In 1961, P&R was founded by Paul Reeves and Robert Pahren, hence the name P&R Communications. The company was established in an old gas station on the corner of East First Street and Meigs Street. The foundation of the company was as an Authorized Sales and Service Shop for Motorola and flourished as such. In 1990, Steve and David Reeves purchased the company from their father, Paul, and took over as co-owners of P&R. Through their efforts and dedication to growth, they have grown the company to its current size of over 50 employees.
We have worked diligently to set ourselves apart as a consultative, comprehensive wireless solutions provider for the entire Dayton area. We have grown substantially from our founding days to employ over 50 people from administration, inside sales and customer service to outside sales, public safety sales, service technicians, installers, engineers and project managers. We have diversified our product portfolio to move beyond just the sales and service of Motorola 2-way radios and radio systems. Though Motorola is still the core of our business, we have also picked up carrier solutions such as Nextel, Fleet Management/Vehicle Tracking products, paging, and have entered the siren and light industry for both commercial and public safety customers. In addition, we have expanded our wireless reach to include over 10 tower sites that we have built, maintained and on which we lease space.
We housed the entire operation in our original building on the corner of E. First Street and Meigs until January 2003. Having outgrown our original location, we moved part of the company across the street to what was an abandoned truck dock. We acquired, gutted and renovated the truck dock at 700 E. First Street to make it into our main customer lobby. We believed that in creating a state-of-the-art space dedicated to our customers, the customer experience would be greatly enhanced. We feel very fortunate to be able to have our 2 locations right across the street from one another, as well as being able to stay in Downtown Dayton, where we started and have thrived!
