Computer Design & Integration LLC (CDI LLC) Acquires High Availability, Inc.
Acquisition allows company to accelerate market leadership and grow best-of-breed managed services capabilities and solution portfolio
New York – January 5, 2021 – Computer Design & Integration LLC (“CDI” or “the Company”) announced today that it has acquired High Availability, Inc. (“H.A.”), a premier solution provider and integrator of data center, networking, security, mobility, collaboration and cloud strategy products and services. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 2000 and headquartered in the Philadelphia-metro area, H.A. specializes in solving complex and unique business challenges by architecting and implementing customized, forward-thinking technical solutions. The acquisition enables CDI to bolster its white glove managed services offering and expand its solution portfolio and geographical presence, while also accelerating growth through the addition of complementary services and a deep bench of talented engineers.
“High Availability is an exceptional fit for our business because of their client-first culture,” said Rich Falcone, President, CDI. “Unlike our mutual, smaller competitors who cannot provide the technical depth of our combined portfolios, or our larger competitors who lack the flexibility to change with the pace of digital transformation, CDI and H.A. are synonymous in our mission to deliver the highest quality of services, while also maintaining agility. We are stronger together and look forward to combining our industry expertise to position our clients for long-term success.”
This investment combines two comprehensive suites of services, including hybrid cloud infrastructure, DevOps, intelligent operations, digital workflow, digital workspace, security technologies, managed and professional services. The addition of H.A. meaningfully increases the size of CDI’s managed services segment.
“Our companies share a client-driven mentality, making this a desirable partnership for both organizations,” said Steve Eisenhart, Chief Executive Officer, High Availability, Inc. “Together we’re aligned to bring additive capabilities and scale to our clients, while providing enhanced services and an expanded footprint. We’re excited for this next phase and know that CDI was the clear choice to help us continue the H.A. journey, while respecting the culture and legacy of our business.”
This marks CDI’s third acquisition over the last 12 months, first announcing a strategic partnership with One Equity Partners (“OEP”), followed by the acquisitions of Plan B Technologies, Inc. (“PBT”) and P5 Solutions, Inc. (“P5”).
“OEP partnered with CDI to help the company grow into new markets and strengthen its market-leading multi-cloud offerings through acquisition,” added Charlie Cole, Vice President at One Equity Partners. “We are excited to continue to execute on that strategy by bringing together two like-minded organizations with similar cultures and highly talented leadership teams to expand the companies’ geographic reach and service offerings.”
