WINNIPEG – Manitoba Telecom Services (TSX:MTS) says it has acquired a Winnipeg-based information technology company for an undisclosed sum.
MTS said Wednesday the purchase of EPIC Information Solutions helps the company expand the array of services it can offer clients to networking, services and integration solutions.
Currently, EPIC provides IT infrastructure and management services to about 700 businesses in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
The IT company will operate as a separate, wholly-owned subsidiary of MTS.
“EPIC has a great reputation in the IT infrastructure and managed services market in Manitoba,” said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd in a statement.
“EPIC’s services complement and strengthen our existing business communications service portfolio. Working together, MTS and EPIC will be even better positioned to meet customers’ needs with combined IT and IP communications solutions backed up with the best local expertise of any service provider in the province.”
