More than 75 colleagues will join Convergint’s growing team, strengthening the company’s capabilities and foothold across Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Wyoming, and Alaska.

“Nearly 20 years ago, I sat down with the founders of Convergint to discuss their vision for the company. Since that time, I have continuously applauded their leadership, culture, and commitment to clients,” said Brian Allen, CEO of ATS Companies. “ATS Alaska and ATS Facility Systems are joining a phenomenal organization with outstanding leadership and strong principles. I have no doubt that the ATS colleagues and customers joining Convergint will excel in future endeavors.”
