SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Convergint Technologies has acquired West Valley City, Utah-based Alphacorp, a full-service provider of security and fire and life-safety systems. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Alphacorp will expand Convergint’s geographic coverage within Utah, Idaho and Wyoming, according to an announcement. All 53 Alphacorp employees will join Convergint, including a team in Boise, Idaho, that will deepen Convergint’s presence in the local region. Alphacorp brings Convergint strong experience in sophisticated systems integration, especially within the healthcare vertical market, the company states.
