A new start-up fibre cable manufacturer, Emcab, has commenced operations in Germany thanks to a partnership between Emtelle and Incab. 

Between them, the two firms specialise in the manufacture of ducted, buried and blown fibre cables, blown fibre microducts, plus HDPE and PVC ducts. The new company will offer an extensive cable range, with increased fibre counts of up to 864, covering a wide range of applications including direct burial. The range will also be fully compatible with Emtelle FibreFlow duct and microduct solutions. 

Emcab’s cables are manufactured using Corning optical fibre and undergo regular tests at the specially equipped test sites. The company’s blowing track is built compliant to the requirements of the IEC 60794-1-21:2015 Standard. 

Alexander Smilgevich, CEO of Incab explained: ‘Combining the technical experience and capabilities of both Emtelle and Incab made logical sense to build Emcab and conquer the industry with such high-quality optical cable solutions. Emcab’s primary manufacturing plant is in Erfurt, Germany, which further elevates the service we can provide to the European market, but we will also be manufacturing Emcab cables across four worldwide locations – Erfurt, Hawick, Scotland, Perm, Russia and Arlington, USA. This ability allows us to widen our supply to our customers across a larger geographical area in an efficient manner.’

Tony Rodgers, CEO of Emtelle added: ‘Emcab joins Emtelle’s blown fibre and microduct manufacturing experience with the fibre optic cable capabilities of Incab, to offer a truly best-in-class fibre connectivity solution. We have rigorously tested individual products to ensure that we can go to the market with fully optimised fibre and cable solutions with guaranteed compatibility. The additional fibre capacity this venture brings to Emtelle further enhances the fibre in tube capability and capacity, with guaranteed operability between fibre and duct.’

Sales and manufacturing will commence immediately and Emcab will be fronted by managing director, Robert Deffa-Wilk.
