National OnDemand Acquires Oklahoma-based J&S Communications, marking 16th Acquisition in Four Years

BURLINGTON, NC – National OnDemand, Inc. announced today it has acquired J&S Communications, a leader in Last Mile service delivery with offices in Arkansas and Oklahoma.  The acquisition will accelerate National OnDemand’s geographic growth as it continues to be a premiere provider of Fiber, Wireless, Energy and Technology services in the U.S.

“The performance of J&S is undeniable, and we are excited to bring their talents and dedication to providing exceptional service to National OnDemand,” said Renee Thomas, SVP of Operations for National OnDemand. “Their superior knowledge of drop bury installation and residential and commercial installation as well as their willingness to take on new territories and expand their drop bury, security and commercial work matches perfectly with our intention to provide our key service offerings Anytime, Anywhere.”

“I believe this acquisition is going to significantly enhance our ability to attract and retain technicians as National OnDemand is able to provide additional benefits and career opportunities,” said John Walsh, CEO of J&S Communications. “Undoubtedly, we are creating a better future for our team members and staff through this acquisition.  We look forward to continuing to perform at peak levels, while being a major player in enabling National OnDemand’s strategic objectives.”

J&S Communications has built a stellar track record in providing cable and fiber installation since 1996, and the company has been ranked by Cox Communications as one of the top providers in the United States.

National OnDemand has quickly expanded its national footprint in its first four years since incorporation, in large part due to its ability to discover suitable acquisition candidates that enhance its market position.  This acquisition marks the sixteenth for National OnDemand since forming in 2017, but with the announcement of an institutional investment into National OnDemand by Blue Point Capital Partners on December 14th, the Company is poised to further expand and accelerate its acquisition efforts.

“One of the strengths of National OnDemand is the ability to acquire and integrate acquisitions while maintaining operational momentum,” said Blue Point Partner Brian Castleberry.  “We are excited to witness the completion of this newest acquisition first-hand and look forward to seeing the positive impact that the J&S Communications team will have with National OnDemand.

J&S Communications is a family-owned company striving for the highest levels of excellence in technology integration and customer experience for the communities it serves.  John and Shelly Walsh founded J&S Communications in 1996 and with a team of dedicated and talented people, J&S has evolved into a state of the art, award winning organization.  J&S has three offices in the Southern U.S. including: Fayetteville, Arkansas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
