An affiliate of one of California’s leading forest management and forest products companies, Setzer Forest Products, ComSites West has deep roots in the wireless industry going back to 1956 and a long history of experience with the ownership and management of low, mid and high elevation tower facilities and the unique customer mix and management characteristics that each has to offer.
