“This is a very deliberate and strategic move to provide our customers with a partner that can be their single source for all AV, IT and low voltage solutions,” said Barry Goldin, UAVS President. “We have a long history with, and immense respect for, the Xzact Technologies team and look forward to integrating our operations to the benefit of our customers and employees.”

Xzact Technologies is a Charlotte, NC-based company providing design, engineering, installation, and maintenance services for mission-critical infrastructure and network communications technologies to both private and public sector clients.

“It is our belief that, as technologies keep converging and complexity continues to grow, the physical layer and the mission-critical infrastructure will become the essential part of any customer technology solution,” said Javier Martin, Xzact Technologies CEO. “Together, we bring a powerful combination to the market by both enabling a well-planned and more efficient IT infrastructure, and enabling greater engagement with leaders and learners by providing state-of-the-art integrated solutions.”
