33 Years – IES Communications

IES Communications was created as a structured cabling provider in 1984. Matt Simmes, President, joined in 1993.

IES Communications has added new product lines and services and is now a leading provider of network infrastructure products and services for data centers and other mission critical environments across North America.


Between 1997 and 2011, IES consisted of a group of electrical contractors.  IES’ corporate vision was to achieve synergies associated with several other industry consolidations. 

In mid-2011, IES began a strategy to move away from the cyclical nature of electrical contracting towards strategic platforms with sustainable competitive positions or leadership positions.

With several operational initiatives and the creation of  Infrastructure Solutions, IES has emerged into a holding company operating four businesses that offer industrial products and infrastructure services.  While we have grown, our businesses are North American-based and are comprised of operations where many of the original owners and employees continue to lead their operations.    

We seek to continue our growth by investing in current and new employees who share  our ownership mindset or by acquiring businesses with similar operating philosophies, leading market positions and strong cash flow generation potential that can optimize and benefit from our unique tax attributes.
