Incentra Solutions Chairman and CEO Thomas P.

"The addition of SSI in New Jersey and our recent acquisition of Helio Solutions in Northern California to our existing operations in the Northwest, West and Midwest establishes Incentra as a strong nationwide provider of complete IT solutions, which we believe will continue to accelerate our rate of growth," Sweeney added. "And with our ability to support customers purchasing and deployment needs in Western Europe, we are one of only a handful of complete solutions providers able to support customer needs on both sides of the Atlantic. Our results over the last several quarters have proven that acquiring systems integrators with existing direct sales organizations serving the enterprise market drive sales of our higher margin services offerings, and we are confident that the acquisition of SSI will continue that trend."Incentra Solutions Inc.
