Avnet has acquired TSSLink, an IT professional services organization that provides tech support, consulting and outsourcing services, field product installation, end-user training and technical staff augmentation. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

San Jose, Calif.-based TSSLink provides field services across North America helping business partners with value-add consulting for storage and virtualization solutions, including order management, field installation, configuration and implementation. In 2011, TSSLink generated revenue of $10.5 million.

“This acquisition supports the strategic expansion of our services portfolio and further strengthens our ability to deliver a comprehensive IT solution for our business partners," said Jeff Bawol, president, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas. “A key component of our solutions distribution strategy is the ability to drive growth for our suppliers and value-added resellers in markets where demand is continually increasing, such as storage and virtualization."

TSSLink also provides IT audit and compliance leadership, disaster recovery and business-continuity planning consulting and technical support.

TSSLink will be integrated into the Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas services organization. Phoenix-based Avnet sells through channel partners.
