TENGOINTERNET ACQUIRES AIRWAVE ADVENTURERS
AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 3, 2016 — TengoInternet today announced the acquisition of Airwave Adventurers, Inc., a Napa, California-based WiFi service provider with 47 customer locations across the U.S. and the Bahamas.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Airwave Adventurers founder Jim Ames said he decided to sell the company to TengoInternet after experiencing a heart attack and losing his longtime business partner, who recently retired.
“It was a hard decision,” Ames said in a written statement to his customers. “But I have been in the industry for 13 years and know and respect Eric Stumberg, the founder of TengoInternet. Of all the WiFi companies in our industry, I think they will best serve you.”
Stumberg, for his part, said he was “honored to be selected” by Ames to provide WiFi service to Airwave Adventurers customers.
“The acquisition of Airwave’s customers and certain assets allowed us to help Jim Ames and Airwave’s customers, expand our customer base, expand our service offerings and add superior technical resources in California,” Stumberg said, adding, “We think we can add a lot of value to these properties with our industry leading services, customer success manager model, state of the industry knowledge and capability.”
Ames said Airwave is dedicated to providing its customers with a smooth transition and will be transitioning its contracts and services to TengoInternet over the next two months.
Most Airwave Adventurers customers are located in Arizona, California, and Florida, but the company also has customers in other locations, including Texas, the Northeastern U.S. and the Bahamas.
Founded in 2003, Airwave Adventurers specializes in providing rugged access points and gateway controllers for outdoor WiFi systems serving RV parks, marinas and hotels with its Link ’N Go products.
