Why Tecnorad Italia built and sold towers in Italy
Leading turnkey service provider develops remote monitoring and control solution for Europe
TowerXchange wanted to deepen our understanding of the independent developers who own, or owned, around 1,000 towers in Italy. As previously noted in this Journal, Europe has relatively few ‘middle market towercos’, yet several independent developers have built and sold towers in Italy. To understand the drivers, we spoke to Tecnorad Italia, a turnkey service provider who recently sold a 134 tower portfolio to EI Towers for €17mn.
