Implecho Launches as a Result of a Merger of Rhino Communication Rentals and TourGuide Solutions, Plans for Nationwide Growth.

Brookfield, Wis. (March 18, 2021)

Implecho, a new affiliate company of OwnersEdge, makes its official debut today, launching a new corporate website and brand identity.

Bringing together audio and communications technology brands from Rhino Communication Rentals and TourGuide Solutions, Implecho’s aim is to inspire ordinary to extraordinary technology solutions that solve communications challenges.

“Many organizations struggle with audio and communication challenges that depend on their specific surroundings,” said Director of Implecho, Bridget Pedersen. “Implecho is uniquely specialized in providing industry-specific technology and services for a variety of niche applications.”

Implecho will continue with TourGuide Solutions and Rhino Communication Rentals as brand divisions. The main industries served include: 

  • Construction
  • Education
  • Manufacturing
  • Live Events & Tradeshows
  • Fairs & Festivals
  • Film & Event Production
  • Meetings & Training
  • Retail
  • Warehouse & Fulfillment
  • Tourism

“With events starting to return and safe group communications needs on the rise, Implecho can offer organizations of any location, shape or size rental and purchase equipment options to deliver their message with clarity despite environmental factors,” said Pedersen.

Implecho will be headquartered in Brookfield, Wis., with three locations in the Midwest. Rhino specializes in the design and deployment of two-way radio rental communications solutions across a number of industries, including film and production, outdoor special events and construction. TourGuide Solutions is a nationwide provider of rental and purchase audio headsets and assisted reality wearables to enhance plant tours, employee training, virtual communications and events.

“It is recognized that both TourGuide and Rhino are unique, strongly branded businesses,” said Mark Wild, Executive Vice President of OwnersEdge. “Both share business processes that enable best-practice execution. Leveraging process synergies while co-branding with Implecho will continue to support our customers and scale more effectively going-forward. Also, as technology continues to evolve, the new company will enable adding applications and divisions without duplicating business processes.”

The merger was completed by OwnersEdge on January 1, 2021. In 2020, there were significant shifts with customer needs and opportunities with virtual employees prompting the company to bring on its first augmented reality line with RealWear’s rugged wearable. The long-term plan for Implecho is to expand to six aggressive growth brands across North America.

OwnersEdge, an ESOP holding company, now has four 100% employee-owned businesses – BAYCOM, Inc.CC&NQComp Technologies, and Implecho – and more than 300 employees.
