In addition, we now supply fitting packages for all types of overhead optical fibre cables, a growing range of telecommunications products and a wide range of factored products.

Our company has always placed a very high priority on providing a complete service to its customers ranging from product development aimed at meeting specific needs, to training in product installation.
