PHOENIX, Ariz. – Apr. 26, 2021 – Education is a powerful agent of change and access is key. That’s the vision that is uniting Trox and Tierney as they announced a merger of the two companies today. The merger positions the joint organization as the most prominent and experienced education technology solutions provider in North America.
With over 80 years of collective experience in the education sector and more than 750 talented associates, Trox + Tierney will be primarily focused on providing technology to the K-12 market and addressing some of K-12’s most pressing challenges – providing access to learning for students and easing the burden on educators and students when it comes to effectively communicating and collaborating in any setting. The combined organization will be led by Erez Pikar, CEO of Trox. Rob Gag, CEO, Tierney, will lead its sales organization.
“We were looking for a partner to help us better address the new and future challenges faced by educators and students and Tierney was the ideal choice,” said Erez Pikar, CEO, Trox. “As a joint company with unparalleled scale, Trox + Tierney will be able to offer new skills, greater value, and improved purchasing efficiencies to districts and other organizations, as well as access to a larger network of vendors, products, and geographies.”
Given the complementary geographic footprints between Trox and Tierney, the combined organization can now cover the entire U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada to better serve the education sector. Its comprehensive portfolio of products and services will provide greater selection, service and convenience in support of educators in K-12 and higher ed.
“Both Trox and Tierney share strong, values-driven cultures, which we will build upon as a unified organization,” said Rob Gag, CEO, Tierney. “Our customer-first approach and deep market knowledge will enable us to bring new and innovative services and offerings to market faster, helping our customers better leverage technology to address their toughest challenges.”
The Trox + Tierney merger combines two formidable and complementary technology portfolios and creates a complete suite of education-specific services, including design and installation, IT asset disposition (ITAD) and product lifecycle management, professional development, and pre- and post-deployment technical support.
