We are excited to announce that on June 25, 2021, Heartland Business Systems, LLC (HBS) entered into an agreement to acquire certain assets of The NetGuys, a regional leader in Cisco IT solutions. The addition of The NetGuys and its service offerings aligns with Heartland’s vision of accelerating innovation that enables digital enterprise expansion in Minnesota.

This acquisition will benefit Heartland by growing our existing voice, collaboration, and networking services practices, and materially expand our base in Minneapolis. In addition, joining Heartland will allow The NetGuys to offer an expanded catalogue of products and services to their existing customers.

Since 2012, The NetGuys has been providing multi-vendor computer products and services throughout the Twin Cities and beyond. Dave Lilligren and the team have built and maintained a significant market share of Voice Collaboration with a focus on small to medium businesses, mid-market enterprise, and K-20 education organizations.

According to Peter Helander, CEO at Heartland, "Cisco solutions are an important part of Heartland's expansive service and product offering. Adding to our operations with the reach and talented technical experts at The NetGuys will bring the HBS experience to more clients, provide even greater service to our existing clients and will further strengthen our voice, collaboration and networking practices. Most importantly, HBS and The NetGuys share the same priority and vision – a commitment to our customers and a focus on relationships."

Dave Lilligren, the founder and majority owner of The NetGuys said, “With continued growth opportunities in Minnesota, we look to expand our product offerings and Services bench for our customers. Not only will they have access to a greater depth of service and business solutions, they will experience a greater breadth of technology expertise from a company focused on innovative technologies and strategic partnerships. With core values that aligned with The NetGuys it made sense for our companies to merge to drive growth. The integration is expected to be seamless to current HBS and The NetGuys customers."
