Rosewood Private Investments (“RPI” or “Rosewood”) is pleased to announce that General Informatics (“GI”) has acquired substantially all of the assets of the PC Sales and Managed Services Division (the “Division”) of EMCO Technologies (“EMCO”). Based in Baton Rouge, LA, EMCO is a leading technology firm that specializes in IT staffing support and solutions for Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. While all other divisions of EMCO will continue to operate as usual, the PC Sales and Managed Services Division, its employees, and clients will join the GI platform as it continues to accelerate its growth in the region.
This Division of EMCO provides IT managed services, consulting, network support, hardware/software sales, and other services to a number of top clients in and around Baton Rouge. With its additional scale and capabilities, GI will continue to provide these clients with its full-service technology solutions while maintaining the shared focus on outstanding delivery and customer service.
“EMCO takes exceptional care of their clients and we believe that its customers and employees will integrate perfectly with the culture and mission we have built here at General Informatics over the past 20 years” said Don Monistere, President of GI. “This acquisition reaffirms our commitment to Louisiana and Baton Rouge and strengthens our capabilities and strategic position as we look to further grow throughout the region.”
Todd Bourgeois, CEO of EMCO, and Mike Lee, CFO of EMCO, have had success growing the primary business of EMCO and saw this acquisition as an opportunity to maintain focus on EMCO’s core business, while providing a strong platform for continued development of the division’s clients and people.
“We are thrilled to provide our clients and employees with an opportunity to join General Informatics and become a part of such an exciting growth story. EMCO remains committed to providing world class service to our core customers and look forward to a continued relationship with General Informatics as fellow technology industry leaders in the state and region,” said Todd. Mike added, “We are very confident that our clients will be well taken care of by GI and are excited to maintain our core business with continued focus and enthusiasm.”
This transaction represents the first acquisition for General Informatics since Rosewood recapitalized the company in October 2020. “EMCO’s managed services division brings great talent and clients to the GI platform, and we are very excited to get this first one done. We hope this represents the first of many acquisitions as we continue to grow GI,” said Briton Burge, Principal at RPI. Mohit Vij, Founder and board member of GI, added, “I have known Todd and Mike for several years and knew they had built the right team for us to incorporate into the growing GI family. Combined with General Informatics’ processes and services, I am excited to see the future growth!”
