TrustComm earned the National Guard’s Minuteman Award for outstanding disaster support during hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma.

“Our long, successful relationship with the state of Texas and many of its most critical agencies is a proud achievement that we do not take lightly, and that we will be able to expand through this contract. Our new contract with DIR will make it easy for contracting officers to fulfill their demanding connectivity requirements,” said TrustComm CEO Bob Roe.

Roe concluded, “This contract vehicle streamlines procurement, enabling us to quickly provide the most advanced managed services supported by the highest levels of customer service.”
