ANGI Homeservices on Thursday announced it had agreed to acquire Handy Technologies, Inc., a New York-based household services platform. Handy brings a nationwide retail partnership network that will allow ANGI Homeservices to reach customers who have just made purchases requiring installation. It also expands ANGI’s roster of service providers, one of the company’s biggest challenges. “Handy gives us a strong foothold in the gig economy space with an innovative product and infrastructure to power retailers’ in-home services offerings,” said ANGI Homeservices CEO Chris Terrill. The company did not announce the purchase price. In the year to date, ANGI Homeservices shares are up more than 80%.
