The acquisition will accelerate UCG’s growth in the Midwest as it continues its transition and expansion from a regional integrator into a full-service provider of backup, disaster recovery (DR), enterprise applications and security training with a focus on the IBM POWER8 Systems platform. UCG now has customers in 31 states, Canada, Caribbean and Europe.
We have long been impressed by E-Safe’s (Premier) strength in the Pittsburgh market for POWER8 solutions. Frankly, they owned the Pittsburgh market. This acquisition not only opens the door to hundreds of accounts, but gives those customers access to a broader range of software and services. It’s a win for UCG, a win for E-safe and a win for their customers.
E-Safe’s customer base includes more than 250 companies in the greater Pittsburgh market and four other states in the Great Lakes area.
