We are pleased to announce that Nextera Communications acquired Telephone Associates earlier this year. The combined company will continue operating under both the Nextera and Telephone Associates names.
“We always admired Telephone Associates’ commitment to customer service, their loyal customer base and their support for the communities of Duluth and Superior and surrounding area,” says President Greg Arvig. “With this purchase, we’ve retained the existing TA employees. Together, we’ll continue to provide local support for customers and also offer new, exciting opportunities when their needs change.”
Nextera has built a next-generation, all-digital infrastructure that delivers IP networking for customers of all sizes. Telephone Associates’ business customers can immediately take advantage of advanced services such as Hosted Voice (including a full range of work-from-home options), SIP trunking, virtual private networking and call center telephony as well as fiber and fixed wireless for high-speed internet needs.
We are a team of highly trained individuals that work together to provide, install and maintain critical digital and electronic equipment and systems. We deal with business phone systems including digital, hosted and VoIP. We also are involved with video camera systems for security plus setting up and maintaining computer network systems for small to medium businesses and organizations. We work with business and organization that range from very small to very large here in Northern Minnesota. North and North Central Wisconsin, and the West U.P. of Michigan.
TA has been in business for 50 years by consistently providing not just high-quality products, but most importantly supporting and servicing those products throughout that products service life. We are local, all calls regarding any questions, billing, and service are received here in Superior, WI. All service is based here so your technician does not have to drive up from one of the large cities to our south. Our goal is to take care of our customers at a higher, more personal level than our competition, especially the Mega-companies we are in competition with.
