Homegrown technology company OACYS celebrates 40 years
Hadley said fiber is the next big thing the company is working hard to expand in the area. Fiber is a different way of transmitting Internet signals from the tower to the home. “They are very small and tiny fiberglass cables, they have to be cut and combined with precision, basically what it allows is for this signal to travel literally at the speed of light.”
Having fiber to offer consumers allows OACYS to reach more customers with a reliable and fast connection through wireless services and the Internet. OACYS owner Ryan Walker said supplying fiber to the area is something that will be a slow process.
As OACYS continues to grow, the company is remodeling its field service building to accommodate all employees. Hadley said the ideal was for the whole company to move in the next two years. An additional use of the birthday party is to let the community know that the company is moving. OACYS has been located in the same building, except for field services, since the company opened in 1982.
“We want to take this as an opportunity to let people know that yes, we’re going to move,” Hadley said. “Just to familiarize people with the idea of, we won’t always be where we’ve been for the last 40 years.”
Hadley is very excited about the next big steps the company is taking. it is, it is a necessity right now ”
