SAM Announces Acquisition of R&S Digital Services

GREAT BEND, KS — SAM Companies, a provider of geospatial and construction services in North America, announces that it completed the acquisition of R&S Digital Services, Inc. (R&S), a Geographic Information System (GIS) consulting firm located in Great Bend, Kansas.

Established in 1986, R&S was the first fully-digital mapping company in Kansas, specializing in GIS services for parcel mapping and 911 data sets for numerous governmental entities nationwide. It is also a provider of hosted, web-based GIS solutions available to clients through cloud services.

R&S's expertise will complement and expand SAM's GIS capabilities, particularly with regard to hosted GIS client services across multiple markets. It will also contribute to SAM's growing services for delivering high-value solutions for public sector clients.

SAM continues to expand its geographic footprint and service offerings through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, with this being SAM's eighth acquisition in five years.

"Acquiring R&S is an outstanding addition to our GIS capabilities nationwide," said SAM President and CEO, Chris Solomon. "Their expertise and accomplishment delivering technology enabled, cloud-based solutions for clients aligns precisely with our own strengths and growth objectives for GIS services."
