In an epic business takeover, MTS has acquired Winnipeg-based EPIC Information Solutions.
The IT infrastructure firm manages services to approximately 700 businesses across Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
The acquisition will allow MTS to expands its ability to offer Manitoba businesses a comprehensive suite of IP communications services in the province, including voice, data, wireless and now IT infrastructure services.
“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,” said MTS president Kelvin Shepherd.
EPIC will continue to operate as a separate, wholly-owned subsidiary of MTS. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
