HOUSTON, TX — Park Place Technologies announced that it finalized the purchase of Solid Systems CAD Services (SSCS), the Houston-based global support provider of third-party maintenance services (TPM). This marks the ninth acquisition Park Place Technologies has completed over the past 2 years. Park Place Technologies will gain SSCS and its regional offices in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Singapore, Brazil, Finland and Japan.
Chris Adams, President and COO of Park Place Technologies, said, “As a veteran third-party maintenance provider, SSCS is well-respected for its exceptionally talented and tenured team, which includes leaders instrumental in the foundation of our industry. SSCS has cultivated strong, long-term customer relationships as a result of its approach to service excellence and the ability to drive meaningful business value. SSCS’ approach is admirable and closely aligns with how we engage with our customers.”
The level of service SSCS continues to maintain shows the expertise of its field engineers and steadfast commitment to its customers, which is one of the many parallels between SSCS and Park Place Technologies and will help allow for a seamless transition. Through this acquisition, Park Place Technologies extends its scale within the TPM industry, concluding in added benefits for its global customers, which include an elevated level of service and operational support, greater resource availability and increased efficiencies.
Gahlen Carpenter, President, Co-Founder and Owner, SSCS, added, “Our customers and employees have always served as a guide for our business. We have carefully and transparently created tailored solutions for our customers and have extended this level of attention and purpose to the establishment of our team. The decision to be acquired by Park Place Technologies was an extremely thoughtful one and represented the best interests of our partners and employees. It’s been an honor to be part of SSCS and this change brings great opportunity for our organization and customers as Park Place Technologies upholds the values and culture we have ingrained in our company.”
SSCS continues at the cutting edge of third-party maintenance by evolving its service offerings to reach the desires of its Fortune 500 customers. Due to the acquisition, SSCS’ customers will benefit from Park Place Technologies’ expanded enterprise storage service capabilities and the company’s award-winning proactive maintenance service, ParkView®, which expedites response and resolution time for hardware faults.
This is the third acquisition for Park Place Technologies in 2018, following that of Origina Technology Services and Axentel Technologies, which together significantly expanded Park Place Technologies’ presence in Europe and Asia.
