REACH Communications, Inc. is a thriving small business, a family-owned company. There are 2 main facets to our company. On one side, we do Installations (including design/build) and Product Sales. This is a significant aspect of our business, with dedicated staff. The other side is Event Production & Rental Services. On this side of the business, we have the capability to provide a broad range of services, from complete technical production for major conferences & festivals, to equipment & technical labor for artist concerts and outreach events, to simple rentals.
The two sides of our business are synergistic. We use the gear that we sell, so we have extensive in-house knowledge about what works well in specific situations, and what doesn’t, which gives us a keen grasp of best practices. In addition, because we do events in numerous churches and schools, we see how a variety of systems and designs are working for these venues, and this is a constant source of information for us about what works best. These factors, coupled with strong engineering knowledge, allow us to achieve success in carefully fitting the most appropriate equipment and system design to each of our installed-system clients.
We serve a wide range of clients, including performance artists, event promoters, non-profit organizations, houses of worship, schools, community groups and corporate businesses. While we have a strong emphasis in the area of churches, charitable organizations and schools, and in faith-based performance events, our clients include others as well.
Reach Communications was founded in 2001 by Mark and Dan Brown in the greater metropolitan area of Minneapolis, MN. They recognized that their shared base of technical knowledge & experience, now totaling more than 40 years combined, was a natural foundation for such a business venture. This is a father / son management team, with family-owned small business values, a strong work ethic, and an appreciation for customer budget issues. A major growth factor for us has been that both Mark & Dan bring strong technical skills and a solid understanding of customer needs to every event and project. As we expand our staff, we strive to make sure that we maintain our standards for technical skill and understanding our customer’s needs. As a result, we have grown from our early beginnings to having a highly capable staff that is matched by very few in our class.
