Public Communications Services acquires AGM Telecom
Los Angeles, CA- Public Communications Services (PCS) is pleased to announce the acquisition of our current call processing equipment (CPE) partner AGM Telecom, based in Keller, Texas. AGM Telecom is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of PCS. The corporate headquarters of PCS will remain in Los Angeles, with the AGM Telecom office now a satellite office in Texas under the PCS umbrella.
In 2007, PCS CEO, Paul Jennings laid out a strategic vision for PCS that included both vertical and horizontal integration. The AGM Telecom acquisition represents an important vertical integration step for PCS, allowing it to have more control over the design and servicing of its CPE, a critical component of the PCS business. Said Paul Jennings, “with this acquisition, PCS will be able to gain efficiencies, strengthen core competencies, and enhance service offerings and service processes by standardizing on a single CPE platform.”
AGM Telecom and PCS will continue to focus on developing “best in class” equipment that provides corrections officers with cutting-edge investigative and administrative tools, while giving inmates and their friends and families the highest quality communication options and advanced payment selections. With the acquisition of AGM Telecom, PCS continues to build its customer base in medium to large correctional facilities nationwide.
