Fuller version is that the later Mitel founders worked for another
telecoms (Bell??) company when they left, they were restrained from
setting up in the same business area for a couple of years so they setup
a business selling lawnmowers until the restraint period expired. Then
the name of their telecoms startup, (MITEL) was derived from the name of
their interim lawnmower business.
