En Pointe Technologies to buy Tabin

En Pointe Technologies signed a nonbinding letter of intent to acquire Tabin Corp., the company announced Sept. 17. The acquisition is expected to close in 30 days. The purchase price was not disclosed.

Tabin Corp. of Chicago is a reseller of technology products and services. The company, which was formed in 1996, serves the Chicago area and several other U.S. cities.

Joshua Tabin, Tabin Corp.'s chairman and chief executive officer, said his company will be able to use En Pointe's suite of business tools to improve services for customers. One of the most significant of these tools is AccessPointe, the company's e-commerce platform, he said.

"From their long-term, solid relationships with their manufacturers and vendors to their comprehensive use of technical systems, including SAP, Clarify and AccessPointe, along with En Pointe's status as a minority business enterprise, I believe this acquisition by En Pointe will yield significant benefits to our customers," Tabin said.

En Pointe of El Segundo, Calif., is a provider of IT products, e-business solutions and professional services to medium and large commercial customers and government and education accounts of all sizes.

The company has more than 500 employees and annual sales of about $365 million, according to Hoover's Online of Austin, Texas.
