Leadwave merges with Insight Data Systems

Sarnia’s LEADWAVE Technologies Inc., has announced a merger agreement with Insight Data Systems Inc., to absorb the company’s operation and client base.

The merger of the two Sarnia-Lambton IT companies was announced this week.

“The decision was over a year in the making and represents a clear win-win outcome for all parties involved,” Chris Jillson, owner of Insight Data Systems, said in a press release.

He and the company’s lead technician have been added to the LEADWAVE team, according to the release.

“A merger or acquisition of Insight had been in our plans for a few years now,” said Mat Berube, CEO of LEADWAVE Technologies.

“Chris has built one of Sarnia’s longest standing IT companies and we knew from experience that clients of Insight had been extremely loyal.”

That says something, Berube added.

“And, it’s very enticing for a company like LEADWAVE who’s committed to world-class customer service and continued growth.”

Insight Data Systems was formed by Jillson in March 1992 in response to a need for multiple-user computer support within the small and medium-size business community in Sarnia-Lambton.

LEADWAVE provides IT systems monitoring, maintenance and management, including help desk support, end-point and gateway security, malware protection, and backup and disaster recovery.
