Synoptek LLC has announced it has acquired EarthLink’s IT Services business. This transaction continues to fuel Synoptek as one of the fastest growing IT managed services providers (MSPs) in the US. With a strengthened IT services portfolio based on this acquisition, both Synoptek and EarthLink customers will be better served with more focused technology solutions along with geographic diversity.

“We are enthusiastic about the Synoptek purchase of the EarthLink IT Services business,” said Tim Britt, CEO for Synoptek. “This acquisition helps us continue our mission to become the best independent IT managed services provider in the market, and it supplements our ability to provide expert IT leadership and support services to our customers.”

The addition of this business will increase Synoptek’s comprehensive portfolio of IT Managed Services for enterprise organizations. EarthLink’s IT Services organization will expand the skillsets, 24/7 coverage, and strategic IT sourced solutions for their joint customers. Significant synergies exist between both organizations’ core services offered throughout the US and Europe: 24/7 IT management of customer IT systems, managed cloud solutions, managed security, end user support, and IT advisory/consulting solutions. This acquisition expands Synoptek’s presence across the eastern U.S. and complements their national data center infrastructure. More important is the alignment of cultures among both organizations to service the customer first and create a superior experience for them.

This acquisition of EarthLink’s IT services business will positively impact Synoptek’s 400+ active worldwide customers as well as the 1,700 IT Services customers they are acquiring from EarthLink. EarthLink will continue its core business of differentiated managed and network services for enhanced primary data and voice services, and carrier grade transport solutions.

“We are excited to announce this transaction with a company that has a proven track record of success in the IT services space,” said Joe Eazor, chief executive officer and president of EarthLink. “We have a great IT services team, and they are one of the key reasons Synoptek was interested in acquiring these assets. We completed the transaction knowing they have a vibrant future with Synoptek.”
