The acquisition further expands ABCOMRENTS infrastructure nationally, bringing unique IT & Digital Signage Solutions to the South Central Region.
CHICAGO, IL – ABCOMRENTS (or the “Company”) has acquired SMART Technology Rentals (“Smart Technology”) in a strategic move that is expected to support the Company’s national growth initiatives into the Texas market. The acquisition combines two businesses with complementary vision, company culture, services, and capabilities.
Since 1994, Smart Technology has specialized in computer & IT rentals with full service locations throughout Texas including Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. Smart Technology has built a reputation of high quality service supporting local clients along with rental partners traveling into Texas.
“We are extremely excited to bring the Smart Technology team under the ABCOMRENTS brand. Their knowledge of the local market, experience in the industry, and infrastructure throughout Texas will create demonstrable value to our combined customers and partners. Many of our clients have been asking us to open in Dallas; with the Smart Technology acquisition, we not only have an office in Dallas but now can easily cover the entire State of Texas” said Sonny Goyal, Managing Director of ABCOMRENTS (www.abcomrents.com).
ABCOMRENTS’ new fulfillment centers in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio will focus primarily on IT and Digital Signage Solutions. The centers will be fully stocked with IT solutions, 2.6MM and 3.9MM LED Tiles, NEC Ultra Narrow Video Wall Displays, Commercial Grade LED Displays, as well as the latest in Interactive Digital Signage. ABCOMRENTS will have full inventory and fulfillment capabilities to support our client’s ongoing demand for these technology solutions in the local Texas markets and surrounding states.
ABCOMRENTS has maintained a clear focus on digital signage and interactive solutions, bringing every-day technology as well as the technology of tomorrow to the rental industry. Smart Technology’s focus has been on servicing the local Texas markets with IT services. Combining the ABCOMRENTS product offerings with Smart Technology infrastructure will bring an entirely new offering to the local Texas markets.
“This is our second acquisition in the last 24 months. We have learned how to integrate companies within our industry efficiently and build the process and infrastructure to scale. We now have the immediate capabilities and an experienced team in place in three additional markets,” said Goyal.
“I am confident that under the leadership team of ABCOMRENTS, Smart Technology will continue to thrive with new service and product offerings we have been waiting for. The combined entity is a perfect fit, benefitting both our employees and our customers. Our clients now have access to solutions that were never a part of our product line and the entire Smart Technology team is on board to maintain business as usual,” said Robert Lowry, President of Smart Technology.
