The transaction will enhance the company’s position in New York’s North Country by expanding its presence in Plattsburgh, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Albany & the Lake Champlain Corridor and adds fiber capacity into Montreal, Canada.
FREMONT, CA: Albany-based provider of optic fiber data, internet, data center, cloud, and unified communications services to enterprise and carrier customers throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, FirstLight, has received the regulatory approvals to complete the acquisition of PrimeLink. The transaction will enhance the company’s position in New York’s North Country by expanding its presence in Plattsburgh, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Albany & the Lake Champlain Corridor and adds fiber capacity into Montreal, Canada.
“PrimeLink has a solid reputation among its customers for delivering exceptional service, investing in the communities in which it operates, and cultivating a passion for providing added value to the customer.
This is very consistent with our core values and should bode well as we combine our operations. We are excited to welcome PrimeLink’s customers and members of its talented team to FirstLight,” said Kurt Van Wagenen, president, and CEO of FirstLight.
Once the transaction is completed, FirstLight will begin its integration activities to focus on continuing the same high level of service and support that its clients expect from FirstLight. PrimeLink’s former parent company, Champlain Telephone Company, will continue to operate independently. FirstLight connects customers over 9000 locations with over 30,000 locations serviceable by the company’s over 20,000-mile router. FirstLight was listed as one of the Top 10 Cisco Consulting/Service Companies for 2019 by Enterprise Networking Magazine.
“This acquisition is great news for PrimeLink customers who can now benefit from FirstLight’s expansive network reach and comprehensive set of services,” said Patrick Coughlin, Chief Development Officer for FirstLight. “FirstLight’s growth and strategic evolution will provide the innovative solutions and services that customers in Upstate New York require.”
