January 2, 2017, Ridgeland, MS – BadgePass, has acquired the business and assets of Addem, Inc., based in Fargo, ND. For BadgePass, headquartered in Ridgeland, MS, the acquisition of Addem represents the fifth acquisition in the last three years and furthers its footprint to include five state capitals and direct sales and service coverage in eight states.
For more than 30 years, Addem has provided customers with industry-leading identification solutions and integration services in North Dakota and Minnesota. They have years of expertise from all vertical markets including corporate, education, healthcare, casinos and hospitality, government and more.
Phillip King, president and CEO of BadgePass, said, “This acquisition is another big step in our long-term plan to sell and promote our credential management solutions across North America. Our strategy for growth is to continue working with our network of dealers; however, we are always looking to expand our direct sales and service coverage throughout the US. In this case, Addem was a perfect fit for our company culture and sales strategy and we’re excited for our first official office in the Northern United States.”
The entire Addem team will be joining the BadgePass team and the office will remain in the same location. Alex Knudtson will remain on as the Regional Territory Manager for the ND branch. He will play a critical role in the region as we look to expand our sales and service footprint and grow our team.
“I am very excited to join the BadgePass team,” commented Knudtson. “We have had a great relationship with BadgePass for years and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for us together.”
The details of the transaction are confidential.
