TEMPO COMMUNICATIONS LAUNCHES NEXT GENERATION OF ELECTRONIC MARKER BALLS

Omni Marker II delivers new design and enhanced technology for a safer, more precise dig

Tempo Communications today announced the launch of its Omni Marker II electronic marker balls, complete with a patent pending, self-leveling feature and large-diameter coil structure for optimal locating precision. Free of hazardous materials, the Omni Marker II builds on the company’s 30 years of experience in designing industry-trusted and reliable electronic marker ball and marker technology to identify and locate buried utilities, splices, fittings and more—helping to avoid costly damage and enhance safety.

A product of the innovation that drives Tempo Communications, the environmentally friendly, lightweight and highly durable Omni Marker II marker balls are engineered to allow technicians to “fit and forget.” Once a marker ball is installed, the coil will settle and provide a strong field that is easy to detect for years, within a 5-foot range, with a signal peak directly above the spot for precision locating within inches. Tempo Communications achieved an extended range of 5 feet in its original Omni Marker ball, and this has been carried over into the new, enhanced design.

“Tempo has been a technology leader in electronic marker balls for three decades,” said Jason Butchko, president and CEO of Tempo Communications. “With the launch of the Omni Marker II, we have elevated this leadership position to a new level with a truly innovative, reliable solution that allows technicians to dig safe, dig right and save time. They can have confidence in the product they are using, which is what we strive for in all of our offerings.”

The Omni Marker II contains no hazardous chemicals or fluids, batteries, or active components. Each unit is constructed using highly reliable and durable materials to ensure maximum product life. In addition, the Omni Marker II uses industry standard frequencies, making it compatible with any electronic marker locating device system, including the industry leading locators from Tempo Communications.

GREENLEE COMMUNICATIONS IS NOW TEMPO COMMUNICATIONS

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.
