BrightStar Acquires Ontario-Based WirelessWorks

by Istvan Fekete on October 22, 2015

BrightStar, a company specialized in mobile products, services and technology organization, has announced its acquisition of Ontario-based WirelessWorks, a specialized consulting and solutions provider for mobile network operators and device manufacturers.

Canada isn’t a new market for BrightStar, as it already offers device protection solutions. With the acquisition, however, it plans to establish its first permanent presence in the country and to become a platform for introducing services across the entire device lifecycle for device manufacturers, carriers, retailers, and enterprises.

“The investment expands our customer profile and access into Canada’s fast growing mobile and technology industries, and at the same time, WirelessWorks’ mobile network and device engineering expertise will benefit Brightstar and open up new opportunities within the wireless ecosystem,” said Jaymin B. Patel, Brightstar President and CEO.

WirelessWorks was established in 2010 and provides a wide range of engineering services, such as mobile network planning and design, device testing and certification, and specialized consulting services and training solutions to customers in the telecom industry.

“With Brightstar’s global capabilities, we’re able to provide even greater value to our customers and help strengthen their competitive edge in the market,” said Mike Hortie, former CEO of WirelessWorks, and now President of Brightstar Canada. “The WirelessWorks team has a deep understanding of the Canadian telecom market and we are excited that this, combined with our longstanding relationships with key stakeholders in the industry, will provide the platform for the delivery of Brightstar products and services in Canada.”

Under the agreement, WirelessWorks will retain all employees and continue operating from its headquarters located in Markham, Ontario, under the new name of BrightStar Canada.
