Telamon Corporation, which specializes in solutions for telecommunication networks, industrial assembly and business process outsourcing, recently acquired CLS Group, a leading site acquisition, design, engineering and construction services provider in the telecom industry, the company announced in a release. CLS also provides land services to the oil and gas industry.
CLS Group engineering holds licenses in 48 states across the country. When CLS’s services are integrated into Telamon’s Deployment Ready Solution® suite of wireless, wireline and in-building services, a pre-construction professional services offering will be created. Such an offering is expected to have the scale to support wireless carriers’, tower owners’ OEMs’ and utility providers’ extensive needs during this time of the accelerating densification trend that impacts macro, small cell and DAS networks across the United States. The acquisition of the CLS Group, which currently performs services on 5,000 sites annually, will help Telamon increase its presence in the wireless market faster.
“This acquisition is a major milestone in Telamon’s strategy to support our client’s network requirements while providing a turnkey offering for the 5G revolution,” Telamon CEO Stanley Chen said in a statement. “Coupling Telamon’s existing suite of telecom solutions with the CLS Group’s skillset only complements the portfolio and positions us to play a critical role in the ongoing wireless densification efforts and buildout of small cell and 5G networks. We couldn’t be happier to have CLS Group join our team.”
Pat Adams, CLS Group’s CEO echoed Telamon’s enthusiasm.
“CLS Group’s value proposition to its customers is the level of expertise and quality that comes from our strong self-perform service capabilities and broad geographic reach,” Adams said. “As the industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, we are excited about the added scale, financial strength, and industry experience that Telamon brings, which we believe will help us fast-track our growth objectives and allow us to better serve our customers.”
“The CLS Group brand is recognized for quality in the industry and CLS will continue to operate under the same trade name within the Telamon portfolio for some period of time,” Randall P. Muench, President of Telamon’s Telecom Solution added.
