This merger brings substantial benefits not only to the local labour market as David Aplin Group expands its Halifax offerings but also strengthens Aplin’s IT practice nationally.

Jeff Aplin, President of David Aplin Group, says, “This expansion in Halifax combined with Archway’s excellent reputation and extensive years serving the IT industry aligns with our growth strategy and commitment to strengthening our national IT business. Jim Garland, Archway Founder and Owner is respected as a leader in the Atlantic Region’s IT community. We’re excited to welcome Jim and his team.”

“This is a truly exciting time for Archway,” says Jim Garland who will join Aplin’s Halifax office as Principal of Archway IT, a division of David Aplin Group.  “We have enjoyed our time as an independent player for many years.  The business environment is rapidly changing and we realize that to be truly competitive, a national reach and the resources of a larger firm will allow us to be that much more valuable to our clients.  Aplin’s approach to business and their culture is a strong match to ours. I know Amy (Amy Reid, Halifax Aplin Vice President) well and am excited to work with her and watch our footprint continue to grow.”
