We have acquired Quadrus Development Inc., a leading IT services and solutions firm headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. As a five-time Inc500/5000 recipient (2009-2013 Honor Roll), the transaction is expected to increase Improving's annualized revenue by more than 20% and will expand its geographic reach beyond the United States and into Canada.
Furthermore, this merger represents the continued execution and success of Improving's "Enterprise Model", an innovative business strategy focused on merging service companies who share a genuine commitment to excellence, service and culture. The model combines localized incentives and ownership behavior with the power and benefit of leveraged services and common vision. As a result, the entire Quadrus leadership team will continue operating and growing the Calgary business, contributing to Improving’s continued success across North America.
"The secret is to truly preserve the local ownership behavior which has already made each of these companies successful," states Curtis Hite, CEO of Improving Enterprises. "Quadrus’ 20-year track record of business success and strong corporate culture makes them an ideal company to join the Improving team. They are a natural fit which will enable us to effectively leverage the cornerstone of Improving's success – sincere community engagement and overwhelming employee involvement."
