risk management, and data center transformation.
“Combining forces with Forsythe provides an excellent growth opportunity for Sirius and its employees, while also helping us expand the depth of our solutions and services offerings for our clients—particularly where their data center and security needs are concerned.”
– Joe Mertens, President and CEO, Sirius
In an industry where size often equals strength, Forsythe is the seventh company Sirius has acquired since 2014, joining Brightlight Consulting; Varrow, Inc.; Avnet, Inc.’s digital solution services; Force 3; thinkASG; and Continuum Security Solutions. And although they were former competitors, Sirius and Forsythe also share similar corporate cultures, core values, and a passion for excellence. Both companies have been recognized regularly by partners and industry publications, including being ranked #1 and #5 respectively by MSPmentor on its 2017 list of top managed services providers worldwide.
“Sirius and Forsythe have always had a great deal of respect for one another, and we all know that growth is a necessary part of remaining agile in an industry where things are constantly changing. Sirius shares our passion for providing innovative solutions that help ensure our clients’ success, and I am confident this is the next logical step in our evolution—one that is truly a win-win for both companies, as well as our clients and our partners.”
– Bill Brennan, President and CEO, Forsythe
Forsythe is a leading enterprise IT company, providing advisory services, security, hosting and technology solutions for FORTUNE 1000 organizations.
Sirius has grown to be one of the largest solutions integrators in the U.S., with annual gross revenues of approximately $2.2 billion. That growth has been achieved by investing in areas that help it better meet the needs of its clients, and fueled by an M&A strategy focused on building a depth of solutions and services offerings that are most important to the success of its clients.
Forsythe will initially operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sirius.
