You guessed it: INSTALLS doesn't take stuff out; it puts stuff in. The company installs direct broadcast satellite and broadband satellite systems, home theaters, computer networks, window treatments, and other technology and home systems for retailers that include Best Buy, Dell, DIRECTV, Sears, and RadioShack. The company, which works through a network of more than 1,200 local installation companies and technicians, serves more than 8,000 stores throughout the continental US. It also provides service in some markets in Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. San Francisco-based private equity firm Genstar Capital is the company's principal investor.
INSTALLS expanded with the 2003 acquisition of AmeriLink, an Ohio-based cable and premises wiring installation firm and former subsidiary of RadioShack. – less
