ACP CreativIT/Camera Corner Connecting Point Merger
ACP CreativIT/Camera Corner Connecting Point, which has offices in Illinois and Wisconsin, is a technology solutions provider. The company has merged with Citon Computer Corporation and its sister companies, NetTel, NetGuard and TLX Communications. Together, the businesses will have more than 130 years of founder/family ownership heritage. They will have more than $3.5 billion of IT products and solutions delivered since inception. Also, the companies boast annual revenue of $300 million and nearly 300 employees, they said.
Steven Dastoor will continue as Citon’s CEO and join the combined company’s board of directors.
“We have been approached by many potential partners over the years, but only this finally felt right to us,” Dastoor said. “We are excited about the benefits of scale to our customers and employees, yet the opportunity to preserve and build upon our culture and community footprint.”
Citon builds upon ACP and CCCP’s strategy of continuing to grow through acquisitions of companies sharing a common platform. They also plan to preserve the local customer, employee and community roots that have fueled Citon’s success, the company said.
All Citon and sister company employees will stay on as part of the merger, with plans to hire more employees in all locations.
