Combined entity with retention of existing brands, creation of four additional jobs for the northeast
Managed IT and cybersecurity company, Sync IT, has merged with office and business solutions provider, Cusken. The merger supports 22 jobs in the northeast. The company plans to create four new positions over the next 18 months, bringing the workforce to 26 by the end of 2023. Both brands will continue to operate in the market.
Dundalk-based Sync IT was founded by Joe Molloy and Allison Cooney in 2013. The company provides managed IT and security services to small and medium-sized public and private sector clients across the North East. Cusken was founded by Paddy McCusker and John McKenna in 1987, also based in Dundalk. It provides business solutions in the sale and service of photocopiers, printers, audiovisual equipment, retail and office furniture to SMEs, enterprises, education and the public sector not only in the northeast but throughout the country.
“It’s as much a meeting of hearts as it is of heads,” said Joe Molloy, who takes on the role of chief executive of the new entity. “Sync IT and Cusken have similar cultures, values and ways of working. It is the heart. Likewise, by combining the company’s core competencies and skill bases, the new merger is poised to take advantage of emerging consolidations in IT, technology and “the workplace of the future,” added Molly.
Molloy’s co-director, Allison Cooney, has been named technical account manager, while Paddy McCusker continues his responsibilities as director of business development at the combined companies.
“Cusken and Sync IT are customers of each other,” said Paddy McCusker. “There is a deep mutual respect for what we both do and excitement for what we can do together in the future by combining our intellectual property, partnerships, skills and our respective teams. The backbone of our commitment to fusion is an obsession to put our customers first and stay relevant to them as the modern office and technology evolves.
“Our customer base will have access to our combined suite of services, including managed IT services, digital transformation, cybersecurity, and the sale and service of copiers, printers, audio visual equipment, retail and office furniture, in addition to a combined 45 years of ‘industry expertise and customer service’, added Molloy.
