MicroAge Group of Southwestern Ontario (SWO) and MicroAge Calgary will merge existing operations to form Metafore Corporation. The merger is expected to be completed by August and will create a national e-business solutions company that leverages the experiences and relationships of more than 500 associates in 10 locations and 13 satellite offices across Canada.
