Leadcom expands activities in South America

Wins two major Multi Years Contracts for maintenance of cellular sites in Colombia and Bolivia

An important achievement for Israeli telecommunications group Leadcom, which continues to expand its international activity. Leadcom won two major contracts for maintenance of cellular sites for cellular operators in Colombia and Bolivia. According to the terms of the contracts, Leadcom will provide preventative and corrective maintenance services for over 500 sites over an initial two-year period. The deals are valued at approximately $5 million.

The maintenance contracts in Bolivia and Colombia are a reflection of Leadcom's strategy to invest and expand the group's maintenance activity. They follow on the heels of a contract signed in May this year for maintenance of 1,800 sites in Ecuador. These wins strengthen Leadcom's position in South America as a leading company in the field of design, construction and maintenance of cellular sites.
