Leading Canadian and U.S. ERP Consulting Firms to Merge

Six S Partners Canada and Tri Gem Company U.S. Join Forces to Deliver Epicor Kinetic ERP Solutions and Unmatched Customer Satisfaction across North America


Waterloo, Ontario, December 14, 2016 – Waterloo, Ontario-based Six S Partners, Inc. – the Epicor Global Partner of the Year for 2015 and 2016 and Americas Partner of the Year for four consecutive years – announced its merger today with U.S.-based Tri Gem Company. Tri Gem is a leading Epicor Channel Partner and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation services consultancy based in Wind Gap, Pennsylvania, with locations spanning the eastern seaboard.

Under the terms of the merger, Six S Partners and Tri Gem will create joint ownership of a new U.S. entity operating as Six S Partners LLC to market its products and services across the U.S.

“We recognize the strong synergy between the two companies based on our shared extensive knowledge of ERP solutions, commitment to unmatched customer satisfaction and continued implementation and sales successes,” says John Preiditsch, founder and president of Six S Partners, Inc.

Terry Ellis, founder of Tri Gem, agrees the timing is right to bring together these two top companies. “This merger combines the best U.S. and Canadian ERP talent and our strong reputations for exceptional ERP implementation, strengthening our position in the Americas.”

The merger will enable both companies to leverage their recognized talent to expand to additional regions in the U.S. and Canada. “Delivering Best Practices consulting with the use of Epicor Kinetic ERP is our ongoing focus and the value we bring to the market,” added Ellis.

Timely response to the manufacturing, distribution and service industries’ business growth and operational challenges is critical to compete in today’s competitive marketplace. The Epicor Kinetic ERP and services from Six S Partners are designed to help manage those challenges in a profitable manner.

“This newly merged organization will now be the strongest team available to respond to market, company and economic demands,” explains Preiditsch. “In the coming years, companies will need to continually adapt and change to address business challenges, including reduced cycle time, improved inventory management, increased cash flow, operationally integrated company expansions – both domestic and international – delivering operational improvements via back office tasks and business processes, to name a few areas we address with our services.”

Andy Cicala, Tri Gem partner, states, “We are excited to bring our customers even greater expertise and resources and broader industry experiences with this merger.” He adds, “We can assist any company in any sector with ERP operational best practices, whether it’s optimizing ERP software implementation timelines and budgets or continuing to deliver platinum-level Epicor support and services.”
