Integra, the Portland-area-based provider of communications and network services, has received the regulatory approvals it needs to wrap its acquisition of World Communications Inc. (WCI).
WCI, headquartered in Seattle, is a voice and data services provider. Integra says the purchase brings it a sizable base of enterprise customers who now gain access to its vast network resources. It also boosts Integra’s talent pool in the Seattle market. WCI and Integra have been working closely together over the last several months to ensure a seamless integration with minimal disruption for customers.
“The acquisition of WCI is a key step in the continued growth of our fiber-rich Northwest markets and we’re pleased to see it to completion,” said Jesse Selnick, Integra’s chief financial officer. “The combination of WCI’s strong customer roster and enterprise expertise and Integra’s rich network assets will yield substantial benefits for both existing and new customers while enhancing Integra’s position as the premier choice for network services for businesses in the region.”
Financial terms were not disclosed.
