MTS acquires IT firm Epic

  • Print

Manitoba Telecom Services has expanded its product offering to local businesses by acquiring information technology firm Epic Information Services for an undisclosed sum.

MTS said today the additional IT services it gains access to through Epic will provide its business customers with a broader range of combined IP communications and IT (networking, servers, integration) solutions to address their computing, data processing and storage needs. It will also enable them to address their need to communicate with their own customers, vendors and other locations.

"EPIC has a great reputation in the IT infrastructure and managed services market in Manitoba," MTS president Kelvin Shepherd said in written statement. "EPIC’s services complement and strengthen our existing business communications service portfolio," Shepherd added. "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."

Epic president and CEO David Reid, who along with his management team will continue to run Epic as a separate, wholly-owned subsidiary of MTS, said the deal marks the beginning of a new chapter in Epic’s 18-year history.

"With MTS’s investment, we’ll be able to grow our business faster, offer new solutions to our mutual customers, and provide new opportunities for our employees," Reid said.
