Modesto-based computer service and IT company Datapath has acquired Fresno’s Valley Network Solutions.
Valley Network Solutions was founded by husband-and-wife team Daniel and Noi Duffy more than two decades ago.
With this expansion, Datapath will widen its service into rural communities and multiply its staff to assist companies in industries including agribusiness, K-12 school districts, higher education, manufacturers and professional service organizations.
Datapath helps mitigate the risk of data theft. Its Datapath Security Operations Center monitors thousands of cyber-intrusion attempts for customers.
“We’re excited to be passing the baton to not only an industry leader, but to a team of people whom we greatly trust to serve our client base and nurture the existing staff,” Daniel Duffy said. “I whole-heartedly believe in Datapath’s vision to empower people and organizations to boldly grow. I am proud to pass things off to such a capable and outstanding team – I know Valley Network Solution’s customers are in great hands.”
The acquisition creates a company of 60-70 employees. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We have been extremely pleased with the growth in our company and the growing need for leading technology services in our region,” said David Darmstandler, Datapath CEO and co-founder. “Adding an office in Fresno, staffed with very knowledgeable technical experts, not only expands our footprint, but also greatly improves our ability to support clients with multiple locations throughout the Central Valley. The new Fresno location provides immense opportunity for Datapath, enabling our customers up and down the state to benefit from additional resources and solutions, including enterprise-grade managed security.”
Datapath was founded in 2005 and has been listed on the Inc. 5000 since 2013. It hosts the six-week summer coding camp CodeX and Lemonade Day Modesto, a young entrepreneur program.
