Goodman Networks, a leader in the design, engineering, deployment, integration and maintenance of wireless telecommunication networks, announced today the acquisition of the assets and workforce of Design Build Technologies (DBT), a full-service wireless construction company that builds and maintains communications towers for major network operators across the Southeast United States.
As wireless data traffic grows and capacity continues to be constrained, demand for tower resources nationwide is expected to remain strong. The addition of DBT’s assets and workforce augments Goodman Networks’ existing “self-perform” capabilities.
“We are in the midst of an exciting time where network operators–fueled by consumer demand for connectivity and bandwidth–are focused on making 4G services ubiquitous in the markets they serve,” said Ron Hill, President and CEO, Goodman Networks. “In order to continue to serve as the trusted strategic partner to today’s top service providers, we must do everything we can to ensure we have the skills and available resources necessary to fulfill our customer commitments. The addition of the DBT assets represents a powerful complement to our existing capabilities and enhances our ability to serve our customers in today’s dynamic telecommunications environment.”
“We are very pleased to be part of Goodman Networks,” said Dale Williams, President and Founder of DBT. “Goodman Networks is a world-class organization with deep expertise deploying wireless networks. We believe that combining our interests with Goodman Networks will be beneficial to our customers, vendors and employees, and that Goodman’s high-growth profile, financial strength, strong leadership and ability to manage large-scale projects will provide opportunities for our team members and a more robust set of solutions for our customers.”
This acquisition represents another example of Goodman Networks’ strategy to grow through acquisition. In February, Goodman Networks acquired the Services Division of Cellular Specialties, Inc., a leader in Small Cell and DAS deployments, and in May the company announced a definitive agreement to acquire publicly-held Multiband Corporation, which is anticipated to close in the third quarter of 2013.
The former DBT employees will be part of Goodman Networks’ Infrastructure Services Division operating in the Southeast region.
