NxtPhase acquired the APT Division of Vansco on January 1st, 2001, and I went with the sale.  NxtPhase was venture capital funded, and ran into cash troubles repeatedly.  In June 2003, they announced a plan to move its Winnipeg operations to Vancouver in May 2004.  I was asked to move, but advised of my intention to seek a termination instead of moving.  In December 2003, they decided to cancel the move.

I decided to do consulting instead.  A former colleague joined with me and we created Elecsys Solutions Inc.
