Managed technology solutions provider Meriplex is continuing its buying spree with another MSP. This time it’s acquiring Alabama-based managed service provider F1 Solutions.

A veteran-owned company, F1 Solutions has been a managed security and IT provider for over 25 years. It has primarily provided services to defense contractors and businesses throughout Northern Alabama. F1 supports their clients by vastly improving their security posture. They become customers’ trusted consultant on all things IT, Meriplex said. F1 understands government compliance regulations and the CMMC (cybersecurity maturity model certification) program.

“We are excited to welcome F1 Solutions to the Meriplex organization as they will complement our growing cybersecurity and operational teams while adding vertical expertise around government compliance,” Henley said. “F1 has a great reputation of delivering service excellence to their clients in the region, which is something that Meriplex values very highly as we look to become the leading MSP in the nation that prioritizes an exceptional customer experience.”

IT, Security and Compliance

Jennifer VanderWier is president of F1 Solutions.

“We built F1 Solutions to be the managed services provider that our clients could always rely on for trusted expertise in IT, security and compliance,” VanderWier said. “With the support of Meriplex, we are excited at the opportunity to provide our clients with expand technology offerings paired with the same excellent support they are accustomed to.”
