CS3 Inc., Memphis, TN, and Sibley Solutions LLC, two long-standing Mid-South companies, announced today that they have entered into an agreement in principle under which Sibley will join CS3 to become one entity and set its sights on aggressively growing its business in the management of smart building environments.

The merger further broadens CS3’s overall service offerings. It adds approximately 23 employees to the company’s customer service staff, providing more resources to respond faster in emergency situations.

The CS3 website boasts an impressive listing of the company's capabilities in BAS systems integration services. Its customers include Bridgestone Arena, St. Jude Childrens' Hospital, and Regional Medical Center, and St. Francis Hospital.

“The joining of our companies will allow us to be a full-service company for our clients by expanding our resources,” says John Jerkins, President of CS3 Inc. “Sibley is known for its premier service with 24/7 emergency response teams and highly qualified technicians. CS3 will now be able to enhance our ability to service clients’ needs with this new addition to our company. We’re excited about growing our operations and expanding our workforce.”

For Sibley, the merger introduces a large array of new services for existing clients, as CS3 provides a variety of services in the mechanical/HVAC and controls industries, including building automation, piping, plumbing, power, safety, security and sheet metal.

“Our customers will instantly notice the benefits and value of having full design build and building automation resources in-house,” adds Mike Gross, President of Sibley Solutions LLC. “This means we can provide any facility renovation imaginable and maintenance from beginning to end for our customers’ needs. We are looking forward to joining the CS3 family and strengthening our services for our customers.”

Gross will remain with CS3 as director of sales and services.

Integration of Sibley into CS3 will begin immediately and efficiently, as details of the merger agreement have already been finalized.
