reliable and intelligent IT services to our customers wherever they
may be located. Our roots in the U.S. were laid in Michigan
nearly 15 years ago and the Netarx acquisition continues our growth
in the Michigan market while blending important skill sets and
methodologies that enhance our service offering across all of
Logicalis’ geographies,” said Terry Flood, president and CEO of
Logicalis, Inc. “Netarx brings nearly 170 technical and

culmination of our business development,” said Duane Tursi,
Principal of Netarx. “The combination of Logicalis’
international presence, financial strength, longevity and technical
expertise are key ingredients of our decision to become part of the
Logicalis family. Logicalis’ customer-focused strategy,
commitment to their employees and remarkably similar corporate
culture inspire tremendous excitement about our future together,”
“Netarx’s geographic alignment, local brand
recognition, proven track record and IT services in collaboration,
data center and managed services, will bring a wealth of IT
expertise to the Logicalis team,” said Sandy Kronenberg, Principal
of Netarx. “Together we will accelerate growth, share best
practices, and enrich our combined organizations’ strengths
creating an enterprise in which the combined sum total is much
greater than our individual contributions,” added Kronenberg.
