Groundwork Acquires the works IT

by Web0 comments

Why the acquisition?

The evolution of the works IT and our long-transitioned focus on design and web, away from IT, aligned perfectly with Groundwork’s services and mission. Additionally, we’ve been leaning out the business and services while seemingly forever in the midst of rebranding the company to better represent our departure from the IT industry. Bringing the works IT into the Groundwork family helped us accomplish these goals, while further empowering all of our clients.

From Groundwork:

Groundwork’s foundation has always been rooted in helping build success for bold entrepreneurs and innovative small businesses who aspire to do good. This has been our passion since our inception in 2010 and bringing the works IT’s customers under our umbrella not only fits perfectly, it will empower all of our past, present, and future partners with the attention and tools they need to be successful.


What’s Next?

Since the works IT has also been a long-time customer of Groundwork, hosting all of our customers’ sites and products with them from the beginning, there will be very little change on the surface. A large majority of the transition has already taken place, all of the affected people have been notified, and everything should be all squared away by March 31, 2019.

We plan to keep up and running for at least another year or two for posterity’s sake. If you’re new to Groundwork, we’d love to get to know you – take a look around, reach out on our social platforms, and welcome to Groundwork!!


It’s Not Goodbye

We feel so lucky to have been in business since May 2008 thanks to all of our stellar clients! This isn’t goodbye, however. Ian and the team will live on through Groundwork and truly look forward to helping you lay the foundation of your web presence.

Please swing by Groundwork and say hey! Check out the full story on Groundwork’s website.


About the author




I’ve been in the design and web industry since 2005, and more times than not, you’ll find me shoeless, my music loud, espresso in my cup, and following a pretty irregular schedule. I’m passionate about business, technology, design, and the environment, so I genuinely enjoy what I do – especially when those passions all merge in a thunderous cloud of work/project/unicorn majesty. I'm also super passionate about people and travel, and the endless learning opportunities to be had when openness and spontaneity is embraced.....(more)

TLDR Summary

All of the gnomes over at Groundwork are so proud and so stoked to welcome the works IT customers into the Groundwork family! Groundwork is absorbing all of the works IT’s services, customers, and operations, it’s going to be wrapped up in a few short weeks, and everyone’s going to benefit handsomely! Welcome to Groundwork!! 😀🙌🏾
