Telebyte Announces Acquisition of WBM Telecom Division to Create a Commanding Unified Communication Group in Alberta and Saskatchewan
Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina and Red Deer, October 15, 2012 – Telebyte Communications Inc. and WBM Office Systems have concluded an agreement, that will see the Telecom Division of WBM become part of Telebyte Communications effective today. Both teams, each with strong reputations for quality installation and service of leading unified communication solutions, have worked in the Alberta and Saskatchewan markets for over 15 years.
Adding WBM’s Telecom Division will create a new partnership for Telebyte, providing customers with a stronger, larger and more customer focused team. Telebyte will compete with a diverse market offering: unified communication business systems, audio and video conferencing, building security solutions and infrastructure cabling & fiber optic installation. All of these areas are “Teaming Up” to make the company a one-stop shop for all their customers’ needs.
This new Unified Communications team will continue to be known as Telebyte Communications Inc. with its head office in Calgary, and branch offices in Red Deer, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Regina. The team will continue to represent the highest quality products from vendors such as Mitel, NEC, Polycom and Zultys. “The combination of great national brands in addition to our fantastic service teams really separates us from the competition,” said Merle Isaacson, president of Telebyte Communications.
WBM Office Systems, with head offices in Saskatoon, continues to move forward as one of Canada’s leading IT Solutions Providers.
“This was an exciting opportunity to see the people of our Telecom Division continue to advance their careers as part of a new and focused team, while also knowing that our current telecom customers would be well taken care of. We wish each of our very special people, our telecommunications customers, and everyone at Telebyte the greatest of success,” states JoeAnne Hardy, President of WBM.
“For us at WBM, this move means we are now moving forward with much more power to invest and grow our support capabilities and capacity in other areas of IT, as we pursue our commitment to being a great IT Solutions Provider to our amazing customer community.”
As part of the move, past WBM Vice President Garry Laxdal will also be leaving WBM to join Telebyte to lead the product specialists team as Vice-President Sales, bringing his extensive experience and leadership in the Telecom industry to the new organization.
Garry commented “I look forward to the remarkable communications division team at WBM combining efforts with the exceptional team at Telebyte to further strengthen our leadership in the growing field of Unified Communications in Western Canada. Combined, we clearly are one of the largest independently owned communications companies in Canada, continuing to provide the very best in solutions, managed services and most importantly, increased customer service and satisfaction to all our valued customers and partners.”
