Communication Infrastructure Corporation Announces Merger with Castle Rock Microwave
Leading Wireless Telecommunication Services Providers Join Forces
East Greenwich, RI; March 31, 2017
Communication Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) is pleased to announce the merger
of CIC and Castle Rock Microwave. CIC is one of the Country’s leading microwave integration firms with more than
30,000 microwave links engineered and installed over the last 2 decades. Castle Rock Microwave is a leading regional
microwave integrator in the Western United States. The merger expands the market reach and service offerings of both
companies, enabling the combined entity to provide a greater depth of service to its customer base.
“Both parties really complement each other; we are very excited about the merger. The Castle Rock team has dominant
expertise in the markets they serve. We feel very fortunate that they would consider
joining the CIC team. We wouldn’t have done this if we did not align on corporate values and vision. Castle Rock
Microwave puts their customers first, meets their commitments and are relentless in pursuing excellence – all values we
hold very dear at CIC.”
“We feel that the resources CIC has to offer the Castle Rock Microwave team are a perfect fit for our customer base.
CIC’s proprietary software, engineering staff and
self-performing field teams are precisely what our customers are looking for to solve their unique challenges. We
couldn’t be in a better position now to support our customer’s needs”.
This merger triggers a new management structure for the company. Marty Snyder remains President of CIC. Tim
Robertson remains VP of Operations & Finance, Brett Bonomo is the Executive Vice President of Customer Acquisition
and Ken Ruppel, former Vice President of Engineering for CIC is appointed to Vice President of Customer Success.
“I’m especially excited about this merger. Brett and I have
worked together for over 15 years and we have established a strong partnership to provide wireless network operators
innovative solutions and fanatical support. It’s a pleasure to be working with him and his team.”
“The timing for this merger is fortuitous. The public safety community is embarking on the construction of a nationwide
Public Safety broadband network known as FirstNet. The law creating FirstNet requires this network to penetrate deeply
into rural America. The best option for backhaul to and from these rural communities is microwave because of the huge
economic advantage microwave has."
The combined CIC is focused on wireless-related telecommunications services including link and network engineering, site and path surveys, site development including tower and shelter construction, turnkey integration, as well as site and network monitoring and maintenance.
CIC extends traditional microwave services including Fiber, DAS, SCADA, AMR and Cellular technologies.
Our customers include the Tier-1 wireless and wireline carriers, transportation companies and agencies, public safety, municipal, utility/energy, financial and private network operators.
