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.”

Marty Snyder - CEO, Communication Infrastructure Corporation

“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”.

Brett Bonomo - Founder and President, Castle Rock Microwave

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.”

Ken Ruppel - VP of Customer Success, Communication Infrastructure Corporation

“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."
