Comcast and DirecTV vendor UniTek ramps back up

Nearly 18 months after emerging from restructuring from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Pennsylvania pay-TV services installer UniTek Global Services appears to be ramping back up.

The company's operational structure remains obfuscated — it hasn't put out any public communications since its January 2015 emergence from bankruptcy, and is no longer has any marketing/communications presence in its King of Prussia headquarters. 

On Tuesday, however, the company placed wanted ads to fill 11 installer positions for its FTS USA division, serving Comcast  (NASDAQ: CMCSA) contracts in Huntsville and Mobile, Alabama, Nashville and Memphis Tennessee, Little Rock, Arkansas, and Fort Worth, Texas, among other locations.  

This followed the Sunday posting of 20 help wanted ads for UniTek's DirectSAT division, which services DirecTV (NYSE: T), with position locations ranging from Harrisburg, Bethlehem and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Fairfield, New Jersey to Green Bay, Wisconsin.
