Then on one day in 1975, Bob was called on by Motorola salesman Richard Ambs. Little did Bob know, he had met the next owner of his business. Over the years, the two got to know each other through their pager and radio telephone dealings.
In 1980, Richard Ambs went on to buy the telephone answering service and paging company from Bob.
In a serendipitous twist of fate, the company was now back in hands of the same family who started it.
Helen Miller was the great aunt of Richard's wife Joan. With the change of ownership, we changed our name. We were now Swartley-Ambs Communication Center.
The name 'Swartley-Ambs' still shows up as caller ID for one of our old phone lines. (We’re sentimental, so we are keeping that particular phone line. Forever.)
