RACOM, the company that won a contract to construct an emergency radio communications service for Benton County, has been sold to Eastern Communications Ltd.

In a press release Eastern Communications said, "Eastern Communications Ltd., a leading provider of mission critical communications and services in the Eastern US, announced today the acquisition of Marshalltown, Iowa based RACOM Corporation, a leading emergency communications service and technology provider in the Western US.

Together, the companies comprise one of the largest service and distribution platforms in the critical communications industry, establishing a truly national presence spanning 16 service locations from Seattle to New York City.

"For nearly fifty years, we have worked alongside Eastern through multiple generations of leadership for both companies," said Mike Miller, President of RACOM.
