LRS Finalizes Acquisition of Capella Technologies

ANAHEIM, CA – July 15, 2013 –Today, Springfield, IL-based Levi Ray & Shoup, Inc. (LRS) announced that it had finalized its acquisition of the business of Capella Technologies (Capella). The newly purchased business will now be referred to as Capella Technologies, a Division of Levi, Ray & Shoup, Inc., and will continue to operate from Capella’s existing Anaheim, CA location. LRS is in the process of consolidating its California operations and relocating its existing sales and technical teams to the Capella facility in Anaheim.

Capella founder Robert Blanchet will continue in this new LRS division as Vice President in charge of its operations and personnel. “We’ve received a warm welcome from our new colleagues at LRS,” remarked Blanchet. “Our team recognizes the opportunity this gives us to enhance our offerings and improve our customers’ ability to improve critical business processes.”

John Howerter, LRS® Senior Vice President of Product Marketing, added “It has been a busy two months since announcing our acquisition plans. Behind the scenes, our support staff has been hard at work on integrating our internal systems. Our product teams have also been working hard on a few projects that we hope to bring to market by the end of the calendar year. I am already seeing evidence that LRS and Capella are far better together than we were as separate organizations.”
