m2fx to become part of PPC Broadband

Effective from 6 January, fibre-optic cable manufacturer m2fx has been acquired by PPC Broadband, a Belden company headquartered in Syracuse, New York, for an undisclosed sum.

‘This is a merger of two innovative companies which have complementary product lines,’ said Tom Carter, managing director of m2fx, in a newsletter sent to customers. PPC Broadband is a leader in cable and wireless broadband connectivity products, while m2fx specialises in fibre-optic cabling for the telecom market.

Based in Framlingham, Suffolk, in the UK, m2fx’s first product was a fibre protection tube designed to prevent fibres from kinking. Since then the company has expanded into the fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) market with the Miniflex range of pushable fibre-optic cables. Other products include fibre cable designed for aerial deployment and low-friction duct for blown fibre installation.

Belden, which acquired PPC Broadband in December 2012, is a market leader in the industrial components and fixtures industry, with revenues of more than $2 billion.

Over the coming weeks, m2fx branding will disappear as the company becomes part of the PPC Broadband family – although its product brands such as Miniflex and Quikpush will remain.
