Blue Star and MapleTronics have announced today the merger of their business operations to offer a unified, collaborative approach to technology services. MapleTronics will acquire the Blue Star assets, people and client agreements and the merged business will operate under the MapleTronics brand.
Blue Star, founded in 2004, partners with clients to provide managed IT services offering help desk support, network administration, and technical consulting. Leveraging carefully selected partnerships with Dell, SonicWall, Ruckus, and Microsoft gives Blue Star the flexibility to tailor a solution for the specific needs of client businesses and provides them with predictable results.
“Blue Star offers a great portfolio of services and brings relatable core values and team culture. Their security services and expertise will be a great enhancement for MapleTronics to expand its service offerings and talent,” explains Wes Herschberger, founder and CEO of MapleTronics. “Growth allows for more resources to improve our services for our clients. The merger and acquisition of Blue Star supports the MapleTronics mission to enhance our client’s experiences while using technology, through our combined service offerings in security, optimization, business collaboration and more.”
Jon Morningstar, co-founder and President of Blue Star, also commented “MapleTronics’s acquisition of Blue Star provides a bigger growth opportunity for both our businesses through an expanded service offering for our clients. There are several service delivery initiatives that we have been working on that will help drive us forward. We have the opportunity to build something great together. As organizations look to improve and increase their technology solutions, we will be best positioned to provide the most optimized service for their specific needs.” Morningstar will join MapleTronics as VP of Innovation.
The expanded business will serve 169+ healthcare, manufacturing, not-for-profits and other professional service organizations across the USA and will manage 6,000+ servers and workstation endpoints.
