Convergint Technologies Acquires Altel to Expand North American Reach
Based in the Montreal area, Altel expands Convergint’s presence in the province of Quebec, with additional coverage via offices in Toronto and Calgary.
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Convergint Technologies has acquired Altel, a systems integration firm headquartered in the Montreal area, for undisclosed terms.
With almost 30 years of experience, Altel develops sophisticated, intelligent electronic security solutions for customers across many vertical markets, according to an announcement.
“Altel brings us strong integration capabilities and deeply experienced colleagues,” says Ken Lochiatto, CEO of Convergint Technologies. “They will further enhance our reach and service offering, enabling us to continue on our goal of being our customers’ best service provider. We are excited to welcome the Altel team into the Convergint Technologies family.”
Altel expands Convergint’s presence in the province of Quebec, and it also brings additional coverage via offices in Toronto and Calgary. Founded in 1989 by Ricky Dumas, Jacques Leclair and Yves Paquin, Altel has since built a strong, diversified customer base across the government, pharmaceutical, financial and educational markets.
All 54 Altel employees have joined Convergint and brought the company their expertise in creating high-end, custom electronic security solutions, the announcement states.
“Joining Convergint presents many new growth opportunities for Altel and its colleagues,” says Dumas, president of Altel. “Altel and Convergint are both very passionate about the values we believe in, with service to our customers being paramount. Combining our forces with Convergint will enable us to expand our offerings to our customers and deepen our service capabilities.”
Convergint, based here, provides comprehensive security integration and fire/life-safety services in more than 80 locations across four continents. With almost 20 acquisitions since 2016, the company has strategically grown its service footprint in the United States, Canada and Europe by acquiring regional market leaders. Founded in 2002, the integrator has grown to employ more than 3,400 colleagues as the business continues to expand its security offerings and geographic footprint.
Central to this growth is Convergint’s strong corporate culture, which focuses on providing best-in-class service to meet its customers’ unique security needs, according to the announcement.
