SymQuest Acquires Business Operations of UBIQ Imaging SolutionsSOUTH BURLINGTON, VT Larry Sudbay, President and Chief Executive Officer of SymQuest Group, Inc. has announced that the company has recently acquired the business operations of UBIQ Imaging Solutions, with offices in Portland and Bangor, Maine. In addition to serving its clients throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and New York, the acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solution’s business operations will allow SymQuest to also service clients in the Seacoast region, as well as the immediate inland areas of both New Hampshire and Maine.Designing, installing and supporting business technologies that handle the information flow of electronic and physical communications, SymQuest currently houses its headquarters in South Burlington, Vermont and has offices in Rutland, Vermont, as well as Plattsburgh, New York, and Keene and West Lebanon, New Hampshire. SymQuest employs 130 technology professionals. The acquisition of UBIQ will add 20 additional technology professionals.SymQuest has a history of growth and acquisition as evidenced by its purchase of IniNet, Inc. in Keene, New Hampshire in 2004; its expansion into the Plattsburgh, New York region in 2006; and most recently, its acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solutions in Maine.”We are pleased to join forces with the UBIQ staff who share our standards of delivering service above client expectations and ensuring that clients are ahead of the curve in the fast-paced world of technology. In order to continue to provide our clients with the best resources, we must constantly evolve and geographical growth is a natural part of that equation,” says Sudbay.SymQuest’s Continued Pattern of GrowthSudbay founded SymQuest with Pat Robins in 1996 – a $10 million business at that time. SymQuest furthered its expansion with the acquisition of IniNet, Inc. in 2004. SymQuest gained a well-developed presence in the Keene, New Hampshire region. Founded in 1996, IniNet provided IT services, network design and consulting.Sudbay explains, “The integration of IniNet’s business and resources of technical people provides a remarkable advantage for our clients in New Hampshire, Southern Vermont and Massachusetts. We shared similar philosophies and cultures. As a result of the acquisition, SymQuest has increased market reach, providing better levels of service.”IniNet’s former owner and current Service Director for SymQuest’s Keene office, Scott Vickery adds, “IniNet had reached a stage of growth when an investment in resources and infrastructure was required for continued success. This was just an innate progression towards success for everyone involved: the clients and both the employees of IniNet and SymQuest.”In 2006, SymQuest opened their Plattsburgh office. The branch has experienced success in the region and continues to grow, establishing a solid presence for the company in the Northern New York market.Sudbay commenced talks regarding a potential acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solution’s business operations with its President and Founder, Jim Chamoff in early 2007. Locally owned, the Portland-based company provides digital imaging products to businesses throughout Maine and southern New Hampshire, including a complete range of hardware and software options for corporate and small businesses. UBIQs products and services include color imagers, corporate printers, small office printers, faxes, document management, secure printing and cost accounting.Chamoff has a career spanning more than two decades in the office equipment business. Throughout his career, Chamoff has excelled in delivering his extensive industry knowledge, personal enthusiasm and business experience to clients in Maine and southern New Hampshire.”We are thrilled about working together. SymQuest brings vast resources and benefits to UBIQ and its clients, such as: IT expertise, a Network Operations Center and 24/7 remote monitoring capabilities.”UBIQ was formed in late 2001 and has experienced significant growth during the past six years. We have approximately 20 employees between our Bangor and Portland offices; so, increasing from 20 employees to 150 is a positive development for both our internal operations and the clients we serve.”What Larry and his team have built at SymQuest is more than impressive. I immediately realized that my vision for the future of UBIQ is precisely what SymQuest is today, and that we are moving in the same direction,” said Chamoff.”Going forward, SymQuest will continue to expand the areas we serve with a constantly developing range of services. Currently, we are successfully transitioning from an emergency-based support approach to a comprehensive management services package – a more proactive approach,” says Sudbay.
