Canvas Host Acquires Portland-based Host Pond

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 23, 2017

Portland, Oregon – Canvas Host, a Portland web hosting provider, acquired Host Pond on March 23, 2017. Financial details were not disclosed. With more than 700 customers comprising 1600 domain names, the acquisition is the largest ever for Canvas Host.

Richard Powell, owner of Host Pond, said in a release to his company’s customers this morning, “I’m thrilled to announce that Portland-local Canvas Host has agreed to assist in a seamless transition of our customers into their virtually identical hosting environment. After an exhaustive and careful search and all the possible ways I could have envisioned this transition going, I’m confident that this was the best possible outcome.”

David Anderson, Owner of Canvas Host, added, “When two companies join forces, there is an opportunity to create something better than what they separately were before. Though technically an acquisition, philosophically we think of this as a merger, as there are many great things the two companies have each done with their service lines and how they care for customers. Together, our two companies’ energies are a perfect match, and we’re excited to see our collective offerings evolve and improve. In the end, it will mean happier customers that will receive ever better support.”
