TESSCO Technologies, a leading provider of the product and value chain solutions required to build, use and maintain wireless systems, is entering into an expanded partnership with the Associated Carrier Group (ACG), a consortium of more than 30 wireless carriers serving the U.S. market. Under the agreement with ACG, TESSCO will supply ACG members with the end-to-end product and supply chain solutions to build and maintain cellular base stations at the lowest total cost.
“We are honored to be a major supplier to ACG and greatly value our expanded relationship from supplying mobile device accessories to include base station infrastructure products and solutions,” said TESSCO Founder, Chairman and CEO Robert Barnhill. “Our goal is to make the difference in ACG and their members’ success by providing the best products, kitted, and delivered on time to achieve rapid and productive deployment at the lowest total costs.”
“ACG and TESSCO have successfully partnered for nearly five years to deliver member organizations preferred pricing and a variety of value-added services related to mobile device accessories,” said Russ Lipinski, President & Executive Director of Associated Carrier Group. “We’re excited for our members to partner with TESSCO on wireless infrastructure products and solutions as well.”
TESSCO has offered preferred pricing to ACG members since 2011 for mobile accessories. CommScope, a long-time technology and manufacturing partner of TESSCO, will help facilitate the amended agreement.
“CommScope is very excited to be partnering with TESSCO on supporting the Associated Carrier Group through this initiative,” said CommScope National Channel Manager Ray Simon. “This program will help deliver the ACG Wireless Carrier members access to the CommScope Network Infrastructure solutions that are needed for their markets.”
The partnership is being announced at the CTIA Super Mobility tradeshow Sept. 9-11, 2015 in Las Vegas.
