VCA provides audio-video integration, digital signage, and unified communications solutions and services. The acquisition will enhance Yorktel’s engineering, fabrication, field resources, digital signage, and help desk support, according to the company.
VCA, founded in 1972, has a 25,000 square foot fabrication facility in the greater New York City area that Yorktel will leverage for its expanding customer demand, the companies said. VCA has around 60 employees. Once the acquisition has been finalized in early March, these employees will become part of a wholly-owned subsidiary named York-VCA LLC, Yorktel confirmed with ChannelE2E.
