Transition to TSE-EJC

Dear Clients,

The new year brought changes to Hanson Professional Services Inc. and its telecommunications market. The market separated from Hanson on Jan. 1, becoming two new companies, EJC International (EJC), which are based in the New York metropolitan area, and Technical Systems Engineering (TSE), established specifically to serve clients in New York. As veteran-owned small businesses, EJC and TSE will provide design, engineering, construction and program management services for telecommunications projects worldwide. The new companies will be led by Edward "Ted" Collora, PLS, and Rich Lafortune, P.E. Before starting EJC and TSE, Ted was a senior vice president and telecommunications market principal for Hanson. He previously owned BARC Group Inc., a telecommunications engineering consulting firm in New York that became a part of Hanson in 1997. Rich is a licensed electrical engineer with more than 20 years of experience in the telecommunications industry. He joined Hanson in 2002 and has worked on numerous projects for various clients. Hanson's telecommunications employees in New York also have transitioned to the new companies. We anticipate numerous opportunities to work together on future projects and believe it will allow our firms to more effectively and efficiently focus on our core services, strengths and our clients' success. If you have any questions, or if you want to learn more about how EJC and TSE can help you with your telecommunication engineering needs, please contact Ted at (973) 785-4545 or tcollora@tse-ejc.com . Or visit tse-ejc.com for more information. And, as always, please feel free to contact me at (217) 788-2450 or specori@hanson-inc.com if I can be of service to you. Sincerely, Sergio A. Pecori, P.E.
