I’m excited to see us continue to expand our capabilities and improve the quality and depth of our service to our northern customers. With our recent change to northern ownership last fall, and the conclusion of several new Joint Ventures across the north, and now this acquisition, we are in a great position to respond to the current and future needs in our sector while maximizing local impact and benefits”.
This mutually beneficial transaction has also created a new relationship between Scarlet and Nunasi – that of tenant and landlord. “The sale of SECURECheck is part of Nunasi’s strategy to focus our investment portfolio.
