TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fulcrum IT Partners (“Fulcrum”) announces the acquisition of Canadian IT services leader Stoneworks Technologies, which has been providing IT consulting, implementation, and integration services for various platforms and solutions to Canadian-owned businesses since 2001.
With this transaction, Fulcrum completes its third acquisition of 2023 and increases its geographic presence throughout all of Canada. Additionally, Stoneworks' strong customer portfolio of departments and agencies within the Canadian Federal Government and other clients in the public sector are welcomed, expanding the global IT service provider's vertical specialization in the public sector.
Based in Ottawa, Canada, Stoneworks has grown its business to over $120M in annual revenue over the past 20 years. The team of 25 employees builds and manages resilient and reliable infrastructure for more than 500 corporations and government agencies in Canada. Its preferred technology partners include vendors Cisco, Dell, Hitachi, HPE, and VMware.

Just as exciting is bringing iON's top-tier cybersecurity capabilities to Stoneworks' customers as we build a unified Canadian solution offering.”
“With over a million SMEs in Canada, the opportunity for growth and the increasing demand for digitization and new technologies presents a perfect landscape for Stoneworks and Fulcrum to help Canadian businesses optimize, serve, and scale,” notes Kelly Carter, Chief Strategy Officer of Fulcrum IT Partners.
