Making Friends Worldwide

As Alamon expands its technology development, we are developing new relationships with people throughout the worldwide tech community. Our IT department has had the pleasure of working with a Brazilian mobile software engineer, André Servidoni de Oliveira. One of our current software initiatives includes a floating action button library OMFM  https://github.com/DeKoServidoni/OMFM written in Kotlin by André under the Apache 2.0 license.

André has been willing to lend a hand in integrating his library into Alamon’s software solution. We are thankful for the use of his library and assistance with integration as Alamon works to stay on the cutting edge of technology.

Professional Inspection Services

Alamon’s Outside Plant Division has kicked off a new project with existing customer Pioneer Telephone in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. The new job is the first of their Alternative Connect America Model projects that could last up to 8-10 years. Pioneer is installing fiber to update broadband for rural customers throughout Oklahoma. Alamon is providing inspectors to assist Pioneer with success of their project. These inspectors will be monitoring the placing contractors and providing Pioneer with other information per customer request for these projects.

Keeping the Ball Rolling

Alamon enjoyed a successful partnership with Frontier Communications in 2017 as we worked together to boost broadband speeds for households and businesses across rural America. Our collaboration with Frontier continues in 2018 as we build a new fixed wireless network stretching from Florida to Texas. We are proud to be bringing increased bandwidth to Frontier customers, giving them access to cutting-edge technologies and services.

Soaring to New Heights

An Alamon representative will join a training event with McCarthy Building Company next week to explore opportunities with the Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA) expansion project. Behind the strength of our capabilities in structured cabling and low-voltage projects in fiber and communications, Alamon is aiming to forge relationships with large general contractors such as McCarthy. Alamon’s cabling abilities are a perfect match for projects in airports, schools, commercial buildings, hospitals and government buildings. Give Alamon a call for your next cabling project.

Leadership is Key

Among the qualities required of our leaders at Alamon is that each strives to keep the company on the cutting edge. Many of those in our leadership team are meeting at headquarters in Montana this week to share their ideas and plans for moving Alamon forward. We will focus on how to better serve our customers, employee safety, our culture of employee ownership and increasing our process efficiencies, along with other topics. Valuing the input of managers and staff is a big part of what has made Alamon a thriving company for more than four decades.

Recovery Mode

Alamon crews have played a vital role in helping Southern California recover after the recent devastating fires. Our technicians assisted Sprint in cell-site backhaul restoration, working long hours to reinstate service in areas affected by the disaster. (The photo illustrates the extent of these fires as orchard employees had to race from this site, unable to get to their vehicles before they burned to the ground.) Emergency response is just one of the many ways Alamon delivers critical services to our customers and communities.

Assisting Community Growth

Alamon has begun work with the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) in Texas to upgrade its network infrastructure and provide new and improved services to electricity customers. LCRA is the government entity that controls and maintains the power-generation equipment and sells bulk electricity to the service providers. The LCRA is committed to enhancing quality of life for Texans through providing water stewardship, electricity and other services related to the country’s lesser-known Colorado River, which is found entirely within Texas borders. Alamon is proud to be a part of this new infrastructure build and looks forward to future partnerships with the LRCA.
