VISTA, CA – March 4, 2019


The tried-and-true Tempo® brand of test and measurement solutions is reborn

We are pleased to announce that as of February 1, 2019, a new company, Tempo Communications, Inc., has re-established the trusted Tempo® brand of communications test and measurement equipment through the purchase of Greenlee Communications and Greenlee Communications Ltd. from Emerson. For its business partners and customers, the acquisition means innovative, relevant and reliable solutions delivered with enhanced speed and agility, backed by more personalized service and support.

“The strength of its customers, brands, products and people led us to purchase Greenlee Communications and establish Tempo Communications, Inc.,” said Jason Butchko, the company’s president and CEO. “As a privately held company under management ownership, we remain committed to our partners and customers while aggressively expanding our portfolio through innovative, application-driven products manufactured to make the industry safer and more productive.

The new but seasoned executive management team, supported by existing Greenlee Communications staff, brings experience, continuity, passion and support while remaining committed to partners and customers. As the former vice president and general manager of Greenlee Communications and CEO of Textron Tools and Test, Butchko is excited to begin his role as Tempo Communications’ president and CEO. He welcomes John Parizek, former CFO of Tempo Research, as CFO, and David Collmann, current CEO and President of TesCom, as Executive Vice President (EVP).

“Parizek and Collmann bring a wealth of experience from the telecommunications test industry to the new Tempo,” explained Butchko. Together with the rest of our team, we are laser-focused on nimbly delivering the best solutions in the industry at an exceptional value.”

During the integration process, the Tempo Communications leadership team remains committed to transparency as well as superior service and reliability. This includes providing continuity and support to its partners while minimizing any disruption in its end-users’ day-to day operations. A Tempo rebranding process has begun, and a new logo will be publicly unveiled shortly, along with a new website and collateral. More information on the new Tempo Communications will be distributed as it becomes available. For questions about the transition or to place an order for any of the Greenlee Communications products, our offices can be reached at (800) 642-2155.
