Specialty contractor-engineering firm, KCI Convergent Technologies, is changing its name to KCI Communications Infrastructure (KCI-CI), along with combining its wire-line construction and wireless engineering arms.
The resulting organization will provide turnkey cell tower construction, leveraging its contracting expertise in cabling, outside plant and cellular construction and maintenance with the comprehensive design capabilities of sister engineering firm KCI Technologies. Now the firm is targeting construction work in the outside plant, inside plant, data center and wireless markets — arenas where it is established as a contractor and designer.
“[When it comes to cell towers], we’ll design it, engineer it, build it and maintain it. Our old name dates back to our beginnings as a voice, data and video solutions provider. We’ve grown to offer new services and ‘Communications Infrastructure’ better reflects our capabilities and strategic goals,” said Joe Siemek, PE, senior vice president.
With revenues of $117 million in 2011, KCI-CI maintains a staff of more than 80 project managers, supervisors, engineers, installers and technicians. The company also plans to expand and offer its full range of services throughout the United States.
