Birch Communications to Expand Hosted PBX/MS Products with Covista Acquisition

Birch Communications kicked off the New Year by announcing that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire select customer and network assets from Covista Communications, Inc.

Covista is  a  facilities-based telecommunications service provider that serves business, wholesale and residential customers in 48 states. This transaction marks the 17th  acquisition for Birch since 2006.

According to Vincent M. Oddo, president and CEO of Birch Communications, the majority of Covista’s customers are located in southeastern, southwester n and northeastern states, which was a good fit for Birch’s footprint. “In addition, Covista’s Metaswitch-based facilities network, which has switching centers in Tennessee, New York City and Los Angeles, is complementary to our current service footprint while also adding some new markets,” Oddo said. “This acquisition will strengthen the breadth and scope of the Birch IP-Network and will further enhance our hosted PBX, SIP trunking and wholesale service offerings.”
