  • HELIX IT INC. ACQUIRES MTN COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS TO OFFER ENHANCED IT SERVICES IN SIMCOE COUNTY

    (Orillia, ON, July 19, 2021) – Helix IT Inc., a national full-service information technology company, today announced they have acquired MTN Communication Systems (MTN), based in Midland, Ontario. MTN has been serving Simcoe County and the surrounding area with voice and data cabling solutions, voice processing, call accounting, business telephone systems, public address systems and IP security camera installations since 1985. With this agreement, Helix IT will work with MTN customers on existing service agreements and new design and installation projects.
    MTN was established by Mike Proulx 36 years ago to service Midland and the surrounding area with voice and data cabling services. The business was later taken over by Mike’s son, Matt, who continued the personalized service for which the company was known. Over the years, MTN has worked with many area businesses, as well as industrial and government clients.
    Helix IT Inc. began in 2009 in Orillia, ON to offer structured cabling services. Since then, the company has expanded across Canada, with offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and Kitimat, BC, as well as a sister company in Bermuda. Today, Helix IT offers expertise in a range of technologies, including Managed IT services, networking support, WiFi, access control, audio/visual systems and security and surveillance.
    The well-established and loyal customer base of MTN is welcomed into the Helix IT organization. In addition to offering the company’s full suite of services, Helix IT will continue to support the legacy Toshiba telephone systems in place across the MTN customer base as well as NEC Business Telephone Solutions systems.
    Robert Loxton, Chief Executive Officer of Helix IT Inc. said: “We have known Mike and Matt at MTN for years, and I am pleased to be able to work with their clients to offer continuity of service, as well as enhanced service offerings. We are dedicated to providing personalized service and technical expertise to them and to new customers in the Midland and surrounding areas.”
    Mike Proulx, co-owner of MTN Communications Systems said: “I would like to thank our customers for their years of dedication, and I have every expectation that with this acquisition, the foundation that we have built over the years with MTN will be supported and expanded. Helix IT is an established business with knowledge of the local marketplace, and we are pleased to be able to pass our customers along to a company with their breadth and expertise.”
