An Arkansas-based information technology services company has acquired Pinnacle IT of Fort Smith.
The Computer Hut has acquired Pinnacle IT and will be merging the companies on May 1. According to the Computer Hut CEO Chris Bates, the merger will enable the company to expand its footprint and solution portfolio across Arkansas.

With its headquarters in Little Rock, the Computer Hut has offices in Lowell, Texarkana and Jonesboro. The merger adds to the company’s coverage in the Arkansas River Valley region with the addition of a Fort Smith office.
