N.Bredin Informatics is the sole proprietorship of Neal Bredin. My proprietorship was established in 1991 in the province of Ontario, Canada and has been in continuous operation since that time.

N.Bredin Informatics provides systems analysis, design and programming services for development and maintenance of large scale mainframe applications.
