January 4, 2018


Skinny IT, a Frisco-based information technology (IT) service provider, today announced the acquisition of Installation & Service Technologies, Inc. (IST), a single-source solution provider for on-site service and repairs, to enhance the company’s ability to deliver on-site deployments for clients nationwide.

Previously, Skinny IT deployed its own on-site workers for high-volume orders. The acquisition of IST enhances Skinny IT’s ability to reach clients with tailored, on-site services, including surveys, project management, staging and kitting, installations, service contracts and depot repair.

“We emphasize the importance of superior, on-site service, ensuring clients that quality will be consistent with each interaction, and IST’s mission fits well within these high standards,” said Sam Darwish, CEO of Skinny IT. “IST is known for its complete life cycle coverage with innovative and responsive field support across multiple industries nationwide. We are confident this acquisition will be a smooth transition for clients and employees, and are looking forward to expanding into new verticals with the expertise IST brings.”

Acquiring IST into the Skinny IT brand advances the company’s vision to become a top nationwide IT service provider that improves business operations and overall productivity through the use of technology, creativity and flexibility. In addition, the combined entity will accelerate its specialty for main markets, including retail, restaurant, sports arenas and construction.

“IST has earned a distinct client rapport of continuous improvement and trustworthiness through the entirety of a project’s journey. We feel this acknowledgement, as well as our service capabilities, will only be enhanced as we transition into the Skinny IT brand and company,” said Jacob Horwitz, owner of IST. “Skinny IT has a clear vision of how clients and employees will benefit from a strong, combined workforce. We look forward to the company’s leadership and fresh initiatives to providing business IT solutions.”
