Welcome Access Communications

Part of PRIME’s ethos is continuous improvement in identifying ways we can build on our services and go after bigger opportunities. It’s in this spirit that we’re proud to announce, we have acquired Access Communications, Inc. and adding their entire team into the PRIME Family.

Access Communications was founded in 1997 by Dave Duarte, based in San Jose. The company specializes in the design and installation of copper and fiber-optic structured cabling and audio-visual systems. Its clients run the gamut from health and pharma, to education, public works, and more, and the names on its CV are heavy hitters who need their tech done right the first time.

This includes Tesla, SpaceX, and Lockheed Martin. This merger plants Dave and his 25 years of local market experience perfectly into the Group Executive role. His leadership is further supplemented by Project Executive Paul Gray. A long-time leader at Access who specializes in AV technology, Paul brings 20 years of AV expertise to Prime and a plethora of high-profile projects that he has both designed and built.

Like PRIME, Access has a roll-your-sleeves-up attitude toward complex, and integrated projects. In August-September 2020, the CZU Lightning Complex wildfires burned through 86,509 acres of the Santa Cruz mountains. Access was the company tasked with performing an emergency restoration of fiber optic systems in the area, which entailed removing and re-installing 90,000 feet of aerial fiber optic cable in the mountains.

Access brings a full design/build Audio-Visual arm to PRIME, a powerful addition to our current low voltage services that will also support our clients with AV expertise in WA, CA and other locations. Access brings the experienced staff and field needed to support every technology scope. It brings a 25-year resume and client base, which will allow PRIME’s Bay Area operations a new measure of self-sufficiency in pursuing new opportunities in the rapidly growing market. And it brings the ability to support AV solutions anywhere PRIME and our clients want to go.
