Upon deciding that the long hours of around the clock work and travel required of government jobs wasn’t the best option for a family life, in 1979 he made the move to focus his full attention on operating the company and growing the business. As the years flew by the business grew to include new employees and many more vendors and customers. There have been many long days, nights, and weekends logged over the years for our customers, each one seen as an opportunity to exceed a customer’s expectation. Mike fully acknowledges that he has been immeasurably blessed in these efforts and that his obsession with honest customer service has been the cornerstone of the company's success.
As they say, time passes fast when you’re having fun. Many years later, Ozborn Communications remains focused on honest customer service at the daily direction of Mike Ozborn.

Around 1970, as a teenager, Mike Ozborn developed what some friends have described as an obsession for both radio communications and emergency operations. He soon found that while the two fields have their differences, they also rely heavily on each other. The intrigue of this connection spurred him to become involved in both. While still in school, he began a business in communications while he also was involved doing part-time work with public safety agencies, some of them paid and some volunteer. As time passed, he completed training in both electronics training and law enforcement. There were many generous mentors in those days willing to dedicate time and attention to helping others become proficient in their skills and he took advantage of their guidance and of the opportunities they offered. Upon completing his education, he held employment with several state public safety agencies, gaining valuable experience and creating respected personal relationships that are still treasured today. This experience provided Mike with a unique combination and range of understanding in both fields, enabling him to know not only what equipment is needed, but also how it is used on a professional level. That combination of experience is extremely rare in this industry and has been instilled in others in the company as they have been trained from that basis.
