BEND, Ore. April 5, 2013 - Weston Technology Solutions is pleased to announce an asset based acquisition of Business Information Technology Solutions, Inc. (BITS), a Bend-based provider of computer and information technology services. This acquisition allows BITS clients access to new service offerings and solutions that will further enhance their businesses. BITS owner Dave Arnold will be joining the Weston team in their Bend office, allowing clients of both companies to continue working with their same trusted team members.
"Weston and BITS have been friendly competitors in Bend for many years now," said Brock McFarlane, CEO of Weston. "Both companies have focused on providing the best technology solutions for our clients with friendly and professional support. When Dave and I started to discuss the benefits of our companies working together we realized that our two halves really will make a much stronger whole. This translates into a well-rounded team that can engineer a robust and reliable solution for a client and then monitor and maintain that solution.
Dave Arnold, owner of BITS, stated "I have always thought that there were only two contenders for IT services in Central Oregon, BITS and Weston. Both companies had incredible strengths, but combined, I have no doubt that the improved Weston will stand second to none. I truly believe that this was meant to be as our paths crossed so many times in Alaska and here in Central Oregon, plus we share so many fundamental beliefs. Hang on, the future's looking bright!"
Both Weston and BITS believe in supporting the local Bend community. Both companies have worked with local non-profits and helped them in their efforts in the past. This support will continue and is a core component of Weston.
