Case Study

In 2016, Jeff Mulligan, COO of Astec Safety Inc., and his partners acquired an ailing company with a negative net worth that was ready to close its doors. However, it had a strong customer base and an excellent suite of products, so they knew there was an opportunity to turn things around if they could modernize their systems, improve vendor relations and cut costs – especially their telecommunication costs. With current contracts expiring soon, they were in a tight spot.
