INDIANAPOLIS, April 10, 2017 — Today, GadellNet Technology Solutions, a top Managed Service Provider in the Midwest, and Blue Key Technology, a local technology provider, have announced that they have signed a merger agreement, under which Blue Key will merge into GadellNet. Both GadellNet and Blue Key had independently implemented similar technologies for their customers, but more importantly, both have aligned ideologies: a strong commitment to core values and customer service. This acquisition brings an additional $350,000 to GadellNet’s $9M projected annual revenue for the year.
“I am excited to welcome Blue Key’s employees and customers to GadellNet,” said Nick Smarrelli, CEO of GadellNet. “We have been growing rapidly over the last 6 years, and this acquisition positions us to grow even more on the north side of Indianapolis. Blue Key’s owners are extremely knowledgeable about technologies we are already using. They are also incredibly committed to seeing the customer thrive, which is our end goal at GadellNet. They will be incredible assets to our team and we are all excited to continue this partnership.”
GadellNet will take over all of Blue Key’s clients immediately to ensure there is no downtime for their managed services. GadellNet’s staff is poised to migrate Blue Key clients through a tried and true onboarding process and with a supporting staff experienced in easing this transition.
Adding Blue Key’s talented team of Systems and Network Engineers will allow GadellNet to offer their clients more a well-rounded, diverse staff. These talented professionals will add to the central operations already in place in Indianapolis and position this branch to aggressively pursue more small business clients in the area.
“As we began the process of finding a possible organization to join forces with, our first and foremost concern was for ensuring that we found the best possible client experience,” said Nick Robinson and Mike Garvey, co-founders of Blue Key Technology. “We’re confident we’ve found the company best situated to provide our clients with outstanding service, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be integrating ourselves into the GadellNet family.”
GadellNet began in 2003 and has since grown to a dynamic team of 65 employees. For five years in a row, GadellNet has won national and local awards, including MSP Mentor’s Pioneering 250 Managed Service Providers and Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company. The Indianapolis branch alone has added 4 new employees in 2017 already. Due to this rapid growth, the Indianapolis branch will be moving to a new office in June located in Carmel, Indiana. This office will include individual workspaces, collaborative team-oriented spaces, a lounge, and an outdoor kitchen.
