NIVERVILLE BASED 3T SYSTEMS, A LOCAL LEADER IN FIXED WIRELESS HIGH SPEED SERVICE, HAS BEEN ACQUIRED BY SWIFT HIGH SPEED, A STEINBACH BASED FIXED WIRELESS AND FIBRE INTERNET PROVIDER.
3T Systems was founded by Rob Dolinski and Jordan Hiebert in 2011 and they were joined by a third partner, Ryan Bergen, a few years later. The goal? To provide a family friend with a reliable connection to the Internet. It didn't take them long to realize that there was a huge need for quality Internet access in rural Manitoba. Over the years the business grew, but the mission always remained the same: to provide exceptional services to both town and country customers alike.
For the past several months, Swift and 3T have had many discussions regarding the sale of their company. It was clear to their ownership group that taking care of their customers, who also happened to be family and friends, was their top priority. The acquisition process of 3T Systems was very simple and smooth as both 3T and Swift's priorities aligned throughout. Swift will be welcoming former 3T staff on with permanent roles to ensure the transition process is seamless process. With 15+ tower sites and all company infrastructure already matching, the purchase of 3T allows Swift to have a strong presence in the Niverville and Grande Pointe areas. Swift will be continuing a large fibre build in 2020 and we're excited that it will also benefit existing 3T customers.
"3T has been connecting under-served customers in Southeast Manitoba for the past 9 years. Their dedication to the customer experience and the quality of installation aligns really well with our own." said Evan Schroeder, COO of Swift. "Bringing in the highly trained 3T staff to Swift through this process will really improve our own systems. 3T has been really proactive in backend systems that Swift would like to use across our existing network as well. Companies like 3T share our rural goals and we're excited to grow with 3T going forward!"
“Swift’s vision and customer service culture align very closely with ours,” said Jordan Hiebert, President of 3T Systems. “Nothing is more important to us than ensuring a smooth transition and a continued high level of service for our customers. We are truly grateful for their business over the years and we are certain they are in good hands with Swift”.
Ryan Bergen, one of the 3T owners and network administrator, is excited for acquisition and in his new role with Swift. “Really looking forward to joining the Swift team, the direction they are going is exactly what I’ve been dreaming of. I’m excited for the new opportunities for myself and for our customers."
