Gordon Flesch Company Acquires Managed Services Provider
Earlier this month, the Gordon Flesch Company (GFC) announced that it’s agreed to acquire Information Technology Professionals (ITP) for an undisclosed sum.
ITP is a managed service provider (MSP) based in Madison, Wisconsin, with locations in the Appleton and Milwaukee area. With nearly 20 years of experience, ITP provides managed IT service and strategy for small to mid-size businesses.
With this acquisition, the GFConsulting Group says it will become “one of the largest and most capable technology solutions providers in Wisconsin and the upper Midwest, offering services including cloud, cybersecurity and Managed IT.”
The firm also notes that MSPs are increasingly important in the complex and technology-driven business world, with the market projected to hit $296.38 billion globally by 2023. With the combined resources of GFC’s GFConsulting Group and IT Pros’ team, the Gordon Flesch Company will serve more than over 400 customers and employ 70 MSP staff in locations across the Midwest.
Both GFC and IT Pros feature prominently on the CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list, which recognizes the largest and most innovative North American managed services companies. As one of the nation’s largest independent office equipment providers, GFC launched the GFConsulting Group in 2015 to expand its ability to help businesses solve challenging problems. Its capabilities include Managed IT, cybersecurity, cloud computing services, Virtual CIO (vCIO) and consulting services, Enterprise Content Management (ECM), and A.I. Solutions.
“IT Pros is one of the premier MSPs in Wisconsin and has a great reputation for delivering strong technical support and solutions to the customers they serve,” says Patrick Flesch, President of the Gordon Flesch Company. “Their strong technical team and operational maturity will be a great addition to the current team that GFConsulting has built over the years. This acquisition underscores GFC’s commitment to be the leading provider of technology solutions in the markets we serve.”
Founded in 2003 and currently owned by Paul Hager, ITP has grown to 40 employees, serving more than 200 clients in Wisconsin.
The Gordon Flesch Company is one of the largest family-owned providers of office technology solutions in the nation. Family-owned since 1956, the Gordon Flesch Company employs more than 600 people throughout 26 offices in the Midwest, with their corporate office in Madison, Wisconsin. They provide software and hardware, technical expertise, customer service, and in-house financial services.
