Ron Nicholas, the founding partner of GSNetworks commented, “As Steve (Godding) and I looked to find the right acquisition partner for our employees, customers and suppliers, it became clear that Artaflex has the same vision and approach to business that we have displayed for the past 40 years, which was extremely important to us.” Godding adds, “With the ever-changing competitive landscape, combining with Artaflex, its Canadian and US footprint and expanded service offerings, will be of great benefit to all our stakeholders, both now and in the future.”
