Tex-port buys Learning Technology Group

Tex-port Inc., a computer reseller and consulting firm, has purchased the Learning Technology Group for an undisclosed amount. LTG sells and services computers for the education market.
The two firms will continue to operate as separate companies, said Philip Ferranti, Tex-port’s executive vice president. Management is merging, however.
Ferranti has been named president of LTG. Ken Chellam, Tex-port’s president, is executive vice president of LTG. Peter Doniger, LTG’s former owner, will serve as vice president of LTG, with responsibility for its day-to-day operations.
The two firms employ 34 workers and are expanding rapidly, Ferranti said. Revenues for Tex-port alone jumped from $2.1 million in 1993 to $12.1 million last year.
Some of that revenue is generated from outsourcing contracts Tex-port holds with Eastman Kodak Co., Delphi Energy and Engine Management Systems, and Electronic Data Systems Corp.
LTG has landed several educational contracts, Ferranti said, including large installations at school districts in Corning and Skaneateles.
Plans are under way to bring the two companies under the same roof, Ferranti said. Now, Tex-port works out of an office at 830 Linden Ave and LTG has offices at 1956 West Henrietta Road.
