San Luis Obispo-based TekTegrity announced Friday it had acquired Innovative I.T. in Fresno.

Although the value of the deal was not disclosed, the move solidified TekTegrity’s standing as San Luis Obispo County’s largest IT provider. With its footprint expanded to the Central Valley, the company now has 300 clients and 65 employees — up from 250 and 47, respectively, at the Business Times’ last count.

One year ago, TekTegrity consolidated the region’s IT services industry with its purchase of Digital Foundation. In late 2010, TekTegrity acquired Sentinel Network Systems, and Digital Foundation acquired Grover Beach-based Cloud Logic.

“Combining our resources and experience will allow us to keep up with industry advancements and develop technology tools to serve our clients better,” TekTegrity CEO Russ Levanway said in a press release. “Local businesses will have access to a broad level of expertise that’s hard to find in smaller IT companies.”

Innovative I.T.’s entire staff will join the TekTegrity team.

“TekTegrity approached us with a vision for a combined company that would preserve our relationships with our clients and include our entire team at Innovative I.T.,” Brian Horton, CEO of Innovative I.T., said in a statement. “TekTegrity provides complementary support services to what we already do, which will significantly enhance the value we can provide to our clients.”
