Fourth Add-On Acquisition Strengthens CDI’s Security and Public Cloud Capabilities

New York – One Equity Partners (“OEP”), a middle market private equity firm, today announced that its portfolio company Computer Design & Integration LLC (“CDI”) , a market-leading IT solutions provider, has completed the acquisition of Kintyre Solutions, Inc. (“Kintyre” or “the Company”), a system integrator with practices focused on cloud native application development, observability and investigation platforms, cloud optimization, and various security engineering technologies. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 2015, Kintyre provides product development, advanced configuration management, integration, data analytics, security engineering and other high value managed services. Headquartered in Philadelphia, the Company offers full end-to-end enterprise class cloud native development and optimization to clients.   

“Kintyre’s services offering is highly complementary to CDI’s offering and strengthens its portfolio of cloud development and security engineering capabilities,” said Chip Schorr, Senior Managing Director at One Equity Partners. “This acquisition reflects OEP’s deep expertise in identifying strategic acquisitions that build market share and create transformational growth opportunities for our portfolio companies.”

The transaction is CDI’s fourth add-on deal as a portfolio company of OEP and follows its acquisition of High Availability, Inc., a Philadelphia-based IT solutions provider in January. CDI acquired P5 Solutions, Inc., a Reston, Va.-based ServiceNow Elite Partner, in September 2020 and Plan B Technologies, Inc., an Annapolis, Md.-based IT solutions and professional services provider, in July 2020.

“Becoming a CDI Company was the next right step for Kintyre, and we’re excited to have found a partner that values our mission and our position in the industry,” added Brian Kennedy, President and Founder, Kintyre. “We look forward to demonstrating our application modernization expertise, and integrating our combined DevOps, security and hybrid cloud capabilities to continue developing the world class digital foundation that customers have come to expect.”
