MuxCo is an operator of digital radio in the United Kingdom. It is, in joint ventures, the licensee for local DAB ensembles in various parts of England and Wales. The company is owned by Arqiva and Folder Media.[1] Despite having had several licences since 2008, it didn't launch any services until 2013.

The first launch, of the multiplex based in Wrexham and Cheshire, was planned for November 2012[2] but was pushed back to the beginning of 2013. Test transmissions from Moel-y-Parc began on Monday 11 March 2013 and from Wrexham Rhos on Tuesday 12 March 2013, with full transmissions from these two sites scheduled to commence on 18 March 2013. It was announced on 9 March 2013 that the third transmission site, St John's Beacon, would be added at a later date alongside the launch of Juice FM on the multiplex.[3]
