Integrated interior solutions firm dancker has acquired Columbia, MD-based Design Build Engineering (DBE Systems), an Integrated Technology Contractor (ITC) focused on delivering solutions for all connected technologies which communicate over copper, fiber, and wireless in order to improve the business workflow.

“The addition of DBE further strengthens dancker’s already formidable ability to integrate architectural, furniture, technology, and logistics solutions as a trusted, single-source provider to corporate, government, education, and healthcare facilities,” said dancker CEO Steven Lang.

“Both DBE and dancker share the same philosophy, namely that integrating technology seamlessly into the workplace experience plays an absolutely critical role in the success of our clients’ businesses in a highly connected world," Lang continued. "Given that shared sense of purpose, it simply made sense for the two firms to bring our talented teams together and expand our combined footprint throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets.”

Going forward, DBE will do business as DBE Systems, powered by dancker and will continue to offer the same range of integrated technology services, including visual collaboration tools, visual displays, network infrastructure, safety and security, workplace analytics, and ongoing maintenance and technical support. DBE employees will support and work seamlessly with the dancker team to deliver fully integrated workplace and technology solutions.
