Wheeling-based information technology consulting firm HGO Technology on Monday announced a merger with ContactPointe, an IT consulting firm operating in Charleston and Pittsburgh, Pa.
As part of the merger, ContactPointe will operate as a unit within HGO Technology.
Officials said the merger will boost the combined company's ability to serve clients and deepen the level of technical expertise it can provide.
"Our vision is to be a world-class strategic and tactical IT consulting business serving clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic and midwestern markets," said HGO president Steve Agnoli. "The combination of HGO and ContactPointe is another step forward in fulfilling this vision."
"The combination not only expands our technical capabilities but improves our overall operations," ContactPointe chief technology officer Steve Smith said.
Founded in 1991, ContactPointe specialized in advising small and medium-sized businesses with their technology investments.
HGO Technology was founded in 1986 and provides information technology services and infrastructure consulting.
This is the second merger HGO has announced in recent months. In February, the company announced a merger with website and mobile development firm Terradon Communications Group of Charleston.
