July 15, 2020 — Stow, Ohio — Bermex, a metering services company serving gas, electric, and water utilities across the country and a subsidiary of ACRT Services, announces that its parent company ACRT Services has completed the acquisition of StrategiTech, a metering solutions provider out of Ruskin, Florida. As part of the acquisition, StrategiTech will be merged with Bermex. The combined organization will retain the Bermex name.

Founded in 2013 by Tommy Combs, StrategiTech brings decades of utility services experience in a variety of focuses, including meter reading, line locating, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployment, automated meter reading (AMR) deployment, post-deployment services, atmospheric corrosion surveys, gas leak detection and resolution, and general meter services. Additionally, StrategiTech offers Sky Grid Solutions — aerial drone inspections for transmission assets, distribution assets, and solar panels; storm damage; substations and facilities; and vegetation management.

“We’re incredibly excited to be joining Bermex and the ACRT Services family,” said Tommy Combs, StrategiTech founder and now director of operations development at Bermex. “After many conversations, it makes sense that our two companies should come together to put our unique capabilities, as well as those we share, to greater and further use for our clients’ success.”
The purchase agreement became official on July 1. StrategiTech will formally become part of Bermex on October 1. Until then, the companies will be navigating the steps needed to transition Strategitech employees over to Bermex.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Strategitech to the Bermex family,” said Bermex President Kenny Murphy. “For nearly 50 years, Bermex has been serving utilities nationwide with metering services and other support capabilities. By welcoming StrategiTech to our family, we will expand those services and capabilities to deliver a more comprehensive suite of service offerings to our utility partners.”

“ACRT Services and our family of companies have always been about one thing: people,” said ACRT Services Executive Vice President of Operations Troy Ross. “Bermex is a great example of that, and it’s one of the key reasons they joined our organization in 2015. StrategiTech shares that same focus — delivering quality metering services that keep people informed and safe so they can continue to enjoy their homes and businesses and benefit from reliable utility service.”
