St. Cloud-based Marco said the acquisition is part of its plans to expand nationally.

Marco, Inc., announced Wednesday that it has acquired TelServ Communications, Inc., a voice communications, data networking, and managed IT services provider based in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

St. Cloud-based Marco, which has 465 employees at 22 offices throughout the Upper Midwest, will combine its Aberdeen office with TelServ’s operations. It plans to retain all of TelServ’s 13 employees.

Marco specializes in data networking and security, converged voice applications, print and document management, managed services, audio/video services, and video surveillance systems.

The company said that the acquisition—which is its ninth since 2007—is part of its plans for national expansion.

“This acquisition allows us to broaden our services in South Dakota and provide even more innovative technology services and support to our valued customers,” Marco CEO Jeff Gau said in a statement. “We’re excited to welcome the customers and staff of TelServ to our 100 percent employee-owned company.”
