Camera Corner Connecting Point (CCCP) is merging with Arlington Computer Products, an IT solutions provider based in Chicago and Atlanta. The Green Bay-based company will retain its name and local leadership.

“While we’ve been lucky to have had many opportunities to sell or merge over the years, ACP is the only one that finally made sense,” CCCP CEO Rick Chernick said in a statement. “We see a great company, a shared set of values and a leadership team we will work well with. We see only upsides with us bringing more solutions to our customers, providing more opportunities for our employees and developing deeper relationships with vendor partners.”

CCCP provides clients with a variety of solutions, such as IT, audio-visual, VoIP, managed services, physical security and retail across multiple end markets including business, government, education and healthcare.

The combined businesses will have more than $150 million of revenue, employ more than 250 worldwide and be a top solutions provider for many leading original equipment manufacturers in the Americas. Arlington Computer Products was Partner of the Year with Dell Technologies in 2018, and the combined company will be a top 25 partner of Hewlett-Packard nationwide going forward.

“In my previous role running channels for the Americas at Hewlett-Packard, I had the opportunity to work with many distinguished partners, but even among that elite group, my friend Rick Chernick and CCCP stood out,” said ACP President Scott Dunsire in a statement. “We are delighted to welcome him and his entire team and customer base to the ACP family.”

In addition to Rick Chernik, other CCCP leaders will continue in their roles, including Rebecca Chernick as chief financial officer and Ryan Chernick as president.

In addition to Green Bay, other offices for the newly combined business are located in Chicago, Buffalo Grove, Ill., Atlanta and London.
