AT-NET SERVICES Acquires CompuDoctor
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 1, 2009
Charlotte-Based AT-NET Purchases with Local IT Company
CHARLOTTE – The purchase of CompuDoctor, an information technology company, based in Charlotte represents a growth step for AT-NET Services, Inc. Jeffrey King, president of AT-NET, announced a merger with CompuDoctor, Inc., a 10-year-old IT firm located on Independence Blvd. “CompuDoctor is very similar to us,” King said, “but they have not been able to offer our full spectrum of services to their clients. By merging with CompuDoctor, we will be able to further enhance the delivery of customer focused technology solutions to our SMB (small medium business) clients.” Wagoner will remain with AT-NET as Customer Assistance Center Supervisor. Neither King nor Rick Wagoner disclosed financial terms of the transaction that closed on January 26.
AT-NET is adding fully staffed help desk services that are available around the clock. Historically, AT-NET operated an “On-Call” model for engineering support. “The addition of CompuDoctor engineers will add certified staff with vast experience and focus on quality customer service”, said King.
With the acquisition, AT-NET operates offices and data centers in the Greater Charlotte area and Raleigh, as well as Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. It has over 600 clients, primarily in the United States, China and Italy.
AT-NET is a leading network systems integrator that builds, designs and maintains networks for the SMB market. The company specializes in data, unified communications, video, security products and services that enable companies to overcome business challenges. AT-NET also maintains an ISP division to service its customer’s Internet and Disaster Recovery needs.
Founded in 1998, AT-NET will top more than $8 million in revenue in 2009.
