About Us

Our company is built on Safety, Quality, and Teamwork.

Our History

InSite was founded in 2003 by industry veterans, John Reider and Mike Croix, with a mission to deliver safe, honest, and competent services to the telecom industry. They set out to hire, develop, and retain the best technical professionals in the industry, which in-turn allowed the company to build a reputation for quality and timely service. Over the next two decades the company was able to partner with the industry’s leading carriers, tower operators, turf vendors, and utilities to build better networks that met the evolving needs of the digital ecosystem. In 2021, InSite partnered with Ranch Creek Partners and True West Capital Partners to expand operations and invest in further growth.

Our Culture

We pride ourselves in adhering to three core principles in every facet of our company from entry level installers to the CEO.

Safety Culture

Employees are our most important resource and ensuring a safe workplace is of utmost concern. We strive to achieve a zero-incident workplace by ensuring employees are thoroughly trained, equipped with the modern and appropriate PPE, operate in teams that check each other, and are empowered to approach every task and every job with a safety-first mentality.

Unmatched Quality

Reliability is the cornerstone of modern wireless networks and our employees must be just as reliable to their clients and their teammates. We deliver on our commitments, double check our work, and search for opportunities to fix problems ahead of time.

Partnership

Offer our clients the best possible prices for our services. Contain our costs. Create value in everything that we do. Treating our clients and teammates as partners is the best way to avoid mistakes and create new opportunities.
