General Informatics, a Baton Rouge-based information technology services company, has acquired TC Telecom LLC of Walker.
The price was not disclosed. The six employees at TC Telecom now work at the General Informatics office in Baton Rouge.
TC Telecom, which has been in business since 2003, provides data, voice and video solutions and has expertise in installing fiber-optic and high-speed data network infrastructure.
Mohit “Mo” Vij, the chief executive officer of General Informatics, said TC Telecom’s background in installing sensors and controls will allow his business to create connected smart buildings like @Highland, its $20 million headquarters under construction at the intersection of Highland Road and Bluebonnet Boulevard. That property is set to open in the spring.
An 8-acre site designated for a technology firm’s offices has been acquired for $3.6 million…
Vij said commercial smart buildings are a rarity. By taking on TC Telecom’s expertise, his company will be able to create smart buildings with one network running things such as IT, phones, audio-video and security cameras in an integrated matter. That will allow for new processes that will save money for companies.
“This partnership will bring the synergy of our two teams to connect the physical world with software-driven intelligence,” said Denver Cassels, president of TC Telecom.
General Informatics, which has 50 local employees and offices in Lafayette, New Orleans and the San Francisco Bay area, has been in business since 2001. The company offers information technology planning, storage, security and other services to businesses and government agencies.
