Diversified, a global technology-solutions provider, has announced the acquisition of HB Communications, an audiovisual-integration firm headquartered in North Haven CT. Although Diversified was founded in New Jersey and has been organically cultivating business in the northeast for years, this acquisition grows the company’s team in the region so as better to serve the dynamic needs of its clients.
“Expanding our footprint in the northeast is a strategic step in sustaining the necessary growth to deliver the best possible service for our customers,” Fred D’Alessandro, Founder and CEO of Diversified, said. “I am excited to welcome the team at HB, with their widely recognized industry presence and experience, into the Diversified family.”
Complementary Solutions Portfolio
According to the companies, HB’s complementary solutions portfolio—including audiovisual, broadcast, collaboration, creative services, digital signage and managed services—will enhance Diversified’s offerings and provide needed support to address a growing and changing marketplace. With a greater workforce presence now in the northeast, the acquisition perfectly positions the company to help more organizations answer the call of modern digital media, communications and collaboration needs. What’s more, the acquisition provides existing HB clientele access to additional technology specialties, such as security and IT, as well as professional resources on a global scale—enhancing their operations with a single, dedicated technology partner.
“Since we share a common mission centered on connecting people and organizations by empowering communications worldwide, joining Diversified offers a host of exciting new opportunities for our team,” Dana Barron, CEO of HB Communications, added. “Given Diversified’s reputation of engineering excellence, innovation and dedication within the market, I know that we will achieve great things together.”
In addition to the expanded geographical footprint, HB’s list of high-profile clients in both higher education and corporate enterprise adds a track record of experience to Diversified’s repertoire. And, as one of the first major acquisitions in the industry since the pandemic, this move demonstrates Diversified’s continued commitment to growth—seizing opportunities that are mutually beneficial to its clients and internal teams.
