About Us

Our Company

Based in the greater Seattle area, Paracom began as a technology oriented company providing high quality public communication services in major traffic venues such as airports, convention centers and cruise terminals.

The company was founded in 1997 by two former employees of McCaw Cellular - David Fukuhara, who worked in Business Development, and Daniel Agar, who worked in Engineering.

Paracom - Our HistoryIn 1998, Paracom began the installation and management of pay telephones, prepaid phone card machines, and dollar change machines at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as a subcontractor for US West, which later became Qwest Communications.

In 2000, Paracom opened a branch office in Honolulu, Hawaii, launching public internet/retail business center operations at Honolulu International Airport. The Paracom Business Center was the first company to launch public internet access and wi-fi for travelers passing through Honolulu Airport.

In 2004, we launched our proprietary concept, FlightDeck Business Centers. We now operate five locations at the Honolulu International Airport.

Also in 2004, Paracom launched comprehensive pay telephone service at Anchorage International Airport with GCI, the largest telecommunications operator in Alaska. To coincide with the unveiling of their new Concourse C, Paracom installed advanced pay telephones along with complementary designed enclosure units to match the new airport interiors.

In 2005, Paracom launched pay telephone service in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, under a sub-agreement with Kellee Communications, Paracom currently operates an all Millennium phone base of 100 payphones throughout the airport.

In 2007, Paracom began foreign exchange services in Detroit Airport under a sub-agreement with ICE Currency Services.

Paracom also partners with a full service graphic design firm, OBOS Creative, to produce all point of sale materials, signage and marketing collateral, as well as web design and development. We believe this partnership gives our company a creative edge in the marketing and promotion of our products and services. Although founded on a telecommunications background, Paracom has constantly evolved with implementation of fresh ideas and concepts using thoughtful, logical methodology, based on a foundation of experience, with proven leadership and management for the provision of diverse airport concession services.
