EDMONTON, Alberta, Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, (F12) announced the acquisition of Protocol Technologies Inc.(Protocol), one of British Columbia’s most highly-recognized IT service providers.

The addition of Protocol advances F12’s reach into the BC market, complementing its recent acquisition of another BC-based IT company, OnDeck Systems Inc., located on Vancouver Island.
