CDI Acquires Leading Salesforce Solutions Provider Candoris
Combined client-focused approaches, strong company cultures cited as key drivers for acquisition
New York – August 31, 2021 – CDI (“Computer Design & Integration LLC”) announced today that it has acquired Candoris, a premier technology solutions provider that maximizes key strategic partnerships with Dell Technologies and Salesforce.
The acquisition of Candoris brings additional, impactful support to CDI’s robust digital offerings, along with new specializations in Salesforce consulting and modern cloud native application development. Operating across the Northeast, Candoris has guided their customers to digital transformation through data center solutions, managed IT services, software engineering, Salesforce consulting, and security penetration and resiliency solutions.
“The team at Candoris could not align to CDI’s vision of being a next generation IT integrator more perfectly,” said Rich Falcone, CEO & President, CDI.
“Unlike our competition, CDI has not rested on our laurels and fallen guilty to rear-view mirror syndrome. We have evolved into a next generation digital integrator focused on staying ahead of the curve – and the team at Candoris is on the exact same page. Like CDI, Candoris has built a robust digital services offering. Their expertise with Salesforce solutions, paired with our elite ServiceNow offerings, brings added value to our mutual clients who time-after-time have asked to bring these complimentary platforms together. It just made sense to partner so that our clients can optimize their application development and transform how they deliver differentiated customer experiences. Additionally, combining two Dell Titanium Partner organizations further deepens our value offerings in the data center. This is a great day for CDI, Candoris and our collection of clients.”
Based in Annville, PA, Candoris was founded in 2011 by brothers Stephan and Lucas Van Der Ploog. Together, the two focused on a purpose of seeking success for others paired with their commitment to philanthropy – leading one of the fastest-growing companies in the nation, while simultaneously donating 10% of all profits toward charitable causes impacting children around the world through medicine, education, and clean water initiatives. CDI is committed to continuing these philanthropic efforts.
“Joining the CDI Team is a perfect partnership at the perfect time,” said Stephan Van Der Ploog, President and Chief Accountability Officer, Candoris. “Overnight our customers gain access to a deeper pool of solutions and our employees gain access to broader career opportunities. It is a win-win. Cultural alignment was table stakes for Candoris when we began this process, and we feel blessed that CDI appreciates and wants to preserve what we have built over the past 10 years.”
The acquisition of Candoris follows CDI’s most recent international expansion with CDI International, and previous acquisitions of Kintyre Solutions, High Availability, P5 Solutions, and Plan B Technologies. In January of 2020, CDI entered into a strategic partnership with private equity firm One Equity Partners (OEP), providing the leading hybrid IT solutions provider the opportunity to grow in to new markets at a feverish pace.
