Valmont Industries Inc., a leading global provider of engineered products and services for infrastructure development and irrigation equipment and services for agriculture, expanded with the acquisition of the operational assets of Larson Camouflage in Tucson, Arizona.
Larson is considered an industry-leading provider of architectural and camouflage concealment solutions for the wireless telecommunication market. It pioneered the wireless concealment industry by developing and building the first Mono-Pine camouflaged cellular tower. Their innovative engineering capabilities, product quality, and attention to aesthetic detail have led to growth and differentiation across all major wireless carriers.
"The addition of Larson Camouflage concealment solutions to our portfolio is an exciting advancement of our growth strategy in the wireless communication market," said Stephen G. Kaniewski, President & CEO of Valmont.
"5G implementation demands more network densification, leading to growth in macro sites and small cell deployments. Proximity to urban areas will require innovative concealment solutions to enhance the visual appeal of small cell applications. Combining Larson's creative solutions with our global manufacturing footprint, sales team, and customer base allows us to provide an integrated concealment solution to wireless communication customers around the world,” he added.
At our 2018 Investor Day, we shared our strategy of delivering creative, integrated solutions in support of 5G expansion. The Larson team is well-positioned to meet this growing demand, and we are excited to welcome them to Valmont," he said.
