SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CXtec today announced the acquisition of Atlantix Global Systems, a leading reseller of new, reconfigured and refurbished IT equipment located in Norcross, Georgia. As a result of the transaction, CXtec becomes the leading secondary market hardware supplier with extensive refurbishment, sourcing, distribution and maintenance service capabilities.
"We believe this acquisition creates an industry-leading and dynamic organization that places us in a position to maximize the market," said Peter Belyea, Chief Executive Officer of CXtec. "As a full-service IT lifecycle management company we will strengthen the value we bring to our customers. The dedication and collective talent of our teams, reputations, and systems will create tremendous opportunities for both organic and inorganic growth."
