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.
