ANDERSON ZURMUEHLEN TO ACQUIRE ITC TECH COMPANY THIS FALL
Helena, MT (September 5, 2019) – Anderson ZurMuehlen (AZ), a Montana-based certified public accounting and business advisory services firm has announced its intent to purchase Information Technology Core (ITC).
The transaction will expand the firm’s information technology consulting division, Anderson ZurMuehlen Technology Services (AZTS). AZTS offers cloud-hosting through its PwrCloud & PwrCloud for QuickBooks© service, Cyber Security, QuickBooks©software sales and support, IT networking, and general IT consulting services. The acquisition of ITC will expand our service line creating a deeper bench strength and a broader service offering. ITC staff will join the Anderson ZurMuehlen team making AZ one of the largest technology service providers in Montana.
Information Technology Core is headquartered in Helena, Montana with additional locations in Missoula, Montana and Salt Lake City, Utah. ITC is Montana’s largest reseller for HP and Dell equipment and has been in business since 2001. Owners, Ken Keller and Donny Reichert, feel the acquisition by Anderson ZurMuehlen is part of their strategic growth model and a perfect cultural fit.
Owner Donny Reichert says, “The opportunity to sell and grow a business that we’ve worked hard to develop for 18 years came at the right time. We needed to expand our service lines, and Anderson ZurMuehlen already has a great technology team and resources in place. We feel very fortunate that our team is in such good hands.”
AZ, CEO and President, Don Laine, states “AZ is pleased to add to our already robust line-up of information technology services. Our team has worked with ITC for years, and have come to know Ken and Donny very well and we have a great relationship. AZTS is thrilled to have ITC join our team and are excited about the expanded IT options we will be able to offer to both of our clients.”
Anderson ZurMuehlen launched (AZTS) nearly five years ago. The firm has expanded its service lines to more than accounting and CPA services. AZTS currently serves clients throughout the country and internationally. In addition to IT, AZ is also expanding their breadth of service offerings in areas such as back-office outsourcing (Human Resources, Marketing, and Accounting), wealth management, and business advisory. The transaction is expected to close on October 1, 2019.
