BURLINGTON, MA., November 17, 2017 – Focus Technology Solutions (Focus), a leading provider of complete business technology solutions, professional services and managed IT services, announced that they have acquired NSK Inc. (NSK), an information technology consulting firm specializing in managed services. As Focus continues to invest and evolve parallel to the industry, the company is committed to serving the increasing demand from customers. The managed IT services market, across all industries and verticals, is rapidly increasing at 42% compounded annual growth rate*. Companies are increasingly looking to third party partners for assistance with operations, moving from a reactive to a proactive IT service delivery model. Focus has been at the forefront of providing managed IT services, including managed backup, monitoring, maintenance and support. The acquisition of NSK generates accelerated growth for this area of our business and will provide enhanced value to customers.
“We are executing on our growth strategy which is helping our customers navigate the ever changing and complex IT environment we are in today,” said Doug Alexander CEO at Focus Technology Solutions. “Managed IT Services is the fastest growing area of our business and customers are clearly seeing the value. We have a tremendous amount of momentum in the region right now and we will continue to look for ways to capitalize on this to help us expand. With the announcement of the acquisition, we are excited about the continued growth of Focus and the tremendous value that NSK brings to our existing customers.”
“At NSK, we are proud to have the most comprehensive portfolio of fully outsourced IT services and are excited to become part of the Focus family. With Focus’s commitment to delivering leading edge technology solutions combined with their deep technical expertise, we believe we can significantly increase our value to customers together. We are excited about being able to offer a growing array of services now to our customers and look forward to the future with Focus.” Said Tim Lasonde, President at NSK.
Tim Lasonde will join Doug Alexander and the rest of the executive management team at Focus; leading the managed services division. Moving forward, Focus and NSK will become one team, seamlessly emerging as a leading provider of complete business technology solutions and services. With deep technology and engineering expertise, Focus specializes in Datacenter Infrastructure, Data Protection, Advanced Microsoft Solutions, Converged Infrastructure, Cloud and Automation, Networking, CyberSecurity and Professional Services. Earlier this year, Focus announced the addition of several industry-leading experts to the team further enhancing the value to customers.
Over the coming months, the combined companies will begin the integration process, operating under the name Focus Technology Solutions. The company is headquartered in Burlington, MA with offices in both Boston, MA and Nashua, NH.
