Grain Management, LLC, a private equity firm focused on investments in the communications sector, has signed an agreement to acquire Great Plains Communications, which the companies say is the largest privately-owned telecommunications provider in Nebraska.
“We are enthusiastic about the outstanding performance Great Plains Communications has delivered for its customers, and we are thrilled to partner with the current management team to continue pursuing their vision of being the region’s leading provider of high-quality, fiber-based telecommunications services,” said Grain Management Founder/CEO David Grain in the announcement.
Grain will acquire Great Plains Communications from its current owners, whose families have led the company’s growth since 1910, when it began as a local telephone company. Throughout its long history, Great Plains Communications has strategically transitioned itself into a regional provider of fiber-based services through significant investment in its network and facilities.
