The Suddath Companies announced today it acquired commercial technology consulting and project management company, Phase Integration.
The deal solidifies the union between three Jacksonville-based companies after Suddath acquired Perdue, North Florida’s premier Steelcase dealer, in January of 2019. This further supports Suddath’s strategy to deliver comprehensive workplace design, furniture and technology solutions to the North Florida marketplace. The addition of a commercial technology services division will provide a seamless and complementary approach to Suddath’s existing office furniture dealership, Perdue, and position as America’s largest office mover.
Founded in 2016, Phase Integration offers a holistic approach for all commercial technology needs and delivers consulting, project management and managed services to Florida-based companies across the country.
“The market is thirsty for smart, connected and technologically-enabled workplaces,” said Mark Scullion, president of Suddath Workplace Solutions. “This acquisition will allow us to bring strategic value to our clients much earlier in the project lifecycle to support their IT infrastructure and workplace technology needs.”
Phase Integration will continue to provide commercial technology solutions to its existing clients and will operate as part of Suddath’s national project management business to support customers with commercial technology needs across the country. Phase Integration will integrate into Suddath’s Perdue locations in Jacksonville and Tallahassee.
“We are confident that this talented team will establish us as the thought leader for workplace technology best practices in North Florida. In addition, this capability expansion presents another opportunity for our customers to enjoy additional savings and simplicity related to consolidating all of their business relocation needs with one highly capable provider versus the myriad of vendors often needed today to plan, furnish, connect and relocate a business. We are focused on streamlining all of those things and being a complete program solution for our clients.” Scullion said.
This acquisition expands Suddath’s capabilities into audio visual solutions, structured cabling, lighting and control, sound masking and other workplace-related technology project management, further establishing the organization as an innovative industry leader.
“As a leader in full-service commercial technology solutions, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to become part of the Suddath organization,” Jay Morris, president and founder of Phase Integration said. “We pride ourselves in the unique way that we solve technology challenges for our customers. With Perdue as a leading North Florida office furniture dealership and Suddath as America’s largest and most innovative commercial mover, we are honored to be part of the combined organization. This opportunity to bring truly integrated solutions to the marketplace is very exciting.”
Vince McCormack, president of Perdue, added, “We are elated that Phase Integration will be joining the Suddath Companies and enhancing Perdue’s architecture, furniture and technology workplace strategy. We are planning to integrate the products into our newly renovated showroom to provide our customers a great example of how their spaces can work harder and more effectively.”
