We are happy to announce that as of April 1, 2015, we reached a final agreement with Don & Diane Schuknecht to acquire Two Way Communications of Eau Claire, WI. Since 1985, Two-Way Communications has been providing wireless communication products to public safety, business, industry, and manufacturing entities. In fact, it was April 1, 1985 that Two Way started – it was purely coincidental (and interesting) that it happened to be EXACTLY 30 years later that RACOM purchased Two Way.
This acquisition announcement comes with much excitement as it is part of our strategic growth strategy – increase market share and add depth with industry-experienced sales and technical staff to help us deliver on our mission of delivering best-in-class mission critical communications solutions throughout the Midwest.
At this time, I would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone at Two Way Communications as our newest members of the RACOM family.
Dave Spenle – Mike Brunner – Pete Pederson – Mike Widule
During the next few months, we will be transitioning the Two Way company name to the RACOM brand at which time you can expect to see branding changes implemented in a variety of ways including our website, sales literature, company letterhead and invoices, etc.
As we transition, both Don and Diane have agreed to stay on for a few months to help make sure that things go smoothly. They are truly wonderful, caring people – and we are so appreciative of their willingness to be a resource for all of us. We’ll be better positioned because of them and for that we’re grateful!
As a new chapter in Eau Claire begins, Dave Spenle will be at the helm as the new Service Center Manager. Dave has been with Two Way for 13 years in the position of Technician and Service Manager and has 25 years of industry experience. Congratulations, Dave!
Best wishes to Don and Diane, may you enjoy much success in all your future endeavors no matter where life takes you. It has been a pleasure working with you over the years as a HARRIS Dealer – we’re going to miss you both!
On a final note, I’d like to thank the entire RACOM team for your commitment and dedication – our success is possible because of you! These are very exciting times for RACOM with the potential opportunities that exist with the addition of the talented individuals from Two Way!
