Excel Corp. is buying Payprotec Oregon LLC, which does business as Securus Payments.
Portland-based Securus Payments sells credit card transaction terminals to about 10,000 merchants in the U.S.
Excel's ownership should help Securus into other areas of merchant distribution, sales and products.
Excel provides credit and debit card processing services. The company also provides licensing, merchandising and distribution services to brands in the retail sector. In January 2013, Excel bought Excel Business Solutions Inc., which also provides credit processing services.
