MidStates Wireless, Inc., formerly known as Elder’s Radio Communications was originally formed in 1946 to work on consumer electronics during and following WWII when replacement parts were difficult to find. Elder’s Radio Communications installed its first commercial RF communications in a fleet of taxi cabs for Doyle Cab Company in Fargo, ND. The company has remained in the same family for the past 70 years and has been handed from one generation to the next. Today the corporation deals primarily in commercial two-way, public safety, interoperability solutions from the RF subscriber, to the dispatch center technology up to and including the construction and maintenance of the tower facilities.
MidStates Wireless has two primary locations; the headquarters in Fargo, ND and a satellite shop in Minot, ND. We have four technicians, two installers, one outside sales professional, and six office staff that are assigned to the headquarters location in Fargo, ND and two technician/installers assigned to the satellite location in Minot as well as a second outside sales professional tasked with the western side of North Dakota. These technicians are strategically located to provide rapid responses to our commercial, public safety and government customers.
