Edon, Ohio based Command Technologies, announces move to a larger facility in Somerset, Pennsylvania.

an excellent fit to manage the company in the future. After meeting Dan Simmonds in the fall of 2007, I saw a real opportunity for this young man to
take my place and to continue the company. After getting to know Dan for several months, I felt he would be an excellent fit to continue Command Technologies, after having strong and impressive success with his ownership of AN Wireless Tower Company, LLC since it's beginning in July of 2001.
I am excited to be working with Dan over the next several months to allow Command Technologies to continue operations and also to grow."

I look forward to working with existing customers of Command Technologies and AN Wireless Tower Co, as well as making new friends through Command. Over the next few months, Pat will be present at our Western Pennsylvania location to oversee general operations and to provide training."
