Convergint is increasing its presence in the GCC and Middle East with the acquisition of MVP Tech
Said Kiwan, Regional Director at MVP Tech, in an exclusive interview with the Security Middle East magazine, discussing how the two companies’ visions and ambitions align.
Convergint, a global leader in systems integration that designs, installs, and services electronic security, cybersecurity, fire and life safety, building automation, and audio-visual systems, had acquired MVP Tech, UAE-based security and IT systems, contractor. This acquisition is an important step forward for Convergint as it continues to increase its presence in the GCC and the Middle East region. Engineering-driven, MVP Tech is considered to be the Security, IT Systems, and Artificial Intelligence Software Development Engineering company trusted to execute diverse and highly complex projects for government and military applications and industry leaders across the private sector.
The acquisition of MVP Tech marks a major milestone for Convergint as it continues to expand its presence in the GCC region. With this acquisition comes several advantages for both companies, including additional resources to support their customers in the Middle East region with more comprehensive solutions that can meet their needs better than ever before.
Backed up by global market knowledge and expertise, positioning MVP Tech as a truly ‘global’ partner of choice. This will enable MVP Tech to expand its contracting capabilities across the EMEA region whilst developing innovative, forward-thinking offerings to existing and new clients. With more global support, MVP Tech will aggressively push into KSA and possibly other GCC markets.
The acquisition of MVP Tech is an exciting move forward for Convergint as they continue to expand their presence in the Middle East region. The acquisition will result in a strong competitive advantage for both Convergint and MVP Tech, thanks to their strong tech, customer-focused culture and their combined outstanding expertise in emerging technologies. MVP Tech is rapidly expanding artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data capabilities, which will help accelerate Convergint’s own investments in these areas.
