Two Spokane tech firms, Intrinium and Interlink Advantage, have merged, creating a 35-worker company covering a range of web and technology services.
The new firm will be called Intrinium. At present the companies will remain in their current locations; Interlink operates at 609 N. Argonne Rd. in Spokane Valley, while Intrinium will continue operating from 105 W. Third Ave.
Kirt Runolfson founded Interlink in 1994, and it focuses on security, outsourced services, web, email and cloud computing. It currently has 11 employees.
Intrinium, started by Nolan Garrett in 2007, provides IT security and management consulting services. Its headcount is 24 workers.
It also has offices in Olympia and San Antonio.
Runolfson and Garrett began discussing the merger earlier this year. The two saw ways for their firms to work together and develop a stronger service lineup for local and national customers.
The merger takes effect in January.
