Chattanooga IT solutions provider Claris Networks, LLC., announced today that it has been acquired by TekLinks, Inc., a Birmingham, Ala.-based IT company that already operates in three states.

 Established in 1998, Claris Networks is a privately-owned provider of advanced IT services including cloud, managed, healthcare IT and strategic consulting with offices in Chattanooga, Nashville and Knoxville. 

"I could not be more excited for what this partnership with TekLinks means for our customers and employees," said Larry Bodie, former CEO of Claris Networks and current TekLinks Senior Vice President of Tennessee. "This acquisition will enable us to better fulfill our dual missions: to provide the best service our customers will ever experience, and to be a place our employees love coming to work." 

Bodie also said that both he and Claris Networks' co-owner Dave Sagraves will maintain partial ownership in TekLinks and significant leadership roles in the company.

Earlier this year, TekLinks earned the distinction of being ranked 16th in Penton Technology's eighth-annual MSPmentor 200 North America Edition, a notable list and report identifying the continent's leading managed service providers (MSPs).  TekLinks was also named to Computer Reseller News' (CRN) Tech Elite 250, an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors.
