About Us

 Our History

JEM Communications was established in 1979 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  We began as a business telecommunications provider, installing and servicing key and PBX telephone systems.  As the communications industry evolved into a converged voice/data/video solution, JEM also evolved as a provider.  JEM has been fortunate to experience stable growth and we've expanded our lineup to include data networking and railroad communications products.

JEM has always embraced the technology curve.  When voice mail was in its infancy we were selling it.  When PBXs first became capable of networking we were installing them.  When Mitel Networks brought to market VoIP products we were among the first to order systems and certify our technicians.

Today the solutions available to connect your business are vast.  From traditional key systems to cloud hosting to massive branch-office VoIP configurations with unified communications, never before have so many dynamic options been available to our clients.

In 2003 JEM was approached by class 1 railroads to solve supplier and quality issues brought about by obsolete and discontinued communication hardware vital to the daily operation and health of the industry.  JEM is now a leading provider of state of the art software and hardware communications solutions for the railroad industry.

JEM has developed an extensive network of railroad suppliers and manufacturing partners with capabilities to support all facets of the product life cycle and technology needs.  Capital investments and dual source strategies ensure we are able to deliver a quality product on time.

 Our Goal

Our business communications goal is to be the best at what we do, not a jack-of-all trades. Therefore, our business model is to be a certified VAR of just a few leading brands; like Mitel, ESI, and Adtran.  That way our investment in product resources and technical training is concentrated on the products in which you invest.

Concerning railroad communications we endeavor to be the conduit through which railroads flow all of their design changes and quality control demands.  JEM is a single coordination point between numerous manufacturers and suppliers, providing rapid prototyping of products from simple accessories to exceedingly complex designs.

Today JEM Communications enjoys a reputation of honesty and reliability, a credit to our business model and the pride we take in our work.  Take the time to read a few testimonials from some of our customers.
