WesTower Communications

 

WesT­ower Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (“WesT­ower”) was acquired in April 2011 con­sist­ing of oper­at­ing enti­ties for the United States mar­ket and Cana­dian mar­ket. It was founded in 1990 as a designer and builder of tower structures.

The company’s oper­a­tions expanded beyond that to include the following:

  • con­struc­tion of tower structures
  • fab­ri­ca­tion of tower structures
  • pro­fes­sional ser­vices that pro­vide com­plete ser­vices, includ­ing acquir­ing the tower site, archi­tec­tural and engi­neer­ing, project man­age­ment, and staff augmentation
  • tech­ni­cal ser­vices on exist­ing towers
  • a com­bi­na­tion of all of the above
  • dis­as­ter recov­ery that pro­vides tem­po­rary cel­lu­lar tow­ers to dis­as­ter areas with dam­aged infrastructure

WesT­ower is also known in its indus­try for its focus and suc­cess rates for safe work places for its employ­ees. The mis­sion of WesT­ower can be sum­ma­rized as: Safety, Qual­ity, and Pro­duc­tiv­ity. The safety and health of their employee’s is con­sid­ered to be the most sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor for WesTower’s suc­cess. Qual­ity means doing all tasks cor­rectly, the first time, every time. Per­form­ing work cor­rectly means doing it safely.

WesT­ower gives its cus­tomers an abil­ity to work in unique loca­tions and under unique cir­cum­stances. This includes design­ing and con­struct­ing tow­ers in com­mu­ni­ties with strin­gent con­di­tions around the appear­ance of tow­ers. As a result, tow­ers are designed to be stealth and fit in with the geo­graphic area such as a flag pole, a church steeple, a cac­tus or the replica of a monument.

The main cus­tomers of WesT­ower are the major telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion com­pa­nies. These cus­tomers deal with WesTower’s ser­vices in con­struct­ing new tow­ers, mov­ing exist­ing tow­ers, and upgrad­ing or chang­ing the equip­ment on exist­ing towers.

In Octo­ber 2014, Exchange Income Cor­po­ra­tion sold the US oper­a­tions of WesT­ower. As a result, WesT­ower includes the Cana­dian oper­a­tions only sub­se­quent to that transaction. The oper­a­tions of WesT­ower’s Cana­dian oper­a­tions are focused on the engi­neer­ing, design, man­u­fac­tur­ing and con­struc­tion of these towers.
