Convergint Technologies, a provider of service-based systems integration, announced the acquisition of TACanada. TACanada creates intelligent buildings using open systems that integrate seamlessly, including electrical, mechanical, lighting, security, card access and camera systems. 
Founded in 1983, TACanada has been providing organizations in Ontario and across Canada with integrated building solutions for more than 33 years. This acquisition strengthens Convergint’s presence in the region with a strategic location in Mississauga, Ontario, according to a press release from Convergint. The Convergint and TACanada team will be on site at the 68th annual Operations, Maintenance and Construction Workshop in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on July 6 and 7 of 2016. 
“The acquisition of TACanada is key to reinforcing our customer service capabilities for integrated buildings systems in Ontario and across Canada,” said Dan Moceri, executive chairman and co-founder of Convergint Technologies. “The TACanada team brings us a wealth of experience that adds to our existing and rapidly growing resources in Canada. We are excited to have the entire TACanada team join Convergint Nation.” 
This acquisition also expands Convergint’s access to several key vertical markets, especially in the education, utility, data center, commercial office and retail industries. To ensure that customers get the utmost value from their properties, TACanada’s open systems’ use of non-proprietary technology enables complete control of building management while reducing overall cost.
“Our team is proud to join forces with Convergint,” said David Dawson, president of TACanada. “With our combined resources, together we will expand our customer support capabilities and our growth in Ontario and across Canada.” 
Amplifying the reach and expertise of Convergint, TACanada is the sixth acquisition Convergint has completed thus far in 2016. Convergint continues its global expansion both organically and through acquisitions, five of which have deepened its capabilities in North America, and one that has extended its footprint in Europe.
