Customers of Wang Government Services Inc. will have to get used to the
company's new name, but they will not see any difference in the company's
service, according to a company official.
Wang Government Services announced Thursday that it has changed its name
to Getronics Government Solutions LLC, reflecting the name of its Amsterdam-based
parent company Getronics NV. Getronics acquired Wang Global in 1999.
Getronics Government Solutions functions as an independent unit, offering
seat management, network and connectivity solutions, and information assurance
services and products.
For U.S. national security reasons, a proxy agreement with the Defense Department
gives an independent board of directors the authority to operate Getronics
Government Solutions on behalf of Getronics.
The name change is intended to more closely align the government-focused
unit with Getronics NV, an international leader in network and desktop services
and solutions, said Marlene Duvall, vice president of marketing at Getronics
The company's major prime contracts include the General Services Administration's
Seat Management, the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA, the Treasury
Department's Seat Management, The Justice Department's Office Automation
Integration Services and the Immigration and Naturalization Services' Facilities
Operation and Hardware Maintenance Support.
