CapRock Communications has acquired Arrowhead Global Solutions Inc., a supplier of integrated communications solutions to the federal government and military. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
CapRock's global network and Arrowhead's experience will enable both companies to offer a broader range of services to the government and systems integration markets, CapRock said.
Moreover, Arrowhead customers?including first responders and government personnel?will benefit from its global infrastructure, which includes 10 regional operations centers.
Arrowhead of Fairfax, Va., has a lengthy track record of providing mission-critical services to the government and military. For customers of both companies, the move will mean a broader array of available satellite-based network solutions as well as greater engineering and systems integration capabilities, CapRock said.
Arrowhead will become a wholly owned subsidiary of CapRock. Mary Ann Elliott will remain as chairman and CEO of Arrowhead.
CapRock, a provider of global satellite communications, is based in Houston.
