Fujitsu Ltd. says its North American arm, Fujitsu Network Communications Inc. (FNC), has purchased TrueNet Communications, Inc. The addition of the Jacksonville, FL based communications infrastructure engineering contractor as a wholly owned subsidiary improves FNC's hand when bidding for contracts as a prime contractor.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The combination of TrueNet Communications' outside plant (OSP) expertise with FNC's inside plant (ISP) experience will enable the company to provide end-to-end services for designing, building, operating, and maintaining fiber and wireless broadband communications networks, Fujitsu says.

"TrueNet's OSP capabilities are an ideal complement to Fujitsu's portfolio, creating a total broadband solution provider," said Greg Manganello, senior vice president and head of services at Fujitsu Network Communications. "With this ISP/OSP design control and single point of responsibility, Fujitsu can ensure a seamless, integrated broadband network and minimize project risk. As a result of this acquisition, whether customers select individual services or an end-to-end solution, we can now help them realize their visions faster."

Established in 1985, TrueNet Communications has approximately 360 employees and primarily serves the North American and Caribbean regions.
