McLane Intelligent Solutions Acquires AgniTEK’s IT Managed Services Business

Bryan, TX, January 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- McLane Intelligent Solutions (MIS), an information technology company located in Temple, Texas, is pleased to announce the acquisition of AgniTEK’s IT Managed Services business unit. AgniTEK is a technology resource company headquartered in Bryan/College Station, Texas. The acquisition represents a significant growth for both companies in 2013.

“We are excited about the expansion of MIS,” said McLane Intelligent Solutions President Skip Carruth. “Obtaining AgniTEK’s managed IT support services will launch MIS into a larger geographical market, creating synergies to meet the ever-increasing needs of our customers.”

MIS will increase its business leverage and services by implementing AgniTEK’s best practices into its own operations. MIS will in return add instant growth, skills, and stability to the structure of AgniTEK.

“Both MIS and AgniTEK will be enhanced through leadership expertise and customer growth,” Carruth said. “Bryan/College Station, Texas is one of the top growth opportunity areas in the U.S. over the next 10 years and we are eager to expand into this region.”

MIS was founded in 1999 as JC Technology Group (JCTG), a Temple, Texas, IT service group. JCTG was acquired by Drayton McLane Jr. in the summer of 2004 and named McLane Intelligent Solutions. Drayton McLane Jr. is the owner and founder of McLane Group, a holding company comprised of MIS and five other companies.

“We are very excited about what has been accomplished,” McLane said. “MIS has been in business for nine years and we have an excellent staff that provides technology expertise to advance the businesses of our customers. The acquisition of AgniTEK enriches MIS with more knowledgeable leaders in the IT industry.”

AgniTEK was founded in 1995 as CW Computer Services, providing hardware sales and repair in the dorms of Texas A&M University. AgniTEK’s owners, Antonio Ortiz and David Ohendalski, graduates of Texas A&M, joined the company in 1999 when the company opened its first commercial location.

“AgniTEK has empowered our clients’ information technology with our focus on personalized service and industry best practices. Our expansion with McLane will join our two Texas companies with strong client centric values,” said Antonio Ortiz, now Director – B/CS for McLane Intelligent Solutions. “We are delighted to keep our team together and offer the best services and solutions in the industry.”

“It’s an exciting day for everyone involved. As our industry has matured, there has been a lot of consolidation,” said David Ohendalski, the former President of AgniTEK, LLC and now President of the new web services group. “This brings new opportunities for us to hone our focus. Our staff will have additional opportunities to grow internally. Plus our current and future clients will now have an even deeper support bench. All current clients will continue to hear and see the same great staff they’ve loved for years.”

The acquiring of AgniTEK’s IT Managed Services by MIS was finalized on December 31, 2012. The location of the IT Managed Services business unit will remain in Bryan/College Station, under the name of McLane Intelligent Solutions. For more information please contact Skip Carruth at 254-791-8300.
