Subcarrier Communications, a New Jersey-based tower infrastructure provider, acquired Houston-based AC Site Management for $2.1 million.
In an interview with FierceInstaller, Subcarrier President John Paleski said that the acquisition gives the company access to a number of very tall buildings, including the tallest building in Indiana. Paleski said that this access to tall buildings will help the company's government services division "shore up the broadcast government sector portion of our business," Paleski said.
AC Site Management had operations in 17 states, with a particularly large presence in Texas, Paleski said. Subcarrier operates in all 50 states.
Subcarrier leases antenna space to wireless service providers, broadcasters, government agencies and other organizations. The company manages more than 800 building rooftops for property owners and owns more than 300 towers. It also provides a variety of wireless site services, including site acquisition, site audits, tower construction, antenna installation, subsequent augmentations and maintenance.
Last April, Subcarrier opened a regional office in Houston and hired Dudley Norman and Greg Weger, two telecom infrastructure veterans, to handle projects from Houston.
In addition to the Southwest regional office in Houston, Subcarrier also has a Southeast regional office in Miami as well as a regional office in Hot Springs, Ark. The Hot Springs office handles much of Subcarrier's business in western states.
