TASI Group Acquires Mission Communications, adding to its Wireless Asset Management Capabilities
MARLBOROUGH, MA and NORCROSS, GA – The TASI Group of Companies (www.tasigroup.com), reached an agreement to acquire Mission Communications located in Norcross, GA.
Mission Communications will be organized into TASI’s largest business segment, TASI Flow. Mission will immediately complement TASI Flow’s existing Asset Management and Wireless Connectivity Strategy, bringing a strong presence in the water and wastewater market. Forrest Robinson will continue to lead the company on its impressive growth track as President of Mission.
“We are pleased to have Mission Communications as part of our organization,” stated TASI CEO John McKenna. “TASI is committed to providing cost-effective, wireless connectivity to our customers, helping them to monitor and manage their valuable assets.”
“Using TASI Flow’s global footprint we are excited to support Forrest’s vision of expansion beyond North America,” added TASI Flow President John Norris.
“Mission’s extensive installed base in the water and wastewater market is complementary to TASI’s current asset management, flow meters, and instrumentation capabilities,” explained Forrest Robinson, President of Mission Communications. “And there will be ample opportunities to leverage each other’s technology and increase our value proposition to customers.”
Mission leadership would like to take this opportunity to thank our valued customers for their continued support, our distributors and representatives for their tireless promotion, and our suppliers for continuing to provide the quality materials we need to manufacture and ship our products especially in these uncertain times. Above all, we would like to thank the sales, accounting, production, engineering, and technical support employees of Mission, without whom none of this would be possible. As we join with TASI Flow we anticipate integration of sister division’s pump station controllers, as well as level and flow metering products, which will extend the “one stop shop” for your water and wastewater needs, and with their assistance begin to bring Mission products to international markets. Finally, we pledge that the new corporate structure will not change the customer-centric ethos we have adhered to over the past 20 years.
EC M&A acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Mission Communications for this transaction, which was finalized April 30, 2021.
