Park Place Technologies, the data center third party hardware maintenance company, today announced the acquisition of Curvature, an IT support, products, and services company.
Major player in the Nordics
As a result of the acquisition Park Place Technologies now has two offices in Denmark (Aarhaus and Copenhagen). Before the aquisition the maintanance giant was already firmly established in Finland (Helsinki), where they currently serve over 40 clients. Park Place Technologies is now active in 154 markets and has plans to extend its services to Norway and Sweden in 2021.
Pioneers in the industry
"Park Place and Curvature were both pioneers in this industry," said Chris Adams, Park Place president and CEO. "With the addition of Curvature, our infrastructure support and services offerings are stronger, smarter and further reaching than ever before. In an environment where infrastructures rarely rely on equipment from a single supplier, and where budgets and resources are tighter than ever before, we have created a new tier of TPM (third-party maintenance) that positions us as a more compelling option versus the OEM (original equipment manufacturer)."
"The TPM market has remained strong and continues to see demand given the need for remote services during what's become a protracted pandemic environment," said Rob Brothers, program vice president for IDC's data center and support services. "With this merger, customers can expect expanded coverage in both geography and equipment, as well as access to more parts locations, call centers, and engineering talent."
