Somerville-based interior solutions firm dancker acquires Maryland-based DBE Systems

Integrated interior solutions firm dancker said Thursday that it acquired the assets of  Columbia, Maryland-based Design Build Engineering, a technology contractor delivering solutions for technologies that communicate over copper, fiber and wireless.

The acquisition is dancker’s fourth in the mid-Atlantic since 2018. Last July, dancker acquired Arbee, a Steelcase furniture dealer based in Washington, D.C., and which has offices in Piscataway, as well as locations in Maryland.

“The addition of DBE further strengthens dancker’s already formidable ability to integrate architectural, furniture, technology and logistics solutions as a trusted, single-source provider to corporate, government, education and health care facilities,” dancker CEO Steven Lang said.

“DBE is excited to be joining forces with dancker, inspiring our clients to see their technology infrastructure as the backbone to their business needs and leveraging our combined expertise to optimize our clients’ spaces to their full potential, regardless of whether employees are at the workplace, working remotely, or a hybrid of both,” DBE co-founder Rick Winde added.

Going forward, DBE will do business as DBE Systems, powered by dancker, and will continue to offer the same range of integrated technology services, including visual collaboration tools, visual displays, network infrastructure, safety and security, workplace analytics and ongoing maintenance and technical support. DBE employees will support and work seamlessly with the dancker team to deliver fully integrated workplace and technology solutions.
