CHR and Hutchins & Wunnenberg Engineering Join to Expand

HOUSTON (June 16, 2008) – CHR Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of telecommunications engineering and infrastructure managed services, and Hutchins & Wunnenberg Engineering, Inc., a provider of complete engineering services to the telecommunications industry based in Camden, Arkansas, announced that Hutchins & Wunnenberg has been acquired by CHR Solutions effective June 16, 2008. Both companies are privately held and terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Tom Smart, president of Hutchins & Wunnenberg, said: “This is an exciting change as it provides expanded opportunities and benefits for our employees, and allows us to provide more valuable services—especially in next-generation network design—to help our clients grow their businesses. CHR brings important new capabilities including marketing, regulatory, network security, financial services, and business strategy.”

He added: “We’ll retain our long history of knowing our clients, understanding their expectations and providing the best quality service possible. We’ll continue to carefully monitor and supervise all phases of every project. And while each project is unique, our commitment to providing the best professional service for every project remains the same.”

James Taylor, chairman and CEO of CHR Solutions, said: “Hutchins & Wunnenberg provide a perfect complement to CHR as it gives us additional engineering resources, especially in CAD and documentation, plus access to multiple new clients in several states. Together, we will help clients grow revenue, control costs, improve operations, manage risk, and align technology to business requirements.”

Hutchins & Wunnenberg will become part of CHR’s Telecommunications and Infrastructure organization managed by Roger Hutton, business unit president. CHR’s telecommunications group also provides engineering and systems integration services along with technology consulting for video services/IPTV, wireless strategies, and next-generation networks.

Tom will become CHR’s Engineer in Charge for the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. Larry Colby will become senior resident engineer based in Cameron, Louisiana.
