Hamilton Relay’s Growth Renders Employment Opportunities

Aurora, Nebraska– April 24, 2007. Hamilton Relay, a business that provides a unique nationwide communications service to people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Speech Disabled, continues to grow. Hamilton recently acquired four new contracts to operate the relay services in the States of West Virginia, Arizona, Kansas and Maryland.

Relay is a free service that allows people who are Hearing, Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deaf-Blind or Speech Disabled to communicate via the telephone. Through the use of specialized equipment, relay users communicate freely with friends, family and businesses who use a standard telephone.

Incorporated in 1901, Hamilton Telecommunications, parent company of Hamilton Relay, began providing relay service in 1990. Since that time, Hamilton Relay has expanded to become one of the largest telecommunications relay service providers in the United States. With the addition of these new states, Hamilton will up its total number of states to which it provides relay service to 15 states, plus the Island of Saipan, and the Virgin Islands. With 16 years of experience within the relay industry, Hamilton’s relay division makes up one-half of Hamilton’s total revenue. To date, Hamilton has been selected as the relay provider 36 times considering renewals and RFP processes by a variety of states and organizations across the country. “That in itself says a great deal for the stability and longevity of our business operations. Hamilton’s corporate commitment to the relay industry runs deep,” says Dixie Ziegler, Vice President of Hamilton Relay.

As a result of this rapid growth, Hamilton Relay is currently accepting applications for outreach and contract management positions in several States across the country including Maryland, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Georgia and Nebraska. Hamilton has expanded the Wisconsin contract management position to include responsibilities for the marketing and development of Captioned Telephone service (CapTel®), a service designed for individuals who have difficulty hearing on the telephone. CapTel is a captioned telephone service similar to the closed captioning provided on most television programs.

Hamilton Relay offers the opportunity for full-time, stable employment with the opportunity for individuals to grow with the company.

John Fechter, Hamilton Relay National Outreach Manager, comments, “We are very excited about Hamilton Relay’s continued advancement and the resulting opportunities for employment.
