Oak Brook, IL – April 29, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Access Media 3, a leading provider of triple-play media services (high-speed internet, satellite TV and voice) to multi-dwelling unit properties, has secured $3 million in new financing from the Hinsdale Bank and Trust Corporation, one of 15 Wintrust Community Bank charters. These funds will support the rapid growth underway at AM3 including the expansion of service in its existing markets in metropolitan Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul.
“This new available capital enables AM3 to advance its primary goals of aggressively increasing growth while maintaining the highest levels of customer service and satisfaction to our existing market,” stated Scott Rediger, CEO of AM3. “Our dramatic growth in the multi-dwelling unit market is a reflection of careful strategic planning and dedication to innovative products to meet our subscribers’ needs.”
Hinsdale Bank’s commitment to AM3 demonstrates the lender’s confidence in the triple-play provider’s experienced management team and well-executed business model. John Czyzycki, Senior Vice President of Hinsdale Bank stated that, “Although many companies have been forced to consolidate their businesses, AM3 has demonstrated the ability to continue dramatic growth. AM3’s leadership position in the industry appeals to property managers, who typically make service provider selections on behalf of their building associations and landlords.”
AM3 has firmly established itself as one of the Midwest’s largest non-franchised providers of triple-play media services, growing the business to 33,000 subscribers since 2007. The company has also invested in maintaining high product and service standards, including a significant upgrade of its customer call center in 2010.
