Markham, Canada, August 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Blair Technology Solutions is proud to announce its 20th year as a leader in providing IT solutions in Canada. At a time where IT companies come and go, Blair has achieved two decades of innovation and steady growth.
Blair began operations on April 15, 1996, when John J. Blair, President and CEO, began selling IBM midrange servers under the company Mid-Comp Computer Systems of Canada Inc. John changed the name to Blair Technology Solutions five years later to better align his company with the needs of his clients, who were looking for a personalized IT provider who could deliver customized solutions to meet their demand for emerging technologies.
In the last 20 years, Blair has provided innovative solutions to mid- to large-sized Canadian enterprises to help manage and optimize their operational efficiencies. The company’s commitment to high quality has helped them surpass their competition, but according to John Blair, “Our success and longevity is due to our outstanding clients, unparalleled vendors, and the efforts of our employees. I am incredibly grateful not only to those clients who have been with us since I opened my doors, but to our new clients and vendors who have helped us grow the company throughout the past 20 years.”
“You have been a trusted and valued IBM Business Partner,” says Dino Trevisani, President & General Manager, IBM Canada Ltd.” He adds, “Your firm has distinguished itself by building deep customer value and leveraging IBM technology to solve client problems. You have continued to evolve your skills, business model and offerings as the technology has changed over the past 20 years.“
“On behalf of the entire management team at Arrow ECS, I want to personally congratulate Blair Technology Solutions as they celebrate 20 years of delivering innovative solutions in the IT space,” said Robert Boulet, vice president and general manager of Arrow ECS Canada. “We truly value the partnership we have built with their organization, and we look forward to building upon that relationship for years to come.”
In 1998, Blair became a Premier IBM Business Partner, and has since developed solid relationships with leading vendors including IBM, EMC, and HPE.
According to Pierre Ouellet, Director, Information Technology, UAP Inc., “This milestone offers a wonderful opportunity to reflect upon the history of UAP's 20-year relationship with Blair Technology Solutions and the important contributions it has made to the technology advancement of our company. The Blair team consistently brings unprecedented levels of knowledge, advice and service to the complex IT requirements of UAP. Congratulations on 20 years of success, I look forward to partnering with you for years to come."
“Blair have provided us top quality service for the past 20 years,“ says Al Keast, SVP Technology, Bank of America Canada Branch. “They have helped us meet our hardware and support needs. Their commitment to getting the job done right is refreshing and has always been appreciated.
Joseph Kwan, former Director of IT, Cinram International Inc., says, “A sincere congratulations to Blair Technology Solutions, especially to John and his staff. [Through our 19-year relationship] every project, consultation and discussion carried expertise with a personal touch that has made Blair services unique and outstanding. We enjoyed every moment [and hope they continue to flourish].”
