Green Bay-based Baycom Inc., a provider of wireless voice, video and data solutions, announced it has completed the acquisition of Milwaukee 2-Way Inc., a Motorola Solutions Radio Channel partner based in West Allis.
The acquisition of Milwaukee 2-Way will complement and expand Baycom and Motorola Solutions’ strategy to provide public safety and commercial organizations in southeastern Wisconsin with best-in-class products and unmatched customer service and support.
The acquired business, which serves public safety and commercial customers in southeastern Wisconsin, will operate as Baycom Inc. and will continue to run as a full sales, service, rental and support operation.
“We see this acquisition as an opportunity to best serve our existing and new customers,” said Steve Elias, president of Baycom. “This was a strategic decision that supports our company’s mission and vision to be dedicated to total customer satisfaction and provide best-in-class products and services as a trusted partner. In our decision to acquire Milwaukee 2-Way, we saw an opportunity to, not only provide a local service location to our existing customers, but also provide new customers in the area with continued service and extended product lines of mission critical technologies for public safety and commercial organizations.”
“We take mission critical communications very seriously,” said Elias. “Our team has made it our highest priority to ensure that our public safety and commercial customers are covered with our best-in-class service and support during this transition and moving forward.”
The acquisition and transition plans are effective immediately. Baycom plans to employ a majority of the current Milwaukee 2-Way staff and start Baycom employee training this week.
“We are excited about joining forces with such a growing and progressive company like Baycom,” said David Brooks, a former Milwaukee 2-Way vice president who will be assuming a position at Baycom as vice president of business development. “With our two companies merging, we can best deliver the utmost service and support to our customers.”
Baycom will maintain headquarters in Green Bay, with certified service centers in Marinette, Green Bay, Neenah and West Allis.
