Celebrating 60 Years of Service
In 1951, the Sanders family vision of providing telephone service to rural Marion County began when Ray and Millie Sanders, along with associate Artel Chamberlain, purchased the Flippin Telephone Company. NATCO had 42 customers and the driving motto “Watch Us Grow.”

Much has changed in the last 60 years. From copper lines strung across fence posts and treetops to buried fiber cable delivering advanced broadband services, NATCO has indeed grown.

Today, NATCO provides telecommunications services to businesses and residents in a 658 square mile m/l service area that encompasses portions of Marion and Boone Counties. NATCO remains a locally owned and operated business with the third generation of the Sanders family working to ensure we provide the most advanced technology and best service for our customers. Our ultimate goal is to deliver telecommunications services to connect you with what is important in your world.

Like the company itself, NATCO’s commitment to the area has also grown over the last 60 years. At NATCO, we believe it is important to invest in the communities and people we serve. Through the South Shore Foundation, NATCO has sponsored community projects to enhance the quality of life for residents and to accomplish the goals of educational advancement, environmental preservation, and economic development through telecommunications and technology.

We appreciate your commitment to NATCO and we invite you, our friends and customers, to join us in celebrating our 60th anniversary. It is an important milestone we could not have reached without your continued support. Our sincere thanks for a wonderful 60 years; we look forward to serving you for many more.
