CHARLOTTE, N.C. / May 24, 2022 / Blue Point Capital Partners and its BPCP IV communication and utility infrastructure services company, National OnDemand, are pleased to announce the additions of Unified Utility Alliance, a cable and fiber construction company, and J&S Communications, a provider of cable and fiber last mile services.

National OnDemand partnered with Blue Point in December 2021 and has quickly made significant strides with organic and acquisitive growth.
“These acquisitions accelerate National OnDemand’s geographic and service offering expansion and augment its team and capabilities as a premier provider of infrastructure services in the U.S.,” said Blue Point Partner Brian Castleberry.

Since 2016, Unified Utility Alliance has provided enhanced cable and fiber construction and installation to the Southeastern United States, specializing in aerial and underground construction.

J&S is a cable and fiber installation provider that focuses on providing superior technology integration and high-touch customer service. Cox Communications ranked J&S as one of the top providers in the nation.

We look forward to continuing to perform at peak levels, while being a major player in enabling National OnDemand’s strategic objectives.”
