CHICAGO – (July 13, 2021) – Netrix, LLC, a leading provider of managed and professional IT services, with a core focus on cloud, security, collaboration, information technology service management (ITSM) and application development solutions, today announced the acquisition of the Managed IT Services business unit of Contegix, LLC. The acquisition significantly expands Netrix’s market presence in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, adds substantial scale to its ITSM service desk and cloud managed services capabilities and brings together two teams of high-performing and talented employees supporting similar customer bases.
“I’m very excited to welcome our new team members and customers to the Netrix family. Together, we have combined two best-in-class solution providers with complementary service offerings, technology expertise and geographic footprints,” said Rob Dang, CEO of Netrix. “This acquisition greatly expands Netrix’s managed services offerings and cloud capabilities and enhances our market position as the go-to provider for small and midsize enterprise customers in need of sophisticated IT solutions.”

Netrix intends to make additional investments in sales, marketing, technical talent and advanced product offerings as it continues its growth strategy, with the goal of becoming the premier IT and cloud solution provider to small and midsize enterprise customers nationwide.
“The acquisition of the Managed IT Services business unit from Contegix allows us to better support customers coast-to-coast while adding additional scale and sophistication to our managed and cloud services offerings.
