The recent announcement by Maverick Technologies of the purchase of GE's system integrator business is really a directory of lost companies tale: Paul Galeski of Maverick originally got GE into the system integrator business by selling them his previous company, Magnum Technologies...and now he has it back, for rather less than GE paid for it originally, so I understand.

Rather, it is a competitor for integrator consortia like Automation Alliance Group (www.automationalliance.net). Walt
