Mergers and acquisitions

Converge Technology Solutions, the software-enabled IT and cloud solutions provider, is buying PDS Holding Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. This includes Paragon Development Systems (PDS), a Wisconsin-based company focused on fueling digital transformation. Converge acquired PDS from Mason Wells, a private equity firm based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

PDS offers solutions ranging from cloud and security to servers and infrastructure to virtualized work environments and remote work. PDS serves clients in three distinct markets: health care, public sector and corporate. The company said it advises and assists with unique information technology needs in upgrading and modernizing core business technology infrastructure. 

Converge isn’t saying how much it’s shelling out for PDS.

Expansion Across Midwest

Shaun Maine is CEO of Converge Technology Solutions.

This includes our clients in this sector across North America. Additionally, PDS’ presence in the central region will give us more scale across Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota. This will help us continue to meet the requirements of our clients in these areas.”
