NetGain SEO Acquires Larche Hosting Services


BARRIE, ONTARIO (April 30th, 2020) – NetGain SEO, a digital marketing agency from Barrie, Ontario, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Larche Hosting Services. The purchase will better serve the needs of both Larche and NetGain clients. The companies will remain close partners over the changeover and will continue to collaborate in the future. Close coordination between both companies will ensure that existing clients experience no service interruption or downtime and an increased level of service.

Since its inception in 2008, NetGain has expanded its range of services from web design to include graphic design, SEO, marketing, social media management, e-commerce, and mobile app development. Their client list includes many well-known names around the Simcoe-Muskoka area and clients across North America. Composed of marketing strategists, graphic designers, web developers, search engine optimization, and social media experts, NetGain ensures that their clients receive results that exceed expectations.

The acquisition from Larche, a fellow Barrie-based creative agency, will allow both companies to focus on their unique goals for the future. Larche plans to devote more focus to the development of UX-first websites, targeted marketing strategies, and video & animation. According to Jessie Larche, Managing Director, the transfer opens up a world of possibilities for the marketing company. “Netgain and Larche have a longstanding relationship and I trust their team and expertise implicitly. I’m excited that this milestone allows Larche to shift focus towards the growth and investment in our web, marketing, and creative departments. Moreover, I’m thrilled that our clients will receive exceptional hosting service and management.”

Through their new in-house hosting service, NetGain will be adding a division to its corporate structure called NetGain Hosting. With their existing and added portfolio of hosting clients, NetGain Hosting will become the largest hosting company in the region and allow them to round out their offerings, provide clients with faster response times, and create more cohesive hosting solutions.

For Drew Dekker, NetGain Founder and co-owner, the acquisition was simply the next step in the ongoing collaboration between the two companies. “We have enjoyed a great working partnership focusing on positive collaboration with Paul Larche, managing director Jessie, and the Larche team for many years, and will continue to do so.” Moving forward, NetGain will function as Larche’s preferred hosting provider.

NetGain’s president and co-owner, Craig Busch of the Busch Group of Companies, is particularly excited about what the merger means for Barrie as a business community. “This synergy will make Barrie home to the largest hosting company in the region.”

The companies will both be sending out direct communications to existing clients regarding the switchover. Interested parties are invited to visit NetGain’s website at for further information on the services that will be provided.
