Strategic Acquisitions

NACR CEO John F. Lyons Shares Strategy for Growth

Acquisitions have been an important part of NACR’s evolution, and they allow us to enhance the value that we offer customers.


The 2006 acquisition of Combest Inc. added expertise in design, deployment, and managing telephony, data networking, and convergence solutions to our portfolio. It also expanded our monitoring and managed services capabilities, including a state-of-the art network operations center (NOC) in Norcross, Georgia.


Acquiring Empire Technologies in 2009 significantly expanded our sales presence in the northeastern United States. It also allowed us to provide former Empire customers with local NACR coverage in the rest of the U.S. The acquisition added even more Nortel maintenance expertise and carrier services to our multivendor services portfolio. Integrating Empire’s New Jersey NOC increased our capacity to monitor systems and deliver other managed services. Today, our two NOCs support millions of ports.


ConvergeOne acquisitions enable NACR to leverage the strengths of other ConvergeOne companies, offering customers technical expertise and strategically aligned support across an ever-growing array of integrated solutions from one trusted advisor.
