Over A Half-Century of History and Service
TFMComm’s predecessor, Mobile Communications Company, began as an authorized Motorola Service Center over seventy years ago. In 1948, the foresight and optimism of Jim Frazee and partner Charles Holman, led to an offer from Motorola to establish an authorized service center to serve Northeast Kansas and the surrounding vicinity.
The two partners pooled their funds to make the initial investment of $165 for parts, and armed with their first $40 per month service contract, they began to build a reputation of fast, friendly, quality service which remains the hallmark of the present day TFMComm, Inc. business philosophy.
In the early fifties, the company steadily grew as businesses began to see the benefits and value of 2-way radio systems. Housed in the Yellow Cab Company, located at 419 Jackson Street in Topeka, Kansas, the partners realized that they no longer had enough room to handle the test equipment and radios that modern technology required. A vacant lot at 125 Jackson, just down the street, was chosen as the location for new facilities. The new home for Mobile Communications at 125 Jackson opened its doors in September 1958, and continues to remain part of the TFMComm complex of buildings.
During the late fifties and throughout the 1960s, Mobile Comm grew at a steady rate. In 1974, the company was sold to longtime employee Doug Flair, the current president of TFMComm. At the time the name was changed, due to the fact that an Omaha shop was operating under the company name of Mobile Communications. Topeka Mobile Comm became Topeka FM Communications, which was soon shortened to TFMComm. The company has continued its successful growth due to its ability to keep stride with current technological developments. TFMComm now serves a twenty-one county area, a broad regional customer base...and offers the same fast, friendly, quality service which has always remained paramount throughout the company’s growth.
