ALBANY — ADNET Technologies (ADNET), a managed IT services, cloud, and cybersecurity provider with offices in Rocky Hill, Connecticut and Albany, New York, announced it has acquired Tech II Business Services (Tech II), a Saratoga Springs-based managed IT firm. This strategic partnership brings together two teams of IT professionals to create a premier regional technology services company that combines national capabilities with a human-centered approach.
By joining forces, ADNET and Tech II will accelerate the combined company’s growth in New York’s Capital Region and across the Northeast, while also creating opportunities for their employees and clients.
“Our decision to bring Tech II into ADNET Technologies was inspired by the strength of Tech II’s talented team of technologists, technical staff and administrative support members,” said Christopher Luise, CEO of ADNET Technologies. “Attracting, developing and retaining technology talent is the lifeblood of managed IT services providers — enabling innovation, accelerating our growth and ensuring outstanding customer service. With this acquisition, we gain access to new talent and resources that will enable us to serve our current and future clients even better in the Capital Region and beyond.”
ADNET will retain all Tech II employees and will continue to actively recruit additional technology professionals, as it ramps up local growth efforts. Tech II CEO Daniel Bardin will join ADNET as General Manager, allowing him to bring expanded solutions to clients and grow the firm’s regional operations alongside current ADNET General Managers Ronald Gibson and Erin Peterson, Vice President Lynette Maffei and CEO Christopher Luise.
“We’re excited to unite the ADNET and Tech II teams. Together, we’ll bring national capabilities and local market understanding to help our clients implement technology solutions that drive business outcomes,” Bardin said. “Tech II’s clients will continue to be served by the same outstanding IT professionals while securing access to ADNET’s extensive network of resources and partners. Joining ADNET also provides our team with access to new pathways to opportunities for professional development and growth. The potential is immense for us as we bridge together our two firms.”
“This acquisition deepens ADNET’s investment into the Capital Region, a market we see as full of opportunity and talent,” Luise said. “We’re confident that doubling-down on our investment here will continue to drive our growth locally and across the northeast.”
