BlueStream Professional Services (Faribault, MN), a national provider of planning, implementation and maintenance services for wireless and wireline communications networks, announced that it has purchased select assets of Tempest Telecom Solutions' (Santa Barbara, CA) distributed antenna systems (DAS) and small cell division. Terms of the transaction were not released.
The Tempest Telecom Solutions DAS and small cell assets identified in the agreement will be integrated into the BlueStream Professional Services portfolio of wireline and wireless services. The terms of the agreement will allow BlueStream Professional Services to execute certain existing projects and contracts as assets are transferred.
"This is an exciting time for BlueStream Professional Services as we continue to focus on growing wireless capabilities and services and further strengthen our position as a leading provider of professional services," comments Trevor Putrah, president of KGP Companies, BlueStream's parent company. "This acquisition provides us with the opportunity to increase our scale, while further diversifying and extending our market coverage for DAS and small cell services."
The integration of the Tempest DAS and Small Cell division will augment the current BlueStream services while further enhancing its expertise, scale and capabilities. Darlene Braunschweig, former president of Tempest's DAS and Small Cell Division, will assume the role of general manager for the BlueStream DAS and Small Cell business unit.
"We're excited to welcome the transitioning Tempest employees to the KGP Companies family and are confident their knowledge and experience will further enhance our ability to solve deployment challenges for our valued customers," concludes KGP's Putrah. "Consistent with the past 40 years, we remain relentlessly focused on our customers, and look forward to continuing to leverage our core value-added service offerings."
