WASHINGTON and MEDFORD, OR — Grain Management, a Washington, D.C.-based investment firm focused on the global communications sector, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Hunter Communications, a regional bandwidth infrastructure provider in southern Oregon and northern California.

Hunter owns and operates one of the largest private fiber optic networks in Oregon, with over 2,000 route miles of fiber. The company provides high bandwidth data and voice services to businesses and homes throughout southern Oregon and parts of northern California.  

Since announcing its investment, Grain has worked closely with Hunter's highly skilled management team to help prepare the Company for its next phase of growth.
