Earthlink acquires Synergy Help Desk business

10/28/2011 10:13:51 AM

Georgia-based Internet services and communications company EarthLink Inc. has made another Rochester-area acquisition — the hosted application business and IT solutions center, in Buffalo, of Synergy Global Solutions Inc. Synergy, in Victor, provides information technology consulting, hardware, software, project and support services. The acquisition of some of the Synergy businesses will help EarthLink build its IT service support capabilities. Along with Synergy's Buffalo solutions center, EarthLink also is adding approximately 80 Synergy employees. The purchase price was not disclosed. EarthLink became a significant player in the Rochester economy earlier this year with a $370 million acquisition of the telecom One Communications. Since then, EarthLink has been on a local shopping spree, picking up Perinton-based and xDefenders Inc., an information technology security company also based in Perinton.
