Valdosta-based CJB Industries, Inc. has combined chemical manufacturing excellence with exceptional customer service as its formula for success for nearly two decades. So when phone and data connections between the company’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities began to consistently falter, corporate executives knew it wouldn’t be long before business began to suffer.
“We were having significant network issues connecting our three facilities,” said Randall Walton, chief financial officer for CJB Industries. “We realized we needed a whole solution. We were sick of patch working.”
Fortunately, CJB’s IT consultant Jason Bellflowers of Virtual World Technologies was familiar with Tower Cloud’s local presence and capabilities — and he recommended Tower Cloud as the solution to their connectivity challenges.
“I have worked with Tower Cloud in the past, and they have always provided excellent service and delivered on what they promised,” said Jason Bellflowers, owner of Virtual World Technologies. “They have the knowledge and expertise in Valdosta, and I knew they would be the best solution for CJB Industries.”
As often proves to be the case for enterprise customers, connecting their multiple locations proved too cumbersome and costly for tier one carriers, making Tower Cloud the obvious fit.
“Because of our local network and our market knowledge in the southeast United States, we have the ability to connect them with broadband services that they were not able to get from previous providers,” said Joe Patton, vice president, sales and business development for Tower Cloud. “Other providers viewed the opportunity as not economically feasible, which creates an excellent opportunity for Tower Cloud to serve the communications infrastructure needs of CJB and many other enterprise businesses throughout Georgia, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina.”
Tower Cloud was able to leverage the proximity of its local fiber network to CJB’s manufacturing facilities and corporate headquarters in order to implement a customized solution that provides much greater stability and stronger broadband signals. As a result, CJB has been able to take network stability issues off the table — and no longer has to worry if its phones and data connections will work.
“CJB’s network stability has improved remarkably,” Patton said. “And as a company with a culture that embraces technology, that is very important. It leaves them in a strong position to continue to grow without ongoing technology roadblocks.”
Tower Cloud’s unique technology leadership in the southeast, as well as its growing fiber network in the region, positions it as the ideal answer to enterprises seeking improved connectivity in areas underserved by larger carriers. The obvious benefits of this solution has not gone unnoticed by CJB, which has been so impressed with the results that it’s recommending Tower Cloud to other companies and organizations in the Valdosta area.
