Reeve Engineers.

Linking the vast distances of Alaska with the latest in telecommunications technology seems a colossal task for any business. Not so, according to Reeve Engineers. It's simply a tough job that requires the know-how and practical experience that can make technology work for any Alaskan business, no matter what its size. It's the type of job that's helped Reeve Engineers build its own history of success.

After 15 years of doing business in Alaska, Reeve Engineers has proven willing to go 'the extra mile,' providing the vital telecommunications systems and wide range of services its customers have come to depend on. Over the years, that's called for a lot of business trips, says Whit Reeve, owner, operator and sole employee of the Anchorage-based company.

"I've been to just about every corner of this state designing and installing telecommunications systems," Reeve says. "Building telecommunications systems in Alaska is not difficult really, once you overcome the logistics. When I go into a job it's my first responsibility to listen to my customer, to hear what it is they want to accomplish. From there I can then design a system to meet their demands."

Overcoming obstacles, pinpointing problems then matching them with the right solutions are the main business objectives for Reeve Engineers. A kind of one-man show that does it all, the company started small and has stayed small, keeping overhead low and returning yet another advantage to the customer.

A life-long Alaskan, Reeve describes himself as "a local boy who's made good." He's also brought a high level of professionalism and expertise to the telecommunications field in Alaska. He holds an engineering degree from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and a Registered Communications Distribution Designer license from Building Industries Consulting Services International, Inc. In addition to his work in the field, Reeve has also published numerous articles in trade journals and two handbooks on telecommunications engineering.

"There's a lot more to my work than staying in the office all the time," Reeve says. "A big part of my job is staying current with what's happening in a field that changes by the moment. One of the most important things I have to offer my customers is my level of professionalism and knowledge of what's available."

With years of successful business in many communities throughout Alaska to his credit, Reeve says he is looking to expand his business a little closer to home. "I think there is a lot of need in Anchorage for the kinds of services I have to offer," Reeve says. "My company is the only business I know of offering the kinds of telecommunications engineering services I do. I'm confident I have valuable skills to offer many businesses in the Anchorage area, whether they are large or small."

With an accomplished name already established throughout much of Alaska, Reeve Engineers hardly qualifies as a "rookie" in the Anchorage telecommunications market. In the past, Reeve has completed successful projects for both GCI and Alascom, as well as the Municipality of Anchorage. Just some of the telecommunications services Reeve Engineers provide include:

* Project Construction and Management

* Economic Studies and Tariff Consulting

* Planning

* Disaster Recovery Planning

* System Designing

* System Troubleshooting

Besides a wide range of services, Reeve says his customers get a guarantee that the job is done right by a highly skilled professional. "After so many years of operating throughout Alaska, I think I've developed the ability to solve almost any problem that comes along."

"I'm still waiting for an 'easy project,' where all the parts and pieces fall into place," Reeve says. "It doesn't exist though. There are challenges with every job. It's my responsibility to come up with the solutions that will get the job done. And it's my job always to look out for the best interest of my customer."
