InterCloud is getting hurricane recovery-related orders, it says

Shrewsbury-based InterCloud Systems Inc. said recently that subsidiaries have begun to receive purchase orders tied to hurricane repair efforts in Florida and expect additional ones tied to similar efforts in Texas.

“The hurricane telecom rebuilding projects have started to move forward, now that engineers can get to the sites in the damaged areas,” CEO Mark Munro said in a prepared statement. “Our teams have a tremendous amount of experience in disaster work efforts. During 2005 and for several years thereafter, our telecom services division reported approximately $55 million of billings related to Hurricane Katrina alone.”

The provider of network solutions and services also said in its news release that it has won an additional $1.2 million worth of contracts from new and existing customers.
