Northwood, Ohio. – July 18, 2018 – Line Systems, Inc., a fast-growing telecommunications provider, today announced its brand unification with Telesystem.
Telesystem, a leader of Voice, Data and Managed solutions in the Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan area and parent company, Block Communications Inc., jointly announced the agreement to acquire Line Systems, Inc. (LSI) in 2014. Since then, LSI and Telesystem have been strategically unifying operations and aligning cultures.
The unification of one brand name will continue to advance Telesystem’s mission to provide services that empower businesses. "The acquisition of LSI complemented our overall offering and expanded our national outreach. We are very excited about officially having LSI become part of the Telesystem team," stated John E. Martin, President of Telesystem. “This has been a long transition, but we wanted to get it right. It was important to get aligned strategically and ensure that our customers have an experience with our company that instills confidence.”
