Open House at new ACS building

Posted: Tuesday, July 29, 2003

Now there is one stop shopping for all your Alaska Communication Systems services on the Central Peninsula. ACS is now located in one location in Soldotna at the corner of Kobuk and Wilson St. just a block off the Sterling Highway

. The formerly unoccupied gray warehouse has been totally renovated into a modern facility that has brought all the ACS offices and facilities in the local area under one roof. "We've been in four separate buildings here between Kenai and Soldotna and we were looking for a place where we could consolidate and get all our employees together in one location for better coordination and better efficiency," said Chuck Stauffer, ACS Southwest District Manager.

 

Visitors and community members enjoyed a free BBQ and got to meet Iditarod Musher Paul Gebhardt and his lead dog last week at the ACS Open House at their new location in Soldotna.

The new facility accommodates retail sales for wireless cell phones, local service for the western Kenai Peninsula, Kodiak and 28 communities on the Aleutian Chain. Additionally, the internet and long distance service is supported from the new location.

Hundreds of visitors and community members came out under sunny summer skies to celebrate an open house at the new ACS facility last Friday enjoying a free barbeque and having a chance to meet Iditarod musher Paul Gebhardt and the lead dog that took him to a 2nd place finish in Iditarod 2002. Gebhardt spent the afternoon greeting kids and signing posters. "We do our best at ACS to support worthy causes, one of our strongest is the United Way, and along with that we selectively contribute to as many things as we can. Paul Gebhardt is a great guy and we really enjoy sponsoring him," added Stauffer.
