Established in 1950, Arvig has grown from a small, family-owned telephone company to one of the largest independent telecommunications and broadband providers in the nation. For more than 65 years, the company has been delivering cutting-edge technology to residential and business customers throughout Minnesota. These services include high-speed internet, television, phone, business security, Hosted PBX, managed IT solutions and more.
In 2002, Arvig became an ESOP (Employee Stock Exchange Plan) company and today 38 percent of the company is employee-owned. Arvig’s 700+ employee-owners live and work in the communities they serve, and are active participants in local organizations. Community is a core value found at Arvig, and the company takes pride in supporting local businesses, non-profits and schools. For example, Arvig has donated more than $600,000 to local schools via the Arvig School Partnership Program.
Currently, Allen Arvig serves as President and CEO, and his son, David Arvig, is Vice President and COO. Allen and David, along with the Arvig leadership team and Board of Directors, drive the strategic direction for the company and guide its progress. Over the years, Arvig has expanded its business and technology services to better serve its customers. Improving internet access in some of the country’s most underserved rural areas is at the forefront of Arvig’s goals. As part of that initiative, Arvig will hire an additional 200 employees in order to meet its commitments to innovation and growth.
