Day Wireless Systems Acquires 33 Communications Towers in the Northwest

PORTLAND, OR, November 30- Day Wireless Systems has acquired 33 communications towers as the result of two separate business dealings.  Most of the towers are located in Idaho and Oregon.

The largest group of sites came with 17 communications towers in a transaction that closed on October 30, 2017.  The sites were previously engineered for a multi-state microwave system in a path from the Canadian border in northern Idaho, through the southeast quadrant of Washington State and down the Oregon Cascades to the California border in southern Oregon.

The sites are robust; most are equipped with prefabricated communications shelters, backup power and security fences.  Land was included with three of the towers; other sites operate on long term ground lease agreements.  The facilities are desirable for a variety of uses.  The locations have not previously been marketed and have not been available to the public.  They are expected to fill quickly.

In addition to this procurement, DWS closed on the purchase of Gem State Communications in Boise, Idaho on October 1, 2017.  This acquisition added 16 towers to the DWS portfolio and established a solid footprint for the tower provider in the Boise market.

Day Wireless Systems owns, operates, and manages more than 200 communications facilities.  DWS leases tower space to a variety of wireless operators and welcomes build to suit tower opportunities.  DWS is also the largest full service wireless integrator in the West, providing a full package of services for wireless voice, data, and video applications.  The privately-held company was founded in 1969 and is operated by third and fourth generation family members.  Corporate operations are located in Portland, Oregon with 28 field locations to support operations.
