Computers of Reno acquired
Curtis Jones, owner of Technology Center on Glendale Avenue in Sparks, last week completed purchase of Computers of Reno in the Smithridge Shopping Center.
The acquisition was a good fit, Jones says, because Computers of Reno has a strong retail presence while Technology Center has found a strong niche in sales and computer repair for business and government clients.
“It is just an add-on to what we are doing,” Jones says.
Terms of the acquisition weren’t disclosed, but Jones says he used a mix of private funding and a loan through Wells Fargo. Jones hired a new manager to run Computers of Reno, and both locations will begin focusing on cyber-security, Jones says. Technology Center employs six people.
Steve Santens of BTI Mergers & Acquisitions represented Jones in negotiations, while Katrina Loftin-Winkel of BTI represented the seller.
