WJ Partners´ Mobile Communications America Completes Add-on Acquisition of Myrtle Beach Communications
Thursday 12 July 2018

12 July 2018 - US-based investment firm WJ Partners has acquired Myrtle Beach Communications (MBC) and merged it to its existing portfolio company Mobile Communications America (MCA), the firm said.

MCA is a provider of two-way radio solutions and services for the construction, transportation, manufacturing, public safety and government industries.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Since being acquired by WJ Partners in 2013, MCA has grown from five locations primarily serving metro Atlanta to 33 locations across six Southeastern states.

The expansion has been fueled by 13 add-on acquisitions that not only expanded MCA's geographic reach but also added new capabilities to better serve the company's customers.

WJ Partners has grown MCA into the nation's largest Motorola Solutions service provider, Motorola's largest manufacturer's representative, and one of the largest resellers of Motorola Solutions in the country for 2017.

Through its 2016 acquisition of Wireless Communications, MCA also became the sole North American distributor of Nokia microwave backhaul systems and MPLS technology, a complementary service to MCA's two-way radio solutions.

The acquisition of MBC extends MCA's reach into the Grand Strand area of South Carolina, filling a gap between existing locations in Charleston, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina.

First Tennessee Bank provided the debt capital for WJ Partners to complete the acquisition.
